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, which may have some truth in it and fits in nicely with yesterday re-post of Dog Whisperer.
Our words were:
animal, betray, double, duet, forever, friend, gist, honest, hump, lies, party, petty, pretend, single, sorry, story, true, trust, tune, wet, whistle
Everyone has a story. Perhaps this is mine, or part of it, though no doubt there are many like it.
The gist of the matter is I have a way with people. They seem to sense I will not betray a confidence, there is no double standard, and I am a friend they can trust.
I usually see through petty lies and will not pretend to believe what is said, purely because someone said it. This has led to some parties getting the hump, but to be honest, that is their problem, not mine and perhaps I should feel sorry for them.
It is true that this has spread to dogs too. The animal and I will share a private duet of understanding, a tune unique to us enhanced by the pressure of a wet nose and soft whistle.
Not a single day passes that I don’t count my blessings for this gift, which I hope will stay with me forever.
