Word Play Tuesday

Word Play Tuesday - The Second Tuesday of Each Month


For the uninitiated, Here's How Word Play works -

Today, and every second Tuesday of the month, we play with a chosen word or string of words. I make a choice, offer some uses, then invite you to comment below with a sentence using the word(s) we’re playing with. You can use one of my phrases and expand on it or make up a fresh sentence or paragraph from scratch, but the only rule is to use the monthly word(s).

When you comment, if you have a website or blogspot, be sure to include it along with your name, in case someone really likes what you've written and wants to visit you.

For June, let's play with triplets. I have two sets in mind. See if you can use some or all of them.

Here they are:

Do - action verb - Do what you want.
Dew - wet stuff on the grass - The dew made the grass slippery.
Due - adjective denoting owing - My library book is due.

To - preposition - I went to the gym.
Two - the number after one - Two heads are better than one.
Too - meaning also - I love ice cream too. 

Now it's your turn. Use the triplets however way you wish. It's okay to tie them in with one of your own books or something you've read, but not necessary.

  1. To write this in just two sentences is too hard. Yet I will do it, due to the dew of inspiration with which you have quenched my creative thirst.

  2. Due to two mornings of dew, it was too wet to do the mowing.

  3. She teetered at the top of the porch stairs and glared down at her husband. "Do not walk across the yard, you old coot. Due to last night's rain, the dew on the grass is slick as oil. You've already broken two ribs. Do you want a crippled leg, too?"

    Turning, she mumbled. "Old fool. Heaven knows why I love you so much."

  4. I "do the Dew," too, due to the two helpings of caffein in each can.

  5. The library book was due; she had an appointment at the doctor’s too. When the engine coughed and quit, there was nothing Lily could do but tuck her shoes under her arm--the overdue book too, and march the long miles to town through the dew-soaked fields chanting, “One, two. One two.” http://middlepassages-lcs.blogspot.com/

  6. Due to the great comments so far, I feel the urge to post one, too, or maybe I should do two.

  10. "To dew or not to dew," says the morning, contemplating a fresh new day that was due to be hot and sunny. "Two mornings, now, I've laced the world with the heavy dampness of dew. Should I do a dryer version this time, or soak down this one, too?"

  16. Riding to the shack, Jake saw Pete riding there too. Seeing Pete greeting Slim, who was already there, he raised his shotgun: 'Two heads are better than one,' he grinned, pulling the trigger.

  17. The dew is still wet on the grass. Too early to do any writing due to my sleep still in my eyes. Two hours later, when the sun has dried will be time enough to work.

  18. (naughty)

    Due to the light touches of his two fingers, she too was covered in dew and at a loss as to what to do.

    :P

    I couldn't help myself.
