Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 24 July 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:
horse – animal
hoarse – lack of voice
stationery – pen, paper, envelope etc.
stationary – still, unmoving
The lazy filing clerk
The pile of paperwork wasn’t going anywhere, so one could say it was stationary stationery.
How to get out of jail with a play on words (not an original story though):
First clap your hands until they are a little sore, then use the saw to cut the leg of your cot in half. Two halves make a whole, so you yell through the hole until you get a little hoarse, then jump through the hole onto the horse and ride away.
(or something like that………… yes I know, I’m leaving now)
