Wordplay Thursday #103

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.

“She gives her baby kisses like _____ give(s) _____.”

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

“She gives her baby kisses like clouds give rain.”

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 Ken Matthiessen, Tommy Kib, Buddy Lewis, Barney Coulter, David Michael, Linda Wilson, Jim, Kim Kondrashoff, Joe Slyzelia, Debbie Convoy, Linda Keser and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #102 (read it here)! Great job!
