MLMM Wordle #148

Monday is another wordle challenge, this time set by Mindlovesmisery Menagerie.
You can find particulars here:

Our word list is:
Omphaloskepsis (navel-gazing is contemplation of one’s navel as an aid to meditation)
Paper Airplane

Jeri’s sister was sitting on a cushion in the middle of the floor staring at her tummy button.
‘What are you doing?’ she asked.
‘Practicing omphalokepsis. It’s the latest trend‘.
‘It’s damn cold in here, you could freeze your ass off. What have you got to eat? I’ll get lunch.’
‘There’s some bread I think, and cheese.’
Jeri discovered the cheese thick with mold, what was left of the loaf was as heavy as lead, and the bittersweet smell of milk on the turn greeted her nostrils when she opened the fridge.
Jeri loved her sister dearly, but there were times when she didn’t know whether to hug or slap her.
With disdain, she folded the Tummy Gazer’s Guide into a paper airplane and sailed it across the room in her sister’s direction.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    Very expertly done.

  2. Haha. Poor Jeri! I hope her paper airplane landed exactly where she wanted it to! Great job weaving all those words in, Di!

    I can think of so many more rewarding occupations than gazing at one’s belly button! An imposing name for it is the greatest recommendation.
