Wordle #150 “April 10th, 2017″

Hurrah, it’s Monday, Wordle Day (and therein lies a challenge)!

1. Count
2. Iris
3. Peak
4. Penny Gush ((n.) Exaggerated stories or tales)
5. Grovel
6. Reflection
7. Assign
8. Mutable ((adj.) subject to change, fickle)
9. Lavish
10. Insignificant
11. Occhiolism ((n.) the awareness of the smallness of your perspective, by which you couldn’t possibly draw any meaningful conclusions at all, about the world or the past or the complexities of culture, because although your life is an epic and unrepeatable anecdote, it still only has a sample size of one, and may end up being the control for a much wilder experiment happening in the next room.)
12. Girl

I can see me having a problem working in number 11!

Iris had only been a girl when The Count took her for his bride after her father had grovelled to him to take her off his hands.
It didn’t take long to realise something wasn’t quite right, and as her life spiraled into depths of insignificance, she confided in her friend Penny Gush, who true to her name, helped compose lavish half truths to compensate for her occhiolism.
These were highly mutable depending on her mood and to which of her husband’s friends she had been assigned to entertain.
Her peak of final curiosity was satisfied when she understood why there were no mirrors anywhere in her home.
The Count and all his friends were vampires, and thus cast no reflection.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
