Saturday Mix – Same Same But Different, 7 October 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. lucky
  2. walk
  3. old
  4. dry
  5. cook

It was fortunate there was no doubt. We were blessed with a mother who could stroll into any room with a stove in it and after a wander through any recipe book could prepare a meal to have you drooling. She had that gift to rustle up a meal in the time it might take others to just think about it.

Mum was a bit ancient there was no argument about it. Whilst she wasn’t what you’d consider elderly she was a bit long in the tooth and at times looked it.

Her skin was pretty bone hard from the tough life she led out in the sun all those years back on the farm. But she was always pointing out to us how it important we didn’t become dehydrated from staying out in the sun too long.

Just then she called to us to come in as she’d prepared a baked dinner one we knew we’d salivate over. We knew we were advantaged in life with a mother such as ours. We also knew that in time she would become senile as it ran in the family but we’d love her all the same. Dinner with mum was a privilege as no matter how parched we might have been she always had plenty of her special brew on hand.

Time to dig in.
