Double Take – Saturday Mix, 28 May 2022

Sarah is our lovely hostess for the Saturday Mix challenges. Click here to find out more and how to join in.
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:
paced – measured footsteps
paste– glue
rap – strong knock
wrap– to encase

Stan paced the waiting room anxiously. How much longer?
A sharp rap on the window attracted his attention. The nurse came in to say his Mum had given birth to a beautiful little girl and he was now allowed to go in.
There was no need for Stan to paste a smile on his face when he saw his baby sister. He just wanted to wrap her in his arms and protect her forever.


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.
