Same, Same, But Different – Saturday Mix, 11 June 2022

Sarah is our host for the Saturday Mix challenges.
This week we are diving into the depths of our thesaurus and exploring the world of synonyms.

Same Same But Different
Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right, you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.
Your words are:

  1. run
  2. yell
  3. blue
  4. wrap
  5. smoke

Here’s my offering:

Damn. I had a ladder in my tights but it was no good shouting at the dog as it wasn’t her fault.
Feeling a little down about it and not having another pair, I tied a generously large scarf round my hips which hung past my knees to cover it. Hopefully my chances of the new job wouldn’t go up in flames.


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.

    Hehe! I remember those days! I went on a date and got a run in my stockings – lucky I had a bottle of finger nail polish in my purse… It kept the run from extending from above my hem to below! Of course taking off the stockings found that I’d lacquered them to my leg!!!

    Love it, I hope she got the job
