station

Jeeves never questioned his station in life; one ordained from the moment he was christened with the knid of name that made it superflouous to argue whether he would ever follow his father and become Mr. Wooster’s personal gentleman’s gentleman.

A used tea bag isn’t lightly discarded by the discerning gardener.

patience

The acolyte looked up from his prayer book without a gleam of understanding in his dark eyes. “patience” my son, cautioned his elderly tutor.

major

Ground control to Major Tom…commencing countdown, engines on. Check ignition, and may God’s speed be with you.

powder

Nothing smells quite like the odour of frshly ground ginger, a rich golden powder that can spice a meal to perfection…or ruon it with a careless flick of the wrist.

bamboo

I stood by the desk, fearfully a-tremble with anticipation of the cane descending with snake-swift speed to strike! once upon the palm of my outstretched hand. Ouch! The headteacher, Mr. Dick smiled fiendishly. “That’ll learn yer, won’t it?” I agreed wholeheartedly. It learned me to not get caught out of class, again.

shift

A large yawn cracked the coal-black face of Dai, the driver. It had been a long night and his shift at the yard still had another hour to run. “Not to worry,” he thought. “Wife will have a hot bowl of soup ready on the table when i get home, so she will.”

stack

The man looked furtively over the horn-rimmed edge of his polaroids and smirked. The stack of chips gleamed dully in the smoky light and his opponent knew the game was up: Aces high, winner takes all.

needle

Needlenose was his nickname, for one very obvious reason: it was long and thin. It defined him as a person and made his job seem predestined. He was a tailor.

spotlight

A spotlight shone directly into the eyes of the kangaroo: Bang! The rfile shot rang out with sudden finality.

stripes

G-faster stripes ran along the side of the grey morris minor like a streak of irony.

windmill

The old windmill creaked and groaned in the grip of early winter winds, determined to hold fast to the spot the millers’ sons hed inherited from their father and nine generations before him.

overflowing

The rain was overflowing the gutter pipes and helter-skeltering down the drains with unrestrained glee, unfettered by wind and freed from the dense blanket of grey cloud that more resembled a teenagers laundry basket than the tranquil skies of the early morning, forgotten, now, in a deluge of unremitting weather…

eternal

The Eternal City has a long and bloody history. From the Caesers to Mussolini, Romans have endured much in their subservience to imperial power; whimsical and abstract, a legal fiction backed by political deviance and an unforgiving military power.

weird

It was weird. The hippo took another look along the riverbank and blinked. There it went again. A flashing red light, fading to orange, zooming one way then another at dizzying speed. What could it be? thought he.

stem

The long stem of his pipe jutted firmly between his cracked, yellowed teeth, a smile strecthing his lips wider than the bowl which reeked of the same fetid odour; a rank mixture of old beer, sweat and applewood.

tray

A waiter carried the tea tray with utmost care, swerving this way and that to avoid the clutter of tables, busy with folk feeding themslelves upon the tender dainties with all the poise of a flock of gulls.

alignment

I wonder what’s causing the wobble? thought the mechanic, a puzzled frown creasing his wrinkled brow. It may just be the alignment of the front wheels, suggested his apprentice. The old man chuckled to himself, a rueful smile cracking his lips. He was learning fast.

pine

The aroma of pine needles always instilled a sense of nostalgia within the old man’s heart, a memory of better days now fading into the distance; sleigh bells ringing in the wake of Father Time who drew ever closer with each passing year.

stud

The stud fell from the cuff of his pristine shirt with a hollow rattle of despair upon the marble counter. The doctor cursed under his breath and sighed at his dishevelled reflection in the hotel bathroom mirror.

myself

Deep within myself is a kernel of truth, guarded by a gibbbering gnome of scant repute, seated upon a toadstool, smoking a small, briar pipe: he’s a happy camper!

lawyer

A lawyer is a thief, a liar, a scapegoat and a trier for the best and worst attributes in mankind.

yoga

I can see the point of yoga but cannot quite attain the necessary posture for successfull meditation since my back precludes any kind of contortion for longer than a few minutes at a time. A fakir must have a body made from whipcord and leather.

clipboard

Jeff, stared back at the shop steward with apprehension as the elder man scanned his clipboard with a rheumy eye. “Yeah, you’re name’s on the list,” he said laconically.” Jeff almost fainted from releif, he couldn’t afford to lose his job now a new baby was on the way.

sink

Dirty dishes deep in the sink. It’s sunday; a day of rest…do ’em tomorrow: that’d be best.

tomato

It’s that time of year again! Time to get out the seed catalogue and ponder what to grow this year: Peas, carrot, and spuds, of course, juicy tomato plants and frsh salad veg among the herbs and fruits make the garden a good place to be come summer.

brother

Jean looked at her brother with mild distaste curling her upper lip up towards her pert nose. The beans were already at work and it would prove to be a long night ahead in such a small tent. He grinned back insolently and waggled an eyebrow. “Windy tonight,” was all he said.

timing

The conductor glared vigerously at the second violin, vexed beyond speech at another example of poor timing, throwing the orchestra out of tune for the umpteenth time that day. She looked back from under her blonde fringe, contrite yet determined to try harder.
