Raven's Saturday Wordzzle Week 63

I would like to thank our hostess, the brilliant and lovely Raven for continuing to inspire us to write and participate in this weekly writing challenge.

This is week 63 of the Saturday Wordzzle challenge. Anyone new to the process can refer back here to find out how it works. Many thanks to Dawn Treader for sending me word suggestions for next week.

This week's Ten Word Challenge will be: Green goddess, shampoo, filibuster, please and thank you, Operation Marigold, throw pillows, up the creek without a paddle, spandex, ubiquitous, wedding ring, Mini Challenge: Skittles, lamb chops, stingray, chagrin, clever devil
Next Week's Ten Word Challenge will be: albino, trench, marble, assistant, Indian, What's that supposed to mean?, sound first principles, the key thing, moat, curtain The mini challenge: under the surface, doomed, grand design, temple, aspirin

In the Senate, they were use to long drawn out speeches to filibuster bills they did not want to pass. Their goal was initiate Operation Marigold and to run their mouths tight as spandex throwing up any item they could to delay the vote. They used it when they were up a creek without a paddle. The Green goddess shampoo bill was passed by ubiquitous debate and caused the Senators to throw pillows and even a wedding ring or two at the orator. All they could finally say was please and thank you for ending this long drawn out speech. There should be a bill passed for introducing such irrelvent issues, but then they probably couldn't decide on that either.


Much to our chagrin, Mr. Skittles, that clever devil, had prepared everything from lamb chops to stingray for a most unusual feast.

Well done. The mini was my favorite but they were both delightful.

LOL the 10 word described exactly what politicians do best! I liked the mini - short and very sweet!

I liked the mini -all the words in one sentence.
Interesting use of the word throw pillows.
All in all a fun read.

Mr Skittles is a fine chef.
You captured the problem of filibuster.

Fandango said...

People should not throw pillows or wedding rings. They should throw yummy lamb chops and skittles. Ask any dragon.
Two great stories. We like how concise you were on the last one.
