Saturday Mix – Same Same But Different, 4 November 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. odd
  2. fight
  3. start
  4. weak
  5. tired

It was a most peculiar day, surrounded by the strangest of people.

At first, I was fearful of some confrontation, as there was a rumour of a past brawl,

But from the beginning, a peace pervaded the room and the whole evening kicked off satisfactorily.

A feeble attempt was made to reconcile but was met with an even more puny response

So, in the end, fatigued by the whole trauma of the meeting we were all too exhausted to be bothered.

So, home we went, glad to be rid of such eccentric types

Thankful all and any struggle of a physical nature had been avoided.

A new week was about to commence, we were glad of that,

Our ailing need to compensate put momentarily behind us

Not wishing to burn ourselves out, we buried ourselves in work.
