This weeks word prompt is:
crashing, valve, spotlight, postage, resonate and spastic
branded, organic, bargain, desperate, amplify and blase
"You seem so blase about the way this store has amplified the prices on the branded organic produce. I'd have to be desperate before I paid such a price."
"Well," Ann responded, "When you consider the health benefits they're a bargain at any price."
"Oh, come on." Jill groaned. "You can't be serious. Look at these turnips they've turned their high voltage spotlight on. They are the size of a postage stamp. There is no way this can resonate with you as a 'good deal'. You'd need a bushel of them to make one meal and look at the blight on some of these."
Ann was fast losing patience with her friend. Just then the valve on the produce sprayer came loose and the whole pipe assembly crashed down spraying Jill with cold water and putting an end to her spastic tirade as she spluttered and gasped from the shock.
Ann smiled sweetly and continued her shopping in peace and quiet. Avenged by the vegetables.
I didn't fare so well with 'lavender lies'
In that day
of citrus skies
he told me his stories
and lavender lies.
