Tuesday Use It In A Sentence – Pride


The lion took pride in his pride. The zoo tried, and they tried until they finally pried him from his enclosure; he was just getting too old and they needed more young’uns.



Here are the prompt rules:

  1. Make a sentence with the word of the week. Leave it as just a sentence or write a post to go with it.
  2. Try to do it on Tuesday.
  3. Include the hashtag #tuesdayuseitinasentence.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Google #tuesdayuseitinasentence to find other participants! The more you connect, the bigger it gets and the more views and followers you’ll have.
  9. Have fun!


What are you waiting for? Make up a sentence and join in!

P.S. This is my last week doing this prompt: we’ll have a team of two taking over next week. I hope you’ll continue to participate!

    Does anyone find this ironic considering how we use the word pride?


    • Of course as one of Christianity’s seven deadly sins it’s bound to be a bad thing. I prefer to think of it in the less dramatic way as something that, if you have it, you’re likely to be miserable if you lose it. Then it depends what it is you’re proud of. Pride in one’s looks and fortune is a recipe for disaster. Pride in one’s accomplishments is a little harder to take away.
      So yes and no to the question of irony. I can be proud of my children without them being proud of themselves, but even that is a tricky thing. I’d have to say it’s largely contextual.
      Thanks for bringing this up, Beth. ๐Ÿ™‚ Interesting thought.

      • Is self-respect sometimes mistaken for pride? Might we be mistaking knowledge of a job well-done for pride? Love for our children might also be mistaken for pride.
