Wordzle 52

This week Saturday Wordzzle is hosted by the lovely Raven at
Views from Raven's Nest . For more details about this fun writing challenge just click Raven's blog.

Next Week's Ten Word Challenge will be: Netflix, mortgage, skunk, flagrant, the New York Times, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, perpendicular, geometry, crabby, shoveling snow

This week my sister, Candy, is writing the Wordzzle challenge. I think you will enjoy her story.

Alonzo's Crabby Attitude...

While patiently pondering my Netflex order and trying not to deplete my mortgage payment, my pet skunk, Alonzo, flagrantly criticized my passion for diligently working the New York Times crossword puzzle. "Just because you don't have the good sense that God gave a goose, you trivialize all that I value in life." He sneered again and said "I guess you'll be reading The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Universe again tonight instead of cleaning my skunk bed aligned perpendicular to Pluto." I laughed hysterically and told him that his knowledge of geometry was obviously skewed and that if he continued to make light of my literary prowess with his crabby attitude, that he could spend the night outside shoveling snow. He hung his head down and humbly said "me sorry...I luv you."

Mini Challenge: pragmatic, crystal ball, laundry, safflower oil, Gregorian chants

While still bantering with Alonzo, my pragmatic self queered my crystal ball in order to prepare my To Do List for tomorrow. I asked if there were any special precautions that I needed to take. "Do not do the laundry with safflower oil. This will cause great concern to your clothes unless you are singing Gregorian Chants during the rinse cycle." I drifted off to sleep to the sound of Alonzo shoveling snow and my crystal ball chanting "Do not do the laundry with safflower oil. Do not do the laundry...Do not."

What a fun idea and I enjoyed writing.
Candy, Pam's sister

Welcome Candy . You did a fine job as a guest writer considering the quality of your sister's writing.
Never thought of a talking skunk .
Loved the way you made the two stories flow together.
Visit again or better yet start a blog and join in.

Doing laundry with Safflower oil is a no no. good job.

Welcome Candy, loved the talking Skunk. Just one correction needed I think. I believe you were meaning to query your crystal ball instead of queering it. Sounds slightly perverse the way it was spelled.

Hi Candy! These were great fun. How cool to have such a handy talking skunk! Welcome to wordzzles. Fun, isn't it? If you don't have a blog and Pam wants her own back, you are always welcome to mail submissions to me and I'll post them when I post my own. Thanks for playing. You're a natural-born wordzzler.

Great job Candy!

I love Alonzo - a skunk with attitude yet heart

and I enjoyed how the mini flowed from the first - I laughed when I realized Alonzo was shoveling snow after all ;)

you should definitely start a blog!
