47.8



Blogophilia Week 47.8 Topic:

“Whitewashing the Truth”

Bonus Points:

Hard, 2 points:

There, Their, and They’re – Correctly use two, don’t use the third at all.

Hard, 1 point:

Include Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King

Robert Kennedy—

“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why… I dream of things that never were and ask why not?”

November 20, 1925—June 6, 1968

Martin Luther King Jr
January 15, 1929—April 4, 1968

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

Whitewashing—

Whitewash—n.

1. A solution of lime and water or of whiting, size, and water, used for painting walls white.

Verb—
1. Paint (A wall, building, or room) with whitewash.
2. Defeat (an opponent), keeping them from scoring.

I am trying to rack my brain here as to what to write. I could whitewash the truth and tell you I’m on an adventure, searching for the lost sea unicorn. No, wait! It’s whitewashing the truth. Whitewashing the truth. I’m not even getting the prompts right.

There’s Martin Luther King Jr., but no Martin Luther King to look up. There’s a Martin Luther.

To remember the difference between there and their; I like to think there goes with here. It’s here and there. It’s neither here nor there.

Their just belongs to someone. Is this towel yours? No it’s theirs; the couple sitting next to us!

Like I said, I am totally sucking at this week’s prompts….I don’t know why I’m stumbling, but I am….

I think Lynn submitted the picture…And I have no idea with the rest. To tell the truth, every time I hear whitewash, I think of Tom Sawyer…

    1. Thank you. Some days it looks like poetry, other days it looks like short story or storytelling. And this week was just completely random! LOL!

  9. This week's topic and prompts were most definitely quite the challenge. I'm with you -- Tom Sawyer is always the first thing that the term "whitewash" always brings to my mind too.
