Opposing Forces – Saturday Mix, 20 November 2021

Sarah is our hostess for the MLMM Saturday Mix.

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 20 November 2021!

This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of OPPOSITES. Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our words this week are:

– question and reply

– insult and compliment

My Dad encouraged me to always question something I didn’t understand. I must admit that some of the replies I got were somewhat unexpected!

My first MIL was OK, but any compliment was usually double sided, and could have been taken as an insult. For example, I baked a cake and while she was tucking into a generous slice, she said
‘This really isn’t bad at all………..’ then spoiled it by adding ‘seeing as you made it!’

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.
