This is week 86 of the Saturday Wordzzle challenge.
Anyone new to the process can refer back here to
find out how it works. Thank you to South Lakes Mom
for this week's words. Whew. They are challenging!
Glad I'm not to blame for them. Not sure what's going
on with blogger running words off the page.
Trying to fix it. Blogger is just being mean to me. Sorry.
I did my best but it's all coming out weird and looking one
way in preview and another when posted. I did try.
Too tired to fight it any more.
The words for this week's ten word challenge were:
Incensed, sidewinder, bogus, conniption, Haz-mat,
conniving, customize, perforated, zeal,
rolling off a log And for the mini: abstemious,
chlorophyll, origami, cheerleader, dung beetle
Either I'm very tired or this is the worst group of words ever.
Haz-mat? Sidewinder? If I weren't so tired I'd have a
conniption fit just trying to work them all into a paragraph.
If this wasn't a cyber wordzzle, I'd fold them up origami-like
into the shape of a dung beetle and stomp them out as they
deserve to be stomped out. Thank God at least I'm not
responsible for the words this time. You won't find me as some
cheerleader here. I wish it was chloroform in stead of chlorophyll.
I could knock myself unconscious. I'd be incensed if these
words weren't exactly what the challenge demands and if
I weren't so renovated out, I'd probably go at them with
great zeal. Sometimes the stories come to me easy as
rolling off a log, but not today. I know this is a bogus effort,
a conniving cheat. A more abstemious person would wait
for inspiration to germinate but my imagination has been
perforated (figuratively) by hammers, nails and caulking
glue and the installation of customized cabinets. I am beat.
Chuck "Sidewinder" Bogus had a name that suited him.
Seldom had a more conniving human being drawn breath.
Running scams for Chuck was as easy as rolling off a log.
He customized his scams - his favorite was selling fake
Haz-mat suits to the gullible - with an easy, free-flowing
zeal that left his incensed victims' egos so perforated
that it sometimes took months for the shock to be worked
off and their feelings of outrage to rise from the ashes of
their broken dreams. Unfortunately, by the time their
conniption fits kicked in, of course, Chuck was long gone.
Maggie Susan Randall was not your average cheerleader.
She was rather abstemious by nature and despite her
ravishing beauty and physical agility, when she wasn't out
rooting for the school team, she was usually involved in one
serious pursuit or another. She had great artistic talent and
besides an eye for painting, she had pretty much mastered
the art of origami paper folding by the age of 11. Her
scholarly interests were in biology and entomology with
particular interest in researching the impact of dung beetles
on the production of chlorophyll in certain plants. Although
her mother worried that her daughter was too serious, she
need not have been concerned since Maggie Sue blended
her quiet, egg-headed tendency with an unusually sweet and
generous nature, so that despite being gifted on so many
fronts, she remained popular with just about everyone. She
was a happy girl and was destined (the Fates knew) to live
an interesting, productive and joyful life.
Next Week's Ten Word Challenge will be: plumber, autograph,
Florence Nightengale, a chill wind’s a blowing,
watering hole, sleek, triplets, backwards, surface
And for the mini: Free estimates,French fries, carpet,
Braille, silver-tongued bandit
Thanks for playing. For those who are new, here are some guidelines to make the process more fun.
Enjoy! See you next week.
DON'T FORGET TO ADD YOUR NAME TO MR. LINKY!!!!!
