It’s Monday, or it was. I’ve just noticed the clock has ticked over to 5 past midnight and we are now in October. Sheesh. Where has the year gone?
Note: had to put this in WIP and come back to it
Time for another dozen words from MLMM
1. Trash Talk
5. Galvanize to startle into sudden activity to stimulate
6. Outré adj. passing the bounds of what is usual or considered proper; unconventional; bizarre.
10. Fist Bump
It was the reading of the Will and some family members were seen to smugly leer at their distant cousins as they seated themselves around the oval oak table in the solicitor’s office.
There was enough voltage in the room to run the national grid when trash talk turned ugly and enough to galvanize Aunt Lois, who was considered to be of a tough disposition, to staunch the outré insults.
In her opinion, to cast murky comments and fist bump companions in a show of bigoted egos would do little to repair relations between the family. No doubt the deceased had already thought about that and things were bound to get worse before they got better.
