What to make of these:

1. Tough
2. Collapse
3. Syncretism (n. the attempted reconciliation or union of different or opposing principles,practices, or parties, as in philosophy or religion..)
4. Uncanny
5. Catch
6. Strand
7. Barrel
8. Tendency
9. Reform
10. Warren
11. Vertebra
12. Oscitant ((adj.) yawning, as with drowsiness; gaping. drowsy or inattentive. dull, lazy, or negligent.)

They would never resolve their sibling syncretism, but there were times when Tom had wanted to barrel in with his fists and knock Bill so silly, that his vertebra rattled.
In an uncanny twist of fate. Tom now found himself in a warren of corridors and had to reform his attitude.
With a catch in his voice, his smile collapsed despite his tendency for optimism.
Lovingly he pushed away a wayward strand of hair that had fallen across his brother’s eyes as he lay in the hospital bed.
‘How are you doing?’ he asked.
With a typical oscitant smile, his brother simply stated
‘It’s Tough.’


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.
