This week’s words are:

    Odd being on the east coast and up early enough to be among the first posters here. I missed last week but managed to play this week. Thanks as always, bone!

    Hi Bone,
    I’ll be back with mine later. Just a quick thought about the Great WordPress Comment Eater. At times it doesn’t seem to like more than one link on a comment. Maybe that’s the problem.

  17. pia Says:

    Gautami It didn’t seem as if you had any problems. Though the man did appear like my mother’s nightmares.

    I found the words to be incredibly scary–and in my subconscious was thinking somebody with the screenname Bone should never give the word neck–fortunately that’s not what my post was about

    The whole thing was pre-planned.
    An itch that needed to be scratched.
    The fact that you will always love me, means nothing.
    It won’t hold my hand, or sit next to me, or kiss my neck.
    Pretty Average, really.
    Thanks, but I can do without.
