    WHAT WAS REALLY MEANT? - Not always what is said.

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by cleo, Dec 7, 2011.

    1st poster makes a statement or remark about something or someone.​
    2nd poster says what the poster above really meant.​
     ​
    Post # 1 You look lovely in that red dress​
    Post # 2 At your age, you look ridiculous in that tight red dress., You could be mistaken for a fire engine.
    Don’t forget to leave a statement for the next poster to work on.​
    My post - You have a beautiful home.

    Cool? the advert about coke is really uncool. The millions spent on it could feed a third world country for a year!

    Oh, what a handsome bride and groom. I can see them being married forever!

    What they really meant: That is if it were me getting married to that bride/groom. Those two? I wouldn't be surprised if they divorced within the month.

    I don't see any way for this to go wrong!
