This word from the Daily Post this time is a prickly one. Oh my what a word: prickle!
No it doesn’t mean a prickly pickle. You may feel like you are in a “pickle” if you get pricked by a prickle. A prickle can be a small thorn from a bush that doesn’t feel too nice on your skin. Or you may be pricked with anger when someone hits you from behind when you are waiting at a red light. Maybe you are in a prickly situation that is not too pleasant.
Like a feather under your nose gives you a tickle, you may feel the urge to have a pickle. But don’t go out looking to buy a sickle because you cannot harvest a pickle with a sickle. Instead just go sit down and relax with a Popsicle while the rain comes down in a trickle.
Okay, so I’m not the best poet (cough – cough). Anyway, maybe somebody today could use some dry humor. Ha Ha!
