42 Words- Mystery

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words

MYSTERY

Mystery?  What mystery?  Well the choice is yours.  You can have the saga of the missing toilet roll, you could have the mystery of life, the universe and everything but of course the same limit remains, 42 words and that’s it folks.

➰➰➰➰➰

I love mystery

Reading whodunnits, crime fiction murder mysteries

Or trying to solve everyday mysteries at home

Who trashed the newspaper or who ate the leftover dessert from last night

I investigate these riddles seldom finding the culprits but having fun nonetheless

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words

CRIME

There’s crime a foot this week on 42 words and you’re the one in charge of wrapping it up – in 42 words.  What type of crime, where, when, how, why?  I don’t know but I suspect we will have a few suspects to consider.  So jump to it folks and get the hounds on the trail for this is the second to last week and we need to find our criminal.

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

Caught red handed

Guilty as charged

But they were incompetent

Could not prove the crimes against him

Now he’s free to spew his words of hate once again

Already planning another assault on humanity

Can no one stop his crimes against humanity

42 Words- Trapped

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words

TRAPPED

Trapped where? Trapped by what?  Trapped when?  Trapped how?  Trapped why?  So many questions, so many options, and so few words.  42 to be precise, so I implore you to not take a single one in vain.

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

Trapped in my fear

Unable to go ahead or back

It’s always drummed into my mind

Failure is not an option, you must always succeed

I want to throw away these expectations of the society

Break these chains that hold me trapped

She woke up from her sleep, and realized that she was in a different place. Everything looked different and strange.

Where am I? Or when is now? She thought.

How long had she slept this time, a few centuries, maybe?

New record?

SPORTS

Wow, what an immense topic, its bigger than the olympic stadium, its bigger than the one that got away, it’s bigger than armchair wrestling at the local nursing home.

You can go anywhere you like with this one, playing a sport, watching a sport, inventing a sport, being a good sport, sporting a new beard, sports cars,  crocheting your team’s sports beanies, or even your local sports day.  You can catch the ball, toss down the bails and score the home run but remember there is a very specific limit here … 42 words and then your time is up.

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

I loved playing cricket. One day, I badly twisted and broke a meniscus in my right knee. It needed a couple of surgeries to fix. Now, I watch cricket at home, in front of a tv. No more playing on the field.

42 Words- Identity

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words

IDENTITY

So to good old google identity is defined as …

Identity is the qualities, beliefs, personality, looks and/or expressions that make a person (self-identity as emphasized in psychology) or group (collective identity as pre-eminent in sociology). One can regard the awareness and the categorizing of identity as positive or as destructive.

~*~*~*~

Witness protection

New identity created

A whole new life crafted

In a meager few days, encompassing years

It would be so hard to start all over again

But it was all done to uphold truth and justice

I’m starting a new life!

42 Words- War

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words

WAR

Now I don’t want to give you any preconceived notions on where to take this prompt for there are a lot of different wars in this world.  Perhaps its the war on the back yard grass, perhaps its the war with the second cousin who scoffs all the drinks, perhaps its the war on your dwindling self confidence, perhaps its Errol Flynn’s war on the woman in Hollywood, perhaps its another type all together.

“Idiots!”

She was fuming.

This isn’t the way to do it, Julia thought.

A stickler for grammar, she couldn’t understand why this new generation couldn’t spell or write properly. 4u and gr8 weren’t words in her vocabulary.

It will be war now!

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words

our theme for this week …

SIBLINGS

Siblings, options a plenty with this topic.  Are they at war, are they in cahoots, are they social distancing and actually missing each other or are they simply good naturedly bickering as all siblings should.

➰➰➰➰➰➰ 50

I miss you, brother!

There was a time that we were best friends. Now we hardly ever talk to each other. It’s not that we are estranged, it’s just that we both are too busy with our lives.

I hope you’d call!

Nothing could save them now.

Jollie tried to calm her wildly beating heart and shaking hands.

Thick black smoke was obscuring her sight and the stench was enough to make her gag.

The dinner was burned, and the guests were due any moment.

It was an apocalypse!
