Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.
Our words were:
acid, backfire, charm, cloud, final, game, gold, goose, habit, pity, play, plum, rich, ripe, same, silly, sorry, sour, spell, voodoo, wave.
She had to be Top Dog, have the best, be the best, and would be second to no-one.
Cross her, and you would be on the receiving end of her acid tongue! Charm was definitely not in her vocabulary, and the silly goose of a woman had a face that could sour milk if she didn’t get her own way. Even her family joked that should anyone put a voodoo spell on her, it would backfire and they would be very sorry indeed.
It was a pity really that she developed a pretentious air of grandeur, speaking in rich affected tones as if she had a plum in her mouth, and wave her hands in exaggerated gestures. It was a habit her grandchildren found ripe for them to play an imitation game at her expense totally oblivious of the cloud of fury that hung over her. The final straw came when she noticed her grand daughter wearing the same gold earrings as herself and got herself in such a tizzy, she had a heart attack and was rushed into hospital.
