I Challenge You To…

This week’s challenge is to write a story, limerick or poem on the subject of:


Last week’s challenge was to write about chips/crisps. You sent in some really funny pieces. Here are a few:

Here’s Keith Channing‘s brilliant limerick:

As soon as it passes my lips
The best food descends to my hips
Fried fish done in batter
Will soon make me fatter
So for now, it’s Goodby Mr Chips.

Steph Richmond has written something we can all relate to:

The WeightWatchers Conundrum.
It looked at me, tempting me. I could almost hear it saying, ‘Go on, I won’t hurt you… come just a little closer.’ I was torn. Should I give in to temptation? My mind was saying, ‘No’, my heart saying, ‘Yes’. I am learning to follow my heart in most things.
I reach out to accept my fate, my mouth waters. My mind tries to rebel but instinct has taken over. I look towards my tormentor. Fresh bread and butter with cheese and onion crisps.
A simple pleasure but that’s what life is made up of, although, tomorrow the scales will tell the real price of my temptation.

Here’s what EDC Writing had to say:

Been staring at your comment box; the words, I think, are like lettuce – limp. Best chip away and crisp them up but sad to say so far no luck!

And an amusing limerick from Kevin:

I know a young lady called Chips
Who seductively jiggles her hips.
She works in a gentleman’s club
And serves all kinds of grub
But being a lady, she never strips …

Bumba‘s is short and sweet:

Chips and crisps
I like them crunchy
I think I’ll have a bag for lunchy.

  1. Sometimes, when the weather is fine
    We sit back with bread, cheese and wine
    There is no way how
    We could do that right now


  2. Reblogged this on Keith Kreates! and commented:
    A weekly challenge from Esther Chilton my former writing tutor (who cannot be held responsible for the poor quality of my output). It’s always fun and gives me a chance to knock off the odd limerick. Thanks, Esther.

  3. These are fun ! Thanks for the giggle Esther. 🙂

  4. Thanks for the opportunity to participate:

    Drinking wine
    With my friend Divine
    In the sunshine,
    All was good
    Until being drunk
    As a skunk
    She fell
    In the mud.
    But I promised not to tell
    So please keep that
    Under your Hat …

  5. Hi Esther Here is a little story I wrote a while ago. Hope it fits the ‘sunshine’ bill! Carla_________________ Carla Burns

    I just posted a response freestyle poem, Sunshine is a Wakening, on Simplicity Lane. Thanks for the challenge. I will be away on a short vacation until late next week, so I will not be able to read posts. Steve
