Wordle #164

I’m a bit late but here is this week’s wordle challenge.
https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2017/07/17/wordle-164/
Here are the words!

1. Climb
2. Vague
3. Sadness
4. Perish
5. Pangs
6. Nepenthe (n.)) A drug or drink, or the plant yielding it, mentioned by ancient writers as having the power to bring forgetfulness of sorrow or trouble. anything inducing a pleasurable sensation of forgetfulness, especially of sorrow or trouble.)
7. Neolithic
8. Four
9. Offhand
10. Reappear
11. Sallow
12. Abdicate (v)) to renounce or relinquish a throne, right, power, claim, responsibility, or the like, especially in a formal manner )

He’d never tried to climb the social ladder, and everything was a little vague as to what awaited him after his brother had abdicated in his favour.
He watched the sallow skin reappear through the facial masking.
No amount of neolithic magic or chanting could postpone the inevitable.
Though his attitude may have seemed offhand, he knew his brother would perish within four days.
In order to alleviate his pangs of fear, he had secreted a Nepenthe in his satchel and administered a lethal dose.
He sat beside him and took his hand.
Wreathed in sadness, he would not let him die alone.

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.

    Hi Di 🙂 You’re not late as such – it’s only Wednesday 😉

    Great use of the words in the wordle this week 🙂 (what a tongue twister!) Thanks for playing.

    You’ve weaved a lovely tale, filled with just enough tension and yet compassion too. Well done 🙂

    • Thank you. My week is all over the place and I only caught up with my reder for \monday and Tuesday yesterday quite late in the evening!

      • scribblersdip says:

        no problems – time is never really called on the prompts, as such 🙂

        hope you have a calmer end of the week and restful weekend 🙂

      • It’s raining, and the puzzle has come to an abrupt halt as none of the remaining pieces seem to fit!
        Next week is another househunter………………

      • scribblersdip says:

        uh oh – now that is truly unsatisfactory, but perhaps it’s a case of tired eyes? as for the up and coming, one day at a time, but definitely house hunting/hunter is never all that fun, unless you have tons of time …. Have a wonderful weekend Di. 🙂
