Double Take – Saturday Mix, 16 October 2021

Sarah is our hostess for the Saturday Mix.
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:

aural – of hearing
oral – of mouth


aye – affirmative
– oneself
eye – ocular organ

The aural acoustics of the hall were terrific for their drama presentation. If only the male lead’s oral hygiene was as impressive.
The women felt nauseous whenever he spoke to them so demanded to see the casting director. It was put to a vote and the ayes carried it so he was out on his rump. Mind you, it could have been something to do with the female lead having her eye on someone else which is how I was offered the part.

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.
