Wordzzle #55

This is week 55 of the Saturday Wordzzle challenge. Anyone new to the process can refer back here to find out how it works. I thought these words were very difficult but once I got started I had kind of a good time with them. Still, I think I need to come up with a new system... or maybe therapy for my muse who seems to go a bit nuts when she spews out the new words every week. Anyway, looking forward to reading every one's offerings.

I would like to thank Raven for hosting this writing challenge. She always does a great job and is an angel at problems solving if you have any trouble with Mr. Linkey. Thank you for all your help.

The words for this week's ten word challenge were: humanity, shadow, ricochet, wrong, pluralism, mathematics, person-hood, printing press, ink spot, choral society.

The pluralism of the choral society prides itself with great diversity, except for one lady. Nina fern could not stand the fact that she was not the soloist for next Sunday's service. In stead, the choral director had given the solo to Nancy and believe me Nina was not happy. "Oh, the humanity of it", sighed Nina Fern.

In an attempt to change things to her favor, Nina Fern had arranged for some books to be inadvertently left on the stairs to the choir loft. Nancy, upon climbing the stairs, fell and ricochet like a bullet, hitting her head and breaking her wrist. This was big news in our little town!

How could anyone hurt Nancy? The church was agaist...James,the choral director sighed " I think I may know who has done this dirty deed". So he went to see the local mathematics teacher to discuss the incident. Oddly enough Mr. Wright came up with a plausible equation as to how the accident occured.

It was quite simple. Nancy did not see the items left in the shadow of the stairs and tripped. That was it! Mr. Wright said "I am never wrong". "OK," said the choral director. Let me see if I understand you correctly. "You think Nancy fell on her own because she did not see the books in the shadow of the stairs?" "Why, yes I do," said Mr. Wright. "Alright", said James.

James went to another friend for an explantion. He sought advice from Ferdinand Fandango, the fabulous. After much discussion, Ferdinand said he had help Nina fern with the books, but did not know of the impending doom for Nancy. "I did not mean for her person-hood to be hurt in any way", sang Ferdinand.

On Saturday night, the ink spots had barely dried from the letter James, the choral director, had written. He turned Nina Fern over to the pastor. That night the pastor called Mr. Baker and said "Stop the printing presses, we have a problem". Miss Nina Fern's name had to be omitted from the church program and Nancy's name was added as the soloist. Oh, the humanity of it all.

Ah Nancy got her own way after all! :0

Dr.John said...

Wow! Fighting in a choral society. One would never expect such a thing. And such a mean thing to do.
Glad she got caught.
Loved the story.
The five words in one sentence worked out great-twice.

I have known of people getting upset when they do not get to solo but to stoop to harming a fellow member. I am glad that Nancy got the solo.

Raven said...

Oh the humanity! I love it! SO glad justice prevailed. You're welcome for the help with Mr. Linky. Glad I was able to figure it out. That was more luck than anything else.

Dianne said...

Intrigue and "accidents" behind the scenes at the choral society - I think we both channeled our own inner demons this week ;)

oh and the mini is wonderful!!

Fandango said...

We love your blog.
This was a very good wordzzle. Poor Nancy ends up with a broken wrist but she can still sing. Good job she wasn't a shot putter.
Loved your two mini stories.
This was a great read.

Alice said...

WoHooo, Pam. Great story. I'm glad Nina Fern got found out. That was just plain nasty of her to hurt Nancy. Good story. You must be "bucking for brownie points" with the dragons this week, using Fandango's name in your story, LOL!! I'll have to remember that one and try it too one time.

Thom said...

Very nice to meet you also Pam. And thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Richard said...

Is it really that cutthroat at their church? I like the name Nina Fern which backwards is Anin Nerf.

Carletta said...

Raven stole my words! :)
I was so going to say Oh, the humanity!
Nina needs confession and forgiveness.
Great story Pam!

Well done! The tangles webs of church life and the choir singers!

fighting for the spotlight, the age-old feud - but you set it in a unconventional place which makes it more of an intriguing and not-so-ordinary tale

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

LOL... fun as usual. I love your little twists and turns :)

Sandi McBride said...

Great job here, Pam...your use of words is always a joy to behold!
