A Housewife's Revenge

BAM!
BANG!
                                                            Pillow
SCREECH!
                                            Jammed over an aching head,
CLANG!
                                             Another hungover husband
CLATTER!
                                                   Hides upstairs and
THUD!
                                                    Painfully endures
CLANK!
                                                  A perpetual penance
SCREECH!
                                            For a night out with the boys.
THUMP!





 On to the weekend challenge.  This weekend we want you to give us 33 words (exactly) that include among them at least one example of onomatopoeia.  When looking for a good page to link to in order to help describe the device, we stumbled upon our very own Apoplectic Apostrophes' post on literary devices.  Check it out if you need help remembering how onomatopoeia work.

  1. Hahaha! I've been that person. Obviously not the husband but the one with a hangover hiding upstairs.

  12. LOL...I am laughing because it's funny. The word choices were perfect for this.

    (But I am much too empathetic (having had my own hangovers) to punish my overindulged husband. ;) Mostly out of fear that fair is fair. ;)

    what a fun 33 words!
