Take Five: 20th November

This week’s Take Seven is only Take Five due to missing two days following the loss of our darling Maggie.
So instead of 21 words to include in a piece of prose or poetry, we only have 15.
The same guidelines apply regarding pingbacks and links though.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.

Our 15 words were:
BAG, BETTER, BOLT, BOTTOM, CRISP, CRUEL, CUT, GOGGLES, LOVING, MISSED, ONCE, RUN, SCROLL, TALE, TIME.

The idea came to her like a bolt from the blue, and it didn’t take long to bag the little critter.
Some might say it was cruel to catch it, but Maria felt it was better than poison as she could then cut it free and watch it run away. Loving all animals as she did, she wanted no harm to come to any of them.
She’d spent a little time scrolling through various sites for inspiration, and the bottom line was that once she knew what attracted it in the first place, she could prepare her trap accordingly. What a tale it would make for her nephew who would sit goggle-eyed as she recounted bedtime stories, something she never missed when babysitting.
She chuckled as she released her captive from the trap. Who would have thought that mice liked crisps!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
