SoCS August 15/15 – ‘ay’ words


Congrats to Hope Floats for the winning badge, great design.

Words ending in ‘ay’

I say I say I say

But this is too hard Linda.

Which ‘ay’ word to choose when there are so many.

I pondered the task by looking at the alphabet and deciding there were so many ‘ay’ words that it would be fun to include them all but that would be a tad self indulgent.

So to allay all fears I thought I’d tell you a little about myself like when I went to the bay to ride my kayak out to the cay in the middle of the day.

There upon the cay I did make hay while the sun shone, with my gay brother and his friend Fay from Mowbray.

When we reached the shoreline Jay came running up to say that Tay and May were coming to dinner and could we help them find the way to our place.

Jay had rode across the bay with a load of fresh caught cray and dumped them at my feet which caused quite an affray I have to say.

In the midst of such consternation not an ‘ay’ word was uttered as tempers rose, nostrils flared, booted feet pounded upon the good earth.

The charge I must say was quite comical. Jay, May and Tay up against Fay, Way and Ray (he was just standing innocently by and got caught up in the affray)

It wasn’t long before the bay beckoned, the cay called and the day dawned and everyone was wet and cold and shivering.

Around the fire they all conceded their own silly behaviours and vowed that next week when Kay came to visit that they would all behave in the most cordilay they could.
