USE YOUR WORDS - August 2015


Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them. 

I’m using: 
Surreal ~ shoddy ~ succumb ~ satiate ~ sorrowful

They were submitted by: Angrivated Mom

So I have to admit a little something here before I get started. I totally thought I had another week. YILES!!!! Not sure how I got all mixed up and confused. Sooo... this may not go as well as it could/should have. 

This is the story of the 5 Ss at work. 

Surreal (S number 1) was always in the clouds. He was a dreamer. The other Ss had a hard time getting him to deal with reality. It was a very difficult thing to put up with. Some of his ideas were definitely out there. 

Shoddy (S number 2) was a lazy bum. He was always getting in trouble at work for not giving his best. The other Ss were getting sick and tired of him! Why won't someone fire him????

Succumb (S number 3) was always sick!! She seemed to catch every single bug that went around. The other Ss were forever buying her hand sanitizer and orange juice. She swore she took her vitamins but the other weren't too sure about that. 

Satiate (S number 4) was always happy. She never seemed to have a single problem! She always working toward helping the other Ss in whatever way she could. 

Sorrowful (S number 5) was the complete opposite of Satiate. She was always depressed. Satiate tried being her friend but Sorrowful couldn't seem to see past her tears and heartbreak.
