I Challenge You To…

Esther Chilton is hosting a challenge in which she invites you to write about ballet. Below you can find the contributions of those who have contributed thus far, together with my limerick on the subject of ballet.

Ester also includes some amusing contributions from last weeks challenge, in which she invited readers to write about cheese. I enjoyed last week’s contributions and, in particular the prose piece, by Martin Strike. Being a huge consumer of cheese, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to contribute to last week’s challenge in the form of a limerick and Esther kindly reproduces my poem in the below post.



This week’s challenge is to write a story, limerick or poem on the subject of:


Last week’s challenge was to write about cheese. You sent in some simply brilliant pieces. Here are a few:

Keith Channing wrote a thoroughly entertaining limerick:

I live in a land famed for cheese
With Rocqueforts and Cantals and Bries
To make them is lawful
Though some taste bloody awful
Just send me some strong Cheddar, please!

Peter Wellshad some fun:

Sometimes it makes me sneeze,

Don’t be unhinged,

No cause for alarm,

It’s an addiction and not a disease!

Visit Steve Walsky‘s blog for a ‘cheesy events’ piece!:


D Avery send in some super limericks:

How can I ever make it up to you?
This cheese is green and you wanted blue
I can’t hope to console ya
With this Gorgonzola
If green cheese is something you do eschew.
