Every month I choose a photograph from one of my Flickr groups to appear here. Hopefully something interesting and informative.
This month’s seasonal photo is from 2-Dog-Farm. It’s called “I wonder what the difference between a prickle and a tickle is?” It shows a cat (Tigerlily) scratching its chin.
Unfortunately 2-Dog-Farm doesn’t enlighten us as to what the difference is, but fear not. I checked in the dictionary:-
A prickle can be one of several thin sharp points that stick out of a plant or animal, or a feeling as if a lot of little points are sticking into your body.
I felt a hot prickle of embarrassment spread across my cheeks.
She lay on the grass and the stiff dry grass prickled the back of her legs.
