Weekly Wordzzle - The Meh Edition
I almost didn't participate in the Wordzzle this week – I was VERY unhappy with my effort for the 10-word challenge. But since I suffered writing it I decided to make you suffer too. Heh. Besides it's poking fun at a good friend (it's not a true story, but it could happen. Really!).
Words for the mini challenge: plastic, forgotten, make-shift, happy days, infant
Oh those not
Happy days of
Wide open world
Wide open wide open
And now, I am in a
Plastic frame of mind
Fluid and make-shift
Wondering when that
Wide open world
Closed its doors
Words for the 10-word challenge are: super duper, think first and act later, jump rope, soap opera, delivery, barbeque, jewelry, on sale, justification, figure of speech
The Bug was singing along to the oldies station, "Super duper, lights are gonna find me…" Or was it super trouper? She had never really been sure. Half remembered arguments about song lyrics danced in her head. She had long since decided that it didn't matter – did "revved up like a deuce" make any more sense than "wrapped up like a douche?" What the heck was The Boss talking about anyway? Humph.
She was still contemplating the mysteries of the Heard Word when the doorbell rang, causing her to jump up in startled surprise. She wasn't expecting a delivery – the jewelry she had ordered (on sale!) off of Home Shopping Network wouldn't be here until next week.
Realizing it was just her best friend Kim, she opened the door saying "You scared me nearly to death!" She said "I must have! You look terrible!"
"Well, gee thanks," said the Bug ruefully, "it was just a figure of speech for heaven's sake!"
Pleasantries over, they started talking about this and that. Kim mentioned a new workout she had heard about at their local Y – Jump Rope to the Music of Mozart. It sounded a lot more interesting than watching a soap opera from the treadmill. Then they discussed the new barbeque restaurant in town & wondered if the proprietor would frown if they brought their own sauce in. There just was no justification for not having Carolina barbeque sauce as one of the choices!
Then, finally, Kim started talking about why she had come over. "I saw a show about how we should all act first and think later and I just had to run right over to see what you thought about it!"
The Bug just started laughing. "Kim, I saw that show too – it was saying that you should think first and act later! I guess you don't have that concept down just yet, do you?"
Kim started howling with laughter. She chortled, "Wait till I tell Nathan about my latest blonde moment!"
