Take Seven 29th October

Welcome to Take Seven, a compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
Should you join in this week, just pingback to this post and leave a link to yours in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.

Please note, I am taking a hiatus from this for a while, though the daily challenge will continue as normal.

Our words were:
allow, fob, fond, hold, hose, hour, let, permit, possible, pot, pray, season, second, sell, sinister, sound, tiny, today, tomorrow, week, yesterday.
He put the multi purpose hose back in its holster when he realised the sinister overtones of the situation.
He could not allow it and continued to hold the fob concealed in his hand. He was not particularly fond of the guy, but the second he saw he was over the limit, he refused to sell him another drink, let alone permit him to drive.
That was the trouble with seasonal parties and Happy Hour. Staff looked forward to them for weeks, lived for today and tomorrow would be spent nursing a hangover. Many cursed the yesterday and their over indulgence.
Hopefully there was a tiny bit of sense left in his head, so he decided to sound him out, praying he would see reason and it would be possible to call him a cab. There was always an emergency pot behind the bar for such matters, and recipients replaced the funds used when they were sober and collected their car keys.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    An interesting look at life from another perspective!

    • A pub landlord I knew used to give free soft drinks to the designated driver (usually me actually), but anyone he deemed over the limit would be relieved of their car keys and sent home in a taxi. The nice thing was that no-one took offense.
