#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Wage

People would have liked her to say that her wage didn’t matter, but the truth was that she wasn’t paid nearly enough to wage war on a drug lord and risk her life when she knew he would bribe his way out of jail anyway.



Here are the prompt rules:
Make a sentence with the word of the week. Leave it as just a sentence or write a post to go with it.

Try to do it on Tuesday.

Include the hashtag #tuesdayuseitinasentence.

Post it on Twitter and/or Facebook (if you have a public site) and/or Pinterest and/or WordPress and/or any other social media site you belong to.

Participate as many times as you’d like. You can write a different sentence for each platform, but please keep it to one sentence per post.

I will be trolling Twitter for the hashtag, so watch my Twitter feed in the sidebar for retweets. Make sure to connect on Twitter with other participants!

If you post your sentence here on WordPress or on any other site where there’s a clickable link, include the link in the comment section for this week.

Google #tuesdayuseitinasentence to find other participants! The more you connect, the bigger it gets and the more views and followers you’ll have.

Have fun!

What are you waiting for? Make up a sentence and join in!
Tuesday use it in a sentence was created by Linda G Hill and I’m looking forward to sharing duties again with Kelli from Forty, c’est fantastique.
Thank you both.

    Nice double use of ‘wage’ Stephanie. And people are right, well below her pay grade – bless her for being so brave. And there are such people in the world, too. Astonishing. I’ll get back to you in a little while 🙂

    1. It’s also a double meaning. I think Catch 22 is influencing me.

        Are you enjoying it? It’s a book often cited but one I’ve never read.

        1. I’m finding it challenging because the entire book is constructed around that circular endless loop of the catch 22. From the characters to the chapter construction and progression. It makes for baffling and head shaking moments.

          Sounds confusing – and that’s without even trying to read it 🙂

  2. Those who have nothing left to lose, are empowered to wage war against oppression

  3. Have you tried watching the movie of Catch 22? It helps and doesn’t help with the book, but it’s an interesting film none the less.
    Love your use of wage, now I must wage my own war on words to battle the wages of sin — sloth — and come up with a good sentence!

    1. oops, sloth is among the seven deadly sins, while the wages of sin is death and I hope I’m not battling that today.

    2. I haven’t seen the movie. But some day probably.
