Saturday Mix – Double Take, 30 September 2017

This week’s homophones: Double Take: straight – not crooked straitnarrow waterway  discussed – talked about disgustsickening

Madam Claire made it clear that the only to ensure success in my new venture was to stick to the straight and narrow.

That meant sailing through the treacherous Straits of Doom towards the Straight Neck whereupon the Straits would narrow just enough to allow me entry to the treasure trove she assured me was awaiting.

We discussed the possibilities of failure, but she was instantly disgusted by my negative attitude and suggested such an attitude would find me straight down the gurgler.

The gurgler was a geological phenomenon in the middle of the Straits designed to give you the most disgusting of experiences by turning your ship into a mush words failed to describe.

After much discussion and preparation, it was decided I would set sail through the Straits on the next high tide to ensure my safe passage.

So, I made moves to get straight to it.

    Hmmm. The gurgler . . . a new geographic phenomena to me. Bermuda Trianglish? But then, I can’t keep the straits straight.

    A whirlpool of destruction where one is already aware of the imminent danger! A high risk attempt surely!
