Prickle by Penny Chavers

A prickle can be a small thorn from a bush.

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!
