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!
