The idea is, every week Raven (View From Raven's Nest) gives you between 8 and 10 words/phrases and you have to create a small but coherent paragraph using every one of them and the same with the mini challenge. You can do either, both or a megawordzzle using all the words, or even all three, it's up to you, you can post them on your blog or email them to Raven. If you join in go to Raven's and put your name on the Mr. Linky so other participants can come visit you.
Here's my efforts complete with my doodles.
Mini Challenge: prenuptial agreement, The purple cow just hated the orange cat, potato chips, sari, Hammer and nails
It appeared that the purple cow (Alfie’s pet name for Mary) just hated the orange cat (Mary’s pet name for Alfie), and Mary even insisted on a prenuptial agreement before they got married. At the wedding they were arguing about anything and everything; Mary’s sari, the lack of potato chips on the buffet and the fact that Alfie didn’t know how to use a hammer and nails. Everyone thought it was a marriage of convenience but they were wrong.
Reeta and Ali met in a little café when she was sheltering from a sudden rainstorm she’d been caught in and was trying to drip dry. Ali served her a Turkish coffee and some potato chips and wanted to know if she was on holiday and why she was wearing a sari. Reeta explained she was in a movie about a coffin maker, being filmed there by her movie mogul uncle.
Ali was quite taken with Reeta, she was definitely a hundred percent better than Frankenstein’s sister, a benchmark he and his friends judged girls by. In fact the moment Ali saw her he felt as horny as a toad and proceeded to chat her up.
At first Reeta was wary, “beware Greeks baring gifts” (or in this case Turks) her mother always said, but in the six months it took to film Reeta threw caution to the wind and when it was finished she and Ali were totally in love.
Ali moved to America with Reeta and was amazed how famous she was and was bewitched by her lifestyle. She took him to the premier of the film in a stretch limo, so when there was a traffic gridlock they relaxed in luxury sampling the bar. He’d never been in such a luxurious car, the cars at home were so old they were full of holes like a cheese grater, understandably he was getting used to the good life and didn’t want to give it up.
Twelve months later they were planning their wedding, Ali’s family were insisting it happen in Turkey, as they wanted a traditional wedding. Reeta didn’t have a problem with this but she and her mother-in-law to be, Neriman, didn’t get on at all. They were so different it was a case of ‘the purple cow just hated the orange cat’, every time they got together they argued, going at it hammer and nails. Since Neriman got wind that Reeta was rich she insisted on her drawing up a prenuptial agreement before the wedding, so that Ali would be ‘taken care of’ should the marriage not last. Reeta agreed but what the greedy old bag didn’t know was Reeta didn’t actually own anything, her uncle paid for everything!
