Saturday Mix – Same Same But Different, 9 September 2017

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. produce
  2. puncture
  3. smile
  4. young
  5. difficult

When Sarah said not to use certain words but to expand my knowledge of the English language I found it hard to get my head around it. I was to create a composition that was to be littered with challenging words that would prick my imagination and hopefully put a grin on her face.

It was clear to me that Sarah was of a different generation to me, she had been born at a time of computers and all that and obviously knew nothing of the limitations of we older folk when it came to accessing words of a gruelling if not onerous disposition. I am not suggesting in any way a degree of immaturity on her part but more so a generational gap.

And so, I am to set forth on this challenge, my ready thesaurus at my side, my mind beaming with expectation as I undertake this not so burdensome task to create a piece she will look upon as befitting her set task.

I am suddenly feeling as if in school again, and wanting as I always did to please the teacher I shall do all I can to not rupture the relationship between teacher and pupil thus assembling my words in some logical and hopefully coherent form.

  2. Lorraine says:

    Well done. Glad Sarah gave you an A+. Being of your generation, I might have marked it an A-. Grinning.

  3. Another great take on the prompt. I love your approach, very creative.
