MlMM Wordle #188

Thanks to Yves for setting the Monday wordle.

Our words today:

Soi-disant- ((adj.) calling oneself thus; self-styled. so-called or pretended.)
Bumble Bee


‘Cross my palm with silver,’ the soi-disant gypsy droned from beneath a black lace veil.
Any reservation Melissa had was compounded when the old crone began to precipitate her future and that she would find true love.
‘Load of old mumbo jumbo,’ she thought deciding to stay to hear what else could be ‘seen’.
‘I see a cradle under a large bumble bee,’ she continued, ‘and a lone figure up to their elbows in soapy water.’
Had Melissa been walking, she would have skid to a halt. Nobody knew she was pregnant, nor that she had just bought an overhead cot mobile with bees on it.
‘Got your attention now dearie, haven’t I!’ the old woman cackled.

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.
