When I was a kid, I used to love playing a game called, “I Spy.” There are all kinds of versions, but the way we played went something like this: Whoever was “it” would look around the room, select an object, then choose a single attribute (usually the color) to describe it.
“I spy something red,” you might say. And that’s when the other players started pointing and guessing.
“That bird in the picture on the wall.”
“That stripe on the rug.”
“The letters on that magazine.”
It wasn’t always easy, guessing the correct object. If the “it” person was really creative, you often had to look long and hard.
I’m all grown up now, but the “I Spy” game still comes in handy, and it still requires keen observation skills.
Do I see a bowl of crusted cheese dip in the man cave? Hmmmm … let’s look closer. Closer. Closer. Nope. I spy signs of life.
See how great that works? Now, you try it.
Do you have something to say about the word “see”? Can you write it in five minutes, without editing? Then head on over to the lovely Lisa-Jo’s weekly blog event: Five-Minute Friday and share your thoughts on today’s prompt.
