Opposing Forces – Saturday Mix, 15 January 2022

Sarah is our hostess for the Saturday Mix challenges, You can find out more and join in here

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:

– spend and save

– senior and junior

Funny how this week’s SoCS was about ‘a rainy day’ and I wrote about saving.
It soon became habit to save at least a third of our income rather than spend it, though one month I’d had enough of scrimping and saved nothing! Come next payday, I cried because I had nothing to show for it, and could not tell you, even now, where that money had gone.

I sometimes wonder if people lack imagination when it comes to naming their offspring. I have seen II or even III after names, but when for example Dad is referred to as John Senior and little Johnny as Junior, I think of Sean Connery referring to Indie as Junior in The Last Crusade.

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.

    I guess having kids in TX the name Junior was just sickening
