This weekend’s Trifextra challenge instructed:
This week we are taking you, once again, back to school for a lesson in literary devices. Remember the apostrophe? About.com defines apostrophe as, “A figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.” That same site provides some excellent examples of apostrophes in classical literature. Check them out and then have a crack at it yourself. Give us your best 33-word example of an apostrophe.
And so in honor of Friday the 13th and in keeping with my Five for Friday post, I bring you a “Bloody Good” example of an apostrophe.
Oh horror flick, your blood and gore delight me.
You unsettle me with such sickeningly sweet slaughter.
Scream queens and twisted nerves, I clutch my blanket and quake at the tiniest of noises.
Stay positive & love your life!
