On to this weekend’s challenge, which will be judged by the community. The trickiness of this past week’s prompt has us thinking about the various ways we use words. This weekend we want you to write a 33-word response using the name of an animal as a verb. Some examples are: to dog, to snake, to bear, to duck. . .you get the idea. Write about anything you want and use whichever verb tense you need, but give us an animal as a verb in there somewhere. Let’s see if we can discover new things by looking from a different perspective.
My entry, a conversation between friends (And yea, I realize that last line doesn’t use wolf and sheep as a verb. Rest is pretty cool though) :
“She’s foxy trying to dig for info like that.”
“Yes, but that’s her cross to bear.”
“Wonder what she’s trying to ferret out of him?”
“Who knows? Such a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
