42 Words #7

Hi All,

Well this week we are on lucky 7 thanks to Rhen and I think that this one could go a number of ways but before we have the big reveal lets see where we ventured in the ALTERNATE REALITIES realm.

Thanks to all who took the time to participate and I must admit people took many different turns on this theme which was highly appropriate in the circumstances.

Teresa from The Haunted Wordsmith

Charles from Potatoes and the Promise of More Potatoes

Dave from MMA Storytime

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Rugby43 from The Bag Lady

Rhen from Cobbled Contemplations

So, what sits at Lucky 7, well this might be a bit of a surprise but its …


Now this is one broad theme, you can go in so many directions its isn’t funny but for those who might be perplexed the official definition of a dame is as follows:

  1. The official title of a female member of the Order of the British Empire, equivalent to that of a knight.
  2. The official title of the wife of a knight or baronet.
  3. A form of address to any woman of rank or authority.
  4. A matronly woman of advanced age; matron.
  5. A term used to refer to a woman:Some dame cut me off and almost caused an accident.
  6. Ecclesiasticala title of a nun in certain orders.
  7. A mistress of a dame-school.

So you decide where you want to head but remember you only have 42 words.

As always I am on the hunt for next weeks topic, so feel free to pick a number, so we can continue the fun.

8 9 10 GONE 12 13 14
15 16 17 GONE 19 20 21
GONE 23 24 25 26 27 GONE
29 30 31 32 GONE 34 35
36 37 38 39 40 41 42

Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:

Sometimes notoriety is its own calling card

Miss Patty was a hell of a dame, with more spunk than the sputnik.

I recall when the thugs descended on her bar, they wanted protection money.

She sent the first flying with a fabulous right hook.

No one fooled with her.


PS Don’t forget to pingback.
