Double Take – Saturday Mix, 9 January 2021

It’s Saturday and Sarah is our host for the Saturday Mix challenges.

The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our homophone sets this week are:

acts – things done
ax – chopping tool


complacent – self-satified
complaisant – willing to please

You can join in by clicking here

He could not believe such acts of carnage could be committed by a child! Broken and smashed toys were everywhere, and in the centre of it all was a four year old wielding a plastic ax from a toy carpentry set!
The complacent sneer on his face was horrifying as it was so far from the complaisant little boy who had turned into Chucky on speed.

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.

    Hehe! Yep – 4 year olds can be very destructive but this sounds more like the Terrible Twos in my experience…

  2. They have yet to experience the tween-agers who don’t understand their own feelings yet. LOL Well done.
