Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/14/18 Prompt: HIDE

Hide is not mentioned in this song, but I think it is implied. It is about a secret smile reserved for one person therefore, that means it is hidden fro. Everyone else. It is by Semisonic.

Secret Smile
Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
So use it and prove it
Remove this whirling sadness
I’m losing I’m bluesing
But you can’t save me from madness
Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
So save me I’m waiting
I’m needing, hear me pleading
And soothe me, improve me
I’m grieving, I’m barely believing it now, now
When you are flying around and around the world
And I’m lying a lonely
I know there’s something sacred and free reserved
And received by me only
Songwriters: Dan Wilson

This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time

I’ve always loved fall, but in the past few years, I haven’t enjoyed it as much because I knew it was leading straight for the holidays, and I was boycotting them. This year, though, I’ve made a very concerted effort to change from a scrooge to an elf. Not that we’re quite there yet, but I did pick up a few fall decorations for the house today. I used to be all about decorating for every season and I’m hoping to get there eventually. For now, I will settle for a cute door sign, a table cloth and a fake pumpkin on my doorstep.

I was amazed last week at how many people got so excited about guessing the theme for this week. I didn’t think it would be all that hard, but it was a mystery until late on Sunday. If you’ve read through the comments, hopefully you’re prepared…

Words that speak volumes #6week stories

How many newspaper headlines and articles, say Grandmother or Grandfather. It is a lot less words than saying 65year old woman with two grown up daughters and 4 grandchildren. Yet is still tells you gender, gives an indication of age and tells you she is a Mother. Often it is used to emotively to suggest vulnerability.

Similarly Princess as six week stories for that prompt have shown, can imply femininity, status, power, diva like behaviour… Yet if you talk about princesses from yesterday which are you talking about if say:

Princess was not a Mother of a princess?

It could be any from toddler Princess Charlotte to Princess Anne who chose not to accept titles for her children.

Princess can imply youth and Grandmother age yet, both words can describe Grandmother Princess Anne.

Using words not typically associated can create extra layers for Princess was enjoying HIS birthday.


Words that reference literature can be used as shorthand for other words. During princess week, have had stories referencing Princess and the pea and Cinderella. Or if say forlorn Romeo – what do you assume he is sad about? The prompt for the coming week is superstition, words like black cat and thirteen are words in that context that can be used as short hand. If you can come up with a 6 week story for SUPERSTITION, pop over to Kirsty’s blog to submit it.
