Over to Sarah this week for our 12 words to ponder.
Brood, moody, hex, sober, salubrious *, ransom, counterintuitive, calculate, misnomer, train, fortunate, appease.
* salubrious (adj.) health-giving; healthy
She was convinced someone had put the hex on her since dumping her calculating moody boyfriend who had used her for a roof over his head and money in his pocket. He was never sober yet everyone was under the misnomer he was such a nice guy so now her emotions were being held to ransom by some counterintuitive force.
She brooded over how to appease her mother who absolutely adored him, knowing her reception would be far from salubrious.
Oh well, Perhaps it was fortunate that she’d missed her train.
