…you bought her what…

You bought her what?”
“I, as I told you, bought her what she needs.”
“Well, I bought, unlike what you bought, her what she wants.”
“Humph. I bought her, unlike what you bought her, what was best for her.”
“Tell me what you bought her. What?”
“Ha. I will tell you. Bought her…” What?”
“For her dog. Better than what you bought.” “Her what?”
“Her dog Betsy. Remember when you bought her? What a pet.”
“So wrong. You bought her what her pet wants.”

  1. I love all the confusion in this piece and the repetition of the prompt punctuated in so many different ways. I can picture two Music Hall comedians on stage going through this routine.

  2. This is great Joe! As S-J says it is such fun to have the muddle – rather like the what, where, who sketch. Thank you for joining in the fun this week!

  3. Panda eats shoots and leaves. etc Punctuation is such fun!
    Great piece.

    A clever repetition of the prompt and it made me smile.

  7. You bought her what I need right now: a new copy of Strunk & White’s “The Elements of Style.”

  8. As long as you didn’t buy her the farm.

  9. A little Abbot and Costello to this bit, nice. I wonder what her pet wanted, and how it was confused for a human want? A brush maybe??

  10. Wow, clever! Glad *I bought* Strunk’s, “The elements of style” this week. 😉 The illustrated version of course.

  11. I love how you repeat the words inn so many different contexts, and over and over – and the best part, it all makes sense! Very creative!
