Words For Wednesday

Words for Wednesday is a writing prompt designed to fire up our creative juices and get us writing.  The words can be spun together to create a piece or just used as inspiration.  Write fact or fiction, prose or poetry, or simply a stream of thoughts generated by the words.
There are no rules (that's the best part).  Use some, all or none of the words on any day of the week you like.   It really doesn't matter as long as you enjoy the process.  Just always let us know if you are posting your piece on your blog so we can all drop in and visit.

Here is this weeks prompt:

hornet, hairnet, hover, proximity, clothesline, scent
and/or
chilling, drench, dance, damaged, horrifying, chemical
or you could use this phrase,
DEPLOYED DESTRUCTION

  1. The hornet hovering in close proximity to the clothesline adjusted his hairnet before following the scent of lavender which would lead him home.

    1. I really like lavender. Less fond of hornets. I hope his home is a long way away.

    2. I could do nothing less myself than have hornets in the hairnet. LOL

  2. No guardian angel hovers over me. She is mourning the death of all my feminist principles.
    If only there was an antidote. A simple chemical drench that every young woman (and her mother) could be run through at the first mention of impending nuptials and before close proximity of THE day fills the air with the scent of panic.

    Just call me a hypocrite. Dancing towards my doom in a pouffy white dress (despite my 'damaged' goods status). A simple wedding I said. It is about us, not about anyone else. And then the Bridezilla hornet stung me. Chilling but true. We are going to have a huge garden wedding. Hundreds of guests. Family. Friends. And acquaintances to make up the numbers. The kitchen is being remodelled so the professional chefs can work their magic. Hairnet dispensers on the walls. Chopping boards. Knives, and more knives. Gold-trimmed crockery. Glittering glasswear.
    The bridal waltz means the clothesline has to go. The day has to be perfect. The weather has to be perfect. The food has to be perfect. The music has to be perfect. The flowers have to be perfect. EVERYTHING has to be perfect. A symbol of our lives to come.

    Wait! What am I saying? I want our lives to be stressed, expensive and crowded? Let's elope. Now. And honeymoon far, far away from this.

    1. Perfect weddings do not guarantee perfect marriages..........simple is best.

    2. Excellent job E.C. You definitely took some valuable time concocting this tale with talented effort.

  3. That sounds like the wedding from hell, EC.
    I honestly don't know how women can put themselves through all that effort just for one day.
    Even worse when it's an 'at home' wedding that means remodelling and rearranging the garden.
    All in the name of perfection when common sense tells us perfection is unattainable.

  4. I can't write anything like this. Rules and regulations don't appeal to me. They never have. It's very military

    1. Stick with us Treey.....there are many different takes on the words.....so far, judging by the above, none of them military.

  5. My usage of the words this week are topical to Aussie Rugby League fans...particularly those who enjoy the annual best of three games State of Origin series.

    "The Mighty Maroons, the Queensland State of Origin Rugby League team were DEPLOYED DESTRUCTION personified in the 2017 series. Once again, The Blues, the New South Wales team couldn’t come within close PROXIMITY to The Maroons. They never copped a SCENT of winning, perhaps only.

    Like a HORNET- and I mean a hornet of the jet aircraft kind - Billy Slater moved at speed. Once the ball was in his hands he was unstoppable. The only thing opposing players could do was DANCE fruitlessly around him as he left them in his wake.

    The Queensland team’s defence wasn’t DAMAGED in any way. The Blues were hung out to dry on the Origin CLOTHESLINE once again.

    The football oval has had a lot of traffic on it over the past couple of weeks, but those responsible for bringing to back to peak condition used not one CHEMICAL in the pre-match preparation. Fortunately, it had a brief DRENCH of rain upon it a few days ago, and none after that, allowing time for the moisture to sink into the ground. A fine mesh, like a giant HAIRNET had been spread over the field for the last 24 hours before tonight’s decider. Even a HOVERcraft was used to spread organic fertiliser over the grass to have the field ready in time for the final game of the series.

    It would have been HORRIFYING, not only for the players, but for the fans, too, if the field hadn’t been in top condition.

    There was not a CHILLING moment of doubt throughout the game. From the moment the Queensland players set foot on the football oval."

    4. Lee: I know more than one person who shares your passion for the State of Origin series.

    5. Hi EC....State of Origin sure stirs up one's loyalty. It's a terrific series. :)

      I always watch the three games, and being a proud Queenslander, born and bred I'm a Maroons' supporter, of course. Queensland has won 11 Origin series out of the last 12 years. They're always brilliant games. They are the only matches I watch other than the Grand Final...and I only watch the Grand Finals if any of my three favourite teams have made the final...The Broncos, Cowboys or Storm. If they aren't there for the big one, I can't be bothered watching.

  8. Great story Lee. I'm not a footy fan at all, but neighbour P is. When she is watching on her TV, the stamping and cheering goes on for the whole match.
    I can just imagine Billy Slater buzzing like a hornet across the field while others dance around trying for any opportunity to get that ball.

    1. Thanks, River. :)

      I only watch the Rugby League State of Origin series (three games in the series)...and the Grand Finals if any of my favourite three teams are playing in the final. Other than those instances, I don't watch the weekend games. And I never watch AFL, Rugby Union or Soccer. I'm not a fan of any of the latter. I do, just out of a tradition that started many years, was the Super Bowl every year. My ex got me into it. He'd lived and worked in the States for nigh on a decade and explained the game to me. (I still don't understand it...but I do watch the Super Bowl...it's a major event).
