Match me if you can!

Time to Ponder yet again.  You know the drill... I post a prompt that has multiple meanings and we get see what you write! Add you post to the linky and wait for the magic!!
Today's word is MATCH  (you can always grab the prompt early by visiting the Pondering Page

I really owe credit for this prompt to Rory Bore at Time Out For Mom

A couple of weeks ago she wrote a riddle and two words came out of that - this weeks and next weeks.

When I think of match I often think about pairs of socks. How does the dryer swallow so many socks that then leave me with mis-matched singles?

I'm also conscious of making sure my clothes match my shoes - even though I have been noticing a growing trend of people wearing shoes as an accent - you know a color that does not even 'match' what they're wearing.

And then there are the kinds of match that make soul mates find each other (or not) -

And last, but certainly not least, there is this kind of match:

and they used to come in match books: (Don't see many of these around any more)

Anyone know why Match Box cars were given that name?  I'm thinking because they are the size of a matchbox.  

I'm looking forward to seeing your interpretation of this word.


  1. 'Match' is an excellent writing prompt, and I love this blog hop.

    1. Thanks Romi... and I always love reading your work

  2. Glad I gave some inspiration! :)
    I've got a neat thing planned for this prompt -- I just can't quite figure out how to make it work just yet. but hopefully by end of day!! I may have "met my match" in terms of technical ability though! LOL

    1. LOL.... I am sure you will conquer it!

    2. Will I finished creating my match game, but I couldn't figure out how to embed it in my post -- so I just left a link to it. :)

  3. Well of course when I think of match there is one kind that comes immediately to mind... so that's my story for Pondering this week, a bit of rumination about a subject close to my heart. :-) Thank you, Brenda, for this fun prompt each week! I was out for vacation last week, and I missed participating. I'm a little late with showing up today, but I wanted to join in!


Thanks for stopping by! Let me know you were here
