Opposing Forces – Saturday Mix, 5 June 2021

Sarah is our host for the MLMM Saturday Mix challenge.

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 5 June 2021!

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:

shelter and expose

– consonant and vowel

It was a standing joke that when it rained, she would expose herself to the elements and pray for shrinkage. However, when a light shower became a torrential downpour, she’d head for the nearest shelter.

French grammar lessons were never much fun apart from the faces our teacher made when expressing vowels and consonants which always sounded like her knickers were too tight or she had a horrible smell under her nose.

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.

    The facial expressions of the French teacher is so very spot on!!! Hehe! My mother likened them to a monkey pulling faces (not very politically correct but still funny as the teachers really exaggerate)!
