Todays daily prompt for The Daily Post is as you can see Cavity, which is a shame, for after two days flushed with pride at my previous blogs, which were both on topic and mildly amusing, someone now comes up with the word cavity!
I have to admit initially I was lost for words, well that’s not strictly true, to be precise I was lost for suitable words to use, the obvious ones which came to mind involved an attitude more akin to a late night comedy club and involved the word orifice.
Having Googled the word orifice it came up with the answer; an opening, particularly one in the body such as a nostril or the anus and had a list of synonyms which included hole, crack, slot, cleft, cranny and slit which took me straight back to a late night comedy script again.
I had printed the list of words off to study before committing them to my blog and when I went to my printer to pick them up I found a page which I had printed earlier. I thought it strangely ironic when viewing the pages that one was an item about Donald Trump and the other was the definition of an orifice.
Not to be beaten I then searched for cavity which brought up an entire page of items and rather unsavoury pictures of tooth decay and a description; an empty space within a solid object, which at that time rather described the space where my brain used to be.
At this point I was beginning to think of giving up but carried on viewing the synonyms for cavity which included space, chamber, hollow, hole and lastly orifice, whereupon I realised I had gone round in a large circle and finally disappeared up my own cavity and decided to call it a day.
This would have been so much easier had they chosen my suggestion for the prompt of the day, discombobulate, a word that has such a pleasant ring to it and involves no unseemly smuttiness whatsoever.
