Worddzle Time

Posted by SMM on 13:24
As I entered the room, I saw a lady in a magnificent red dress and ostrich feathers in her hat, scuffed red pencil heels and a whiff of cheap perfume with a cigar in hand, chipped red nails on a veined hand stroking the cat on her lap, and calmly rocking away on her chair. Looking around the room, I saw that, though now shabby, the room must have been really beautiful, some 40 years back. There was a lovely carved teakwood liquor cabinet in one corner of the room, a teakwood bookshelf with empty shelves on one side of the room, a few scratched plastic chairs and a worn beige carpet with longitudinal stripes of maroon. Clearly the room and the lady had seen better days. There were a few old faded boxes of Hamburger Helper on one of the book shelves. As I entered she said in a high throaty voice “Since you’re here, you might as well hand me that box of laundry detergent from the top shelf. I can’t reach it. Tabby and me have a partnership. She dirties my dress and I clean it. So where are you from young man?” San Fransisco.” “So what is your prognosis on the weather for today? I don’t want to go out if its very sunny. I don’t want any pre mature crow lines.” “Ummm, well it is a sunny day today. You probably shouldn’t go out”

I shall continue the story in next week’s Wordzzle.


Hi,there..just noticed ur reply to my comment on Sol's post..lovely blog you've got..I couldn't help grinning away at the humorous vein of the two posts I just read..will surely be back for more!

AmitL: hey welcome o my blog...glad you enjoyed. Hope to cya around more often

Great job. She sounds like she's going to be an interesting character. I love the tone of this piece. You set a mood even before she speaks. Please do add your name to Mr. Linky so the others can find you.

Great wordzzle smm - I saw your comment to Raven's post but didn't see you in Mr. Linky. Make sure you enter there, this is a fun story that everyone should see.

And you're going to continue it! That's cool, a few of us have done that and now I'm hooked on all the characters.

Interesting start I must say.. waiting for the later part.Could you break out their dialogues.. it would be easier to read.. :)!

That's quite a partnership the lady and the cat have!

i am curious to know how it turns out.

Raven: Hey thanks for the encouragement. I shall add my name to Mr. Linky today

Dianne: Yup Raven also told me too add my name to Mr. Linky. I shall do that today

Anu: The Wordzzle is supposed to strictly be a paragraph, so I don't think I can break out the dialogues :)

Keshi: Thanks. Coming from you, that's quite a compliment

Jeff B: Something different :)

Utopia: I say again that you should be doing this
