Weekly Photo Challenge … Spare

May 31, 2016

teacupThis prompt came when I needed it least; it seems.  ‘Spare’ has a negative tone. It conjures up: not needed, redundant, duplicate, surplus to requirements and so on. Who likes to be told you are spare, the article is a copy, you are fired, sorry (or not) you are the insignificant other?

I am thinking of ways to claim spareness back and celebrate it … can you?

I say is there a spare cup of tea in the pot? And yes sounds nice.

    Spare a moment for someone…
    A spare tyre for the car
    Some spare time for someone or yourself
    Spare a thought…
    Spare someone/something of ill
    Spare someone of their blushes
    Spare no expense
    Two balls, knocking down ten pins equals a spare
    … all quite positive?

    Yes, I agree with the 2nd one – having a spare tire/tyre when you need it is worth celebrating.
    But I love sparing a moment for someone. Something we should all do!
