If you're a writer, an editor or even a reader, you've probably run across sets of words that make no sense. Some words sound the same (and maybe even look the same), yet their meanings are completely different. What gives?. Many people dislike homonyms, but I find them quite hilarious, at times. After years of writing and editing, I have grown quite fond of them. They have their own special sense of humor when they show up in a scene, unexpected and unannounced, and so, in their honor, let me share with you some of my favorite (and sometimes, most embarrassing) homonyms:
When you've barely started to bare your feelings, but it's already too much to bear:
When your dearest dares to sneak a kiss:
When you find out that your favorite band has been banned, but you've already got tickets to the show:
When you meet a friend for dinner:
When you want to bury that annoying person at work, but murder is illegal, so you do the next best thing:
When you settle to share a long tale, but suddenly, you're not so sure:
When the prince won't dance with you at the ball:
Cheer up - there's no need to bawl! I hear he's not even good at sports.
When you go to the vein doctor, but he's actually a vain doctor:
When you sew yourself a sunny satchel so you can better sow your seeds:
When it's raining, so you have to rein in your enthusiasm:
When something piques your interest, so you try to catch a sneak peek:
Did I cover your favorite homonym? Which ones have given you trouble in the past? Let me know in the comments! Until next time, ciao!
