Wordle #149 “April 3rd, 2017″

Monday’s challenge:

1. Cleft
2. Simple
3. Pearl
4. Altschmerz n. weariness with the same old issues that you’ve always had—the same boring flaws and anxieties you’ve been gnawing on for years, which leaves them soggy and tasteless and inert, with nothing interesting left to think about, nothing left to do but spit them out and wander off to the backyard, ready to dig up some fresher pain you might have buried long ago.
5. Cheat
6. Name
7. Assemble
8. Meant
9. Lattice
10. Weak
11. Insidious adj. intended to entrap or beguile: stealthily treacherous or deceitful: operating or proceeding in an inconspicuous or seemingly harmless way but actually with grave effect
12. Let

Use at least 10 of the words to create a story or poem

He was definitely suffering from a dose of Altschmerz.
It was quite simple really. His wife Pearl had always felt cheated after her insidious efforts to lay claim to the family fortune had gone belly up.
Over thirty people assembled for the reading of The Will, where she discovered he was related in name only so many times removed in the lattice of his ancestry, it meant he  would never see a dime.
After that, she never let up, forever ridiculing him for the cleft in his weak chin knowing he was particularly sensitive about it.



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.
