Double Take – Saturday Mix, 1 May 2021

Sarah is our hostess for the Saturday Mix challenge. This is her invitation this week:

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 1 May 2021!

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:

auger – a drill

augur – foretell


lay -to recline

lei – a flower necklace

The model’s brief was to lay on the sunbed wearing nothing but a lei. She hoped it was a big one to cover her ample assets!

Hubby has a box of bits, but never refers to any of them as an auger. There was no way I could augur we’d be using the largest today to drill a hole through the wall for his radio cable.

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.

  1. On February 9th, I posted an augur/auger mnemonic: An ogre with an auger augurs bad news. I never thought I would ever get to actually use it!
