Saturday Mix — Lorraine 01.04.17


Welcome to a April 1st edition of the Saturday Mix, hosted by Lorraine. There are various traditions/histories of playing practical jokes and perpetrating hoaxes on the first day of April. This week, the challenges form around the theme of all things foolish. You can do any or all of the challenges presented.

Tell me silly, foolish tale in 25 to 200 words. By all means, play a trick on me and the reader. Or tell me I’m a fool in 140 characters – I find this online character counter helpful when participating in Kat’s Twittering Tales. (Of course, you can do both!)


Using a poetic device from the folks at D’verse, let’s explore the “Quadrille – . . . our 44 word count challenge based on a definition of a given word.” In this case, the word is fool – as a noun or verb – and must appear in the body of the poem.

There is nothing inherently silly in the shadorma, a six line stanza with the beat of 3/5/3/3/7/5.  A shadorma can be one or multiple stanzas. This week, be inspired by April Fools Day, things foolish, or fools.
