Wordle #202

Sarah’s posted Yves word selection this week.

  1. pint
  2. chase
  3. fists
  4. cease
  5. sleeping bag
  6. octopus
  7. marooned
  8. metal
  9. breathless
  10. pennyworth
  11. wastrel (noun). a wasteful or good-for-nothing person.
  12. wanderjahr (noun). A year spent travelling abroad, typically immediately before or after a university or college course.

When Jake announced he was going on a wanderjahr, his father called him a wastrel.
‘All you’re good for is drinking pints, making money with your fists and camping out with your sleeping bag after chasing pennyworth dreams.’
Jake had long since ceased to be concerned about his father’s low opinion of him. Such tirades always left him breathless and red in the face, so with a cheerful wave, he pressed the metal to the floor and drove away.
He was looking forward to the adventure, and he didn’t care if he got marooned on an island with just an octopus for company. That thought made him smile, as it would make a good metaphoric title for a book!

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.

  1. Be like Jake – that’s my primary thought after reading this flash fiction. It’s a very good lesson. 🙂
