Using Wednesday's Words

Elephant's Child is providing the prompts this month (you can find her in my sidebar).  This week the words are:
agonizing, murder, sleet, stimulating, flowers, offer
dramatic, distinct, zany, typical, sip and discovery.

here we go:

"This is so typical of you to make the big dramatic gesture and offer me flowers after every zany, ridiculous stunt you pull."
Jan took a sip  of the rather stimulating cocktail Phil had prepared for her.
"Just spare me the agony and tell me what you did this time and I'll try to subdue my urge to murder you."
"Actually, it was more like something I 'didn't' do."
Phill hesitated and then blurted it out.
"I left your Pookie outside and went to town and totally forgot about him.  He was out in the sleet and freezing cold for hours until Mrs Robins next door discovered him frozen to the lamp post out front and took him to the vet.  He survived but the vet says he'll have a very distinctive appearance for a while until his fur grows in."
Jan took a very deep breath as she considered what her next actions would be and whether or not they would land her in jail.


  1. Oh my gosh! I see Jan doing some jail time over this. You did really well once again Delores, I like this.

  2. Phil's a dirty bird. Not worth going to jail over, but maybe it's time to kick him to the curb.

  3. Go Jan. Perhaps she could freeze Phil to the lamp-post for a while...

  4. νηπενθές:

    Dramatic, distinct talk
    of things succinct, brainy,
    Took its typical turn upon
    Nepenthe --beyond first sip--
    And led us, zany, into reverie,
    Dream, discovery and reality.

  5. This is very good and I think Jan should tie Phil to a freezing post for a few hours.

  6. Phil should not be forgiven until Pookie’s fur grows back, or maybe never.

  7. Poor Pookie! Suitable punishment would be to do similar to Jan!!

    Imaginative use of the words, Delores. :)


It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
