MHW0001: MarkHWords — An acronym of itself

Word at play: MARKHWORDS
Inspiration date: August 23rd, 2017
Where else found online: not yet

Markโ€™s
Acrostic
Recreation
Keeps
Him
WittyCulus;
Offers
Rare
Deep
Satisfaction

What better way to start the #MarkHWords chronicle than making an acronym of the namesake!

I must admit it wasn’t easy coming up with this one.

Not until I got the idea of looking from the perspective of a recreation. And how it does satisfy me.

After several iterations, I finally settled on this apt description for my word play hobby.

And I brought in the WittyCulus angle ๐Ÿ™‚

MHW0002: Stretch — and stop chasing!

Word at play: STRETCH
Inspiration date: August 23rd, 2017

Savour
True
Resourcefulness
Eluding
Those
Chasing
Haplessly

The book “Stretch: Unlock the Power of Less – and Achieve More Than You Ever Imagined” is really an eye opener for me. Dr. Scott Sonenshein argued for more resourcefulness and creativity through fewer actual resources on hand in a persuasive manner in his book.

After reading just a couple of chapters, I was inspired to write my #MarkHWords take on “Stretch”. I believe it captures the essence of the book’s message.

No

This acronym says it all. For one, I’m not motivated to tidy my work desk, cupboard and clear that overfilled storeroom!

There is other stuff I need to work on too for improvement.

Ah inertia, you’ll be overcome for sure. (Just don’t ask me when ๐Ÿ™ )

This acronym came to mind quickly as I looked for a cheeky reply to a friend’s post on Facebook.

Selina had shared a photo of something she ate — sinful, I’m guessing — and her resolve(?) to start dieting the next day.

Why did I choose “tomorrow” instead of “today” for that letter T? Easy; for not starting to diet today is a forgone conclusion for most people.

When guilt strikes after eating unwisely, there’s always tomorrow to count on to right that wrong ๐Ÿ™‚

Looking at the various amusing replies she got, you know this dieting thingy is not merely a joke!

MHW0006: Bra — Something to do with cup?
