Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces, 19 December 2020

Welcome to Sarah’s Saturday Mix, 19 December 2020!

This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of OPPOSITES. Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our words this week are:

– humid and dry

– import and export

He had a dry sense of humour which did nothing to counter the humidity in the room as he delivered his talk on productivity. Many wished he would agree to import some air conditioning for the factory floor to make it more comfortable for the workers. This in turn would increase productivity, but he was a bean counter and couldn’t see that.
Thus his export figures were plummeting, and the shareholders were complaining.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    I have worked for many a bean counter in my time. I can well relate.
