Sarah is our host for the MLMM Saturday Mix challenges.
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:
real – authentic
reel– armature for winding
sale – act of selling
sail– water travel by wind
Here’s my effort:
‘I tell you, this time it’s the real thing!’
‘Janice, every time you see a guy more than once it’s ‘the real thing’ for you.
Why are you in such a hurry? Just enjoy each other’s company and see where it leads.’
‘Pfft. It’s alright for you Audrey. You’ve never been short of boyfriends and it’s second nature for you to just ‘reel ’em in’.’
The sale of their house was a nightmare. It came as a great relief when they could just sail off into the sunset and not have to worry about gardens, fences, mortgages and neighbours! The boating life was an adventure to be had.
