Wordplay Thursday #109

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.

“His alibi was as _____ as _____.”

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

“His alibi was as flimsy as wet cardboard.”

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 Mark Johnson, Theresa, Tommy Kib, Debbie Davidson, Ken Matthiesen, Mike Baker, Nila, Jeff Green, Debbie Convoy, Nick S., Linda Keser, Joe Sly, Kim Kondrashoff, Carol Katterjohn and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #108 (read it here)! Great job!
