3WW CCLX

Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words.
Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title and paste it to Mr. Linky below). As  always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

But I invite everyone to check back often to read and  comment on other contributions. This is, after all, a community for writers who clamor for feedback.
This week's words: 

Cherish; verb: Protect and care for (someone) lovingly; hold (something) dear; keep (a hope or ambition) in one's mind.

Guarantee; noun: A formal promise or assurance (typically in writing) that certain conditions will be fulfilled, esp. that a product will be repaired or replaced if not of a specified quality and durability; verb: Provide a formal assurance or promise, especially that certain conditions shall be fulfilled relating to a product, service, or transaction.

Nausea; noun: A feeling of sickness with an inclination to vomit; loathing, revulsion.

This one went oddly. Gunpowder tea and oak trees with mistletoe.

Well, as usual, not what I thought I'd be writing about when I first saw the words. :)

Didn't feel terribly inspired by these three words. So I just let my fingers do the talking!

I always cherish a spot of nausea!

Oops, looks like I linked to the wrong place the first time. I am still learning. I found the idea of three word prompts more difficult that I expected, but I posted my short short anyway.

I was great until "nausea." This certainly was a challenge! Took me until Sunday to get it right... Amy
