Wordplay Thursday #101

Wordplay Thursday

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

Here’s a writing prompt for you. It’s a simple fill-in-the-blank. You can use one word or several. Feel free to get as crazy, genre-appropriate, or as imaginative as you want. The point is to get the creative juices flowing. And it’s a good thing to dig deeper, so don’t stop at the first idea that hits you. Try coming up with at least five things.

“I love you like _____ loves _____.”

I’ll give you an example to get you started:

“I love you like Billy Graham loves Jesus.”

I’d love to hear what you come up with, so please share in the comments. Oh, and please keep your posts below an R-rating. It’s a family show, after all!

And thanks to Andrew Cavanagh, Dionne Kumpe, Tommy Kib, Ethan Fogus, Ken Matthiesen, Sharon Mason Palmer, Janet Goodman, Bobby Pizazz, Brek, Mark Johnson, Bill Soprano, Buddy Lewis and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #100 (read it here)! Great job!
