Saturday Mix: Double Take 6th March

Welcome to Sarah’s Saturday Mix, 6 March 2021!
Check it out here:

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:

pain – physical suffering, distress
pane – one of the divisions of a window


plane – a flat or level surface
plain – clear or distinct

Her pain was as plain as the nose on her face.
She’d ducked the first time round, but forgot on the second and ploughed into the smooth plane of the glass pane in the open window.
Surprisingly, it was only her head that had any damage!

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.

    I like this one!

    • thank you! That was me. I actually ducked the first time round and then hit the window full pelt the second. Had a nice gash in my head, but the window was intact!

  2. Oh gosh! That would be funny in a slapstick comedy. In real life, painful!

    Flipping WordPress…let’s try this again.
    This scenario would be hilarious in a slapstick comedy. In real life, it sounds rather painful.

    • It happened to me, and my friend and I spent some considerable time looking for the blood on their front lawn. Luckily my head was the only casualty as the window remained intact.
