Wordle #144 “February 27th, 2017″

Welcome to Monday’s wordle challenge

These are the words we have to work with this week, use at least 10 for a story or piece of poetry, whatever takes your fancy.

1. Good
2. Enter
3. Tree
4. Mirabilis ((adj.) wondrous, remarkable, amazing)
5. Different
6. Abandon
7. Plausible
8. Lucida (the brightest star in a constellation)
9. Bald
10. Flaw
11. Apotropaic ((adj.) Intended to ward off evil.)
12. Grow

It had been a serious error of judgement in cost cutting, and they should have known no good would come of it.
It had taken her 25 years to grow but now thanks to a different supplier, their plans to win the competition for Mirabilis Locks of the Century had to be abandoned.
To enter, only natural products could be used, so the idea of pure tea tree oil had sounded perfectly plausible.
However, disaster struck when their star attraction woke up after applying the magic tincture almost totally bald and even an apotropaic ritual failed to correct the flaw.
It didn’t take a lucida in hairdressing to realise they’d been duped by the opposition.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
