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.
About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin
I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent.
Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work.
I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise.
I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013.
My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie.
I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes.
I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage.
My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1
