Words for Wednesday



On Wednesdays, Elephant’s Child has been putting up a selection of six (or twelve) words which is called “Words for Wednesday”.
She had taken over this meme from Delores, who is gradually retiring from the blogging world.
This month the meme continues here, at Drifting Through Life

Essentially the aim is to encourage us to write.  
Each week we are given a choice of prompts: which can be words, phrases, music or an image.   What we do with those prompts is up to us:  a short story, prose, a song, a poem, or treating them with ignore...

Some of us put our creation in comments on the post, and others post on their own blog.  I would really like it if as many people as possible joined into this fun meme.  If you are posting on your own blog - let me know so that I, and other participants, can come along and applaud.
 
I’m hopeless at poetry so I always do a story.

It’s a fun challenge…why not join in?

This week's words are:

1. over                                   and/or:             1. scrambled
2. club                                                            2. playful
3. morning                                                     3. adding
4. grass                                                         4. regenerated
5. dead                                                          5. should
6. front                                                           6. tank

Have fun :) use one list, or both, or a mix.

  1. I see my listed words have been walking around. Word 4 on list 2 is regenerated, which has taken itself to list 1, but you all worked that out, right?

    I am soooo over helpful advice, delivered by people who are older than dirt and should have been put out to grass long ago. Or perhaps under the grass. I am sure that some of them are dead and just haven't noticed yet. Instead they just have to keep adding their five cents worth to things they know nothing about.
    'A good night's sleep will have you feeling regenerated, and will put energy in your tank. Mornings are the best time of day'.
    Their brains are scrambled. Mornings are something which should be approached carefully and slowly. At the crack of noon or thereabouts. It is when I front up to a club, well after dark, that I feel playful and inspired. Were they ever young or where they born like that?

  3. This is my effort for this week....

    "Nick Kyrgios’ disrespectful, childish behaviour on the GRASS courts of Wimbledon in FRONT of a world audience wasn’t PLAYFUL, in my opinion. It was an insult to the CLUB; it was insulting to tennis fans all OVER.

    I’ve been watching the competition into the early MORNING hours, which has been ADDING to my feelings of tiredness. To watch a player willfully TANK in no way REGENERATED my spirits.

    Late last night I SCRAMBLED for a hot mug of Milo thinking it SHOULD revive me enough to last through the rest of the matches.

    All these late nights drifting into the wee small hours have been making me feel a bit like the walking DEAD!"

    1. I think we forget just how young he is. And expect quite a lot from him, and from too many other sporting stars. Mind you, bad manners should never be condoned...

    2. He's 20...others are playing at a similar age and younger, in all sports...and have done so through the years. Thanasi Kokinakis is one of our youngsters...he doesn't behave that way. Last year I was fan of Kyrgios...but he's lost me with his half-smart attitude and disrespect. I don't care who they are...there is no excuse for the type of behaviour he carried on with during his appearances at Wimbledon this year. He was an embarrassment to himself, to his family, to his sport and to the country he represents. It's his choice to play on the world stage. No one is forcing him. That's just my opinion. I don't like brats - of any age. lol

  4. We lost watching Wimbledon this year; I don't know where the month went.
    With your interesting words, I must give thought. Put post up on Friday?

  5. Elephant's Child; "some are dead and haven't noticed yet" that made me laugh. I agree with her(?) that mornings should be approached slowly. Very slowly if my creaky old back has any say in the matter. Very well done!

    Lee; a good and true story, did the Milo help? It's truly a shame when promising players, (any players really) display such a childish lack of respect for themselves and others.

    Susan Kane; Friday is fine; any day you choose is fine. I don't stay up watching tennis or any other sport, so I've lost no time there.

  6. Hey River,

    As for me, I just watch what transpires with the words. I shall continue to use the excuse that I'm way too tired and also, it wouldn't be fair on the rest of you.

    Have fun and excellent responses so far.

    Gary

  7. kahanie; thanks for dropping in. I'd like to see what you do with the words one day. Truth, fiction, fantasy, go for it.

  8. The grass would be regenerated on the oval taking about 3 to 5 weeks to grow. It was most likely done early in a morning with more seed added as necessary. The club would benefit from such luscious grass, therefore the team would be more playful and no doubt showing off in front of the crowd. I presume it would be well watered from a tank....

    There you are, I had a go :)

  9. whiteangel; well done. I do like the thought of a luscious green lawn, but not at all sure I'd want team sports played on it.
