Using Wednesday's Words

"Why are you looking so glum Ralph?  Did someone scarper with all the ham sandwiches?"
"No, but I got a big mouthful of capers when I tasted Miss Minnie's offering to the refreshment table.  That stuff belongs in the trash.  What a cruel thing to do to a perfectly good piece of pork."
Sharon grinned.  "You got no taste Ralphie.  But, it was a lovely funeral though, wasn't it?  Big Eddie would have been so proud of his little nephew playing Amazing Grace on his penny whistle.  It was charming.  He always said that kid was talented."
"Yeah, great funeral, nicely done, but it was pure bedlam when they accidentally dropped the coffin into the trench and Big Eddie rolled out.  What a shocker.  Glossy pink lipstick and fishnet stockings with seams.  Who knew?"
Sharon shook her head.  "But did they really have to bury that perfectly good Coach bag with him? What a waste."

  5. I liked what you wrote with the use of those words, it was fun to read. Thank you!



    Here's my story I came up with:

    Do you believe one can (scarper) out of their bodily form they're in, in a (caper) manner? I do, I do it quite often, especially when I'm trying to escape the (glum) in my life, or the (bedlam) that's all around me at times! Am I (charmed) being able to do such a thing as this, some people might think so, but for me, it's true Magick! Not like a magic card trick, luck in a card game, or the good fortune some people think they'll get when they find a (penny) lying on the ground which they bend over to pick up ripping their jeans at the (seams) if you know what I mean. When I talk about this Magick I do, some people might think I'm only speaking (trash), which I say fine, think whatever you want. There are so many beliefs people have, like some people believe it's not good to eat (pork)! Then there are those that take false (pride) when they're driving their new (glossy) car down the street that they're making payments on, which they've soon drove themselves into a (trench) after the (whistle) was blown on them seeing they couldn't make their payments!
