Good Morning Wordzzle Town!
The birds are chirping, the air is fresh and clean, the green grass is wet from springtime showers, the coffee is delicious, and I got to sleep past 6 AM – and all on the same day!
What could possibly add to this charmed existence?
My Wordzzle is ready! My Wordzzle is ready!
Ten Word Challenge: pleasant, flukey, desperation, penumbra, hoarsely, triumph, burden, colander, Kermit the Frog, lavender
Kermit the Frog was so tired of being pleasant. It was a burden he had carried for years and years. It was his persona and his livelihood but in reality it was just the outcome of a flukey moment. Before being discovered he had lived on the penumbra of the underground frog world earning money any way he could. In desperation he had even spent days sifting lavender through a colander to make potpourri. Poor conflicted Kermit couldn’t decide whether his being discovered by Hollywood was a blessing or a curse. Although he met every new engagement with a smile of triumph he yearned for those simple days when he’d peddle his potpourri while hoarsely singing out about the tribulations of his color.
And for the Mini Challenge: avalanche, masterpiece, yellow, alligator, thieving
Lord Percy donned his best yellow polo shirt, the one with the alligator on it, and headed out to find the thieving bastards who had stolen his masterpiece. It was to be a quiet weekend at the ski lodge; drinking brandy and enjoying the end of season warmth. The robbery had ruined all that and Percy couldn’t imagine anything worse than losing his beloved sculpture. As he searched the melting snow for tire tracks and other clues he heard a roar that filled his head and heart with dread. “Avalanche” he screamed as he realized the day could indeed get worse.
