Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.
Our words were:
cash, cover, dangerous, dangle, diet, fun, hereditary, hopeless, item, judge, lamp, mat, oddment, person, plump, ruby, scant, solemn, trend, trial, wish
Ruby always said her plumpness was hereditary, and wearing scant bikinis on a sizzling hot beach was not for her, but she was a sucker for trying every diet that came to her attention, even in later life. Some, like the chocolate bars, were fun, but most were hopeless and she’d lose her hard earned cash rather than the pounds she was wishing for. The adverts always dangled the carrot of guaranteed weight loss in a short time frame as they tempted you with items said to be full of nutrition and goodness. Of course the person promoting the latest trend always looked slim and graceful.
Who would have thought that a free 7 day trial could be so dangerous.
A solemn young man delivered her order, leaving it on the mat for her to retrieve. When she opened the door, he rushed towards her, knocking her back inside.
She was a quick thinker and grabbed the first thing to hand which happened to be an old lamp she’d made at school from a soda bottle, clay and some pebbles and other oddments she’d collected from the beach.
She smacked him round the head with it, kicked him in the groin, and pressed the panic button on the wall. By the time he’d recovered from her unexpected defensive attack, he was being taken into custody and could not believe he had misjudged his elderly victim so badly.
