Here is this week’s wordle list:
1. monkey wrench
2. dust bunny
3. jejune [naive, simplistic, and superficial|(of ideas or writings) dry and uninteresting]
5. goose-neck lamp
8. vexatious [causing or tending to cause annoyance, frustration, or worry|denoting an action or the bringer of an action that is brought without sufficient grounds for winning, purely to cause annoyance to the defendant]
9. pernicious [having a harmful effect, especially in a gradual or subtle way]
11. milk bottle
12. vermilion lipstick [vermilion:a brilliant red pigment made from mercury sulfide (cinnabar)]
At 83, Priscilla was forever wanting to be mollycoddled but when flustered, she projected pernicious hostility towards her family, blaming them for her perceived jejune existence.
It was later determined she was suffering from dementia, and with angst feelings directed at anything from dirty milk bottles to dust bunnies under the bed, things soon became strained.
Sadly the authorities had to intervene when she started wielding a goose-neck lamp as a sabre in the local furniture store and threatening to give everyone the kiss of death with her vermilion lipstick.
They could just imagine something akin to a modern day Cluedo:
“Miss Vexatious in the rowboat with the monkey wrench.”
