Worddzle Time

Posted by SMM on 09:38
The words for this week's Wordzzle are tiramisu, transfixed, evacuation, Queen of the Nile, pillowcase, grammatical, voice inflection, pacified, micro climate, swami. For those of you who are not familiar with Wordzzle...you can refer to Raven's blog.

Here's my two bits for this week (Sorry I ended up missing last week's Wordzzle. Was traveling.)  

I entered the shabby room once more, this time with firm determination in my heart that I would ask the Old Horse my query and solve the mystery once and for all. The Old Horse was transfixed to the television watching some programme about micro-climate and flooding of the Nile. I took my swami's name and with a sudden voice inflection which perhaps belied my anxiety spoke up "Listen lady.....".

But would she let me complete . Oh No !!! Gawd the Old Horse would even try Swamiji's patience. "It is all this global warming and population. Population is the botheration of all nations for generation after generation. See now there is flooding all over. The UN is carrying out the  evacuation of all people who live on the banks of the Nile. You know I took a trip on the 'Queen of the Nile' sometime back. I met a sheikh there who wanted me to become his third wife. He promised me the moon and the stars. There was also a nice Indian gentleman on board. Both would compete for my affections."

Her eyes took on a dreamy look as she went back into those days.  "Did you get my tiramisu?"

"Tiramisu. Ol...errr Ma'm you never said nothing about tiramisu. you only ordered me to go get you a silver photoframe and a portion of wings."

I was just so irritated I didn't even make any attempt to give a dignified pacified reply which I ought to have made, since I was the one who needed information from her.

"You just made a grammatical error son." She stood  up slowly and I saw a cushion covered in an oversized pillowcase on her chair. I suddenly started missing home and my own clean lovely comfortable bed. I just wanted to turn tail and run home into my grandmother's arms. I couldn't do that. It was for her sake that I had come here to find out if there was any truth in the old family rumour. 
 For new readers here are my previous links (since I'v finally figured out how to create a link now):
Part IV


Love it, love it, love it!

If I was free I'd like to meet a Sheikh and be promised the moon and the stars! ;)

Akelamalu...I'd love to be promised the moon and the stars too.But I really wouldn't want to be the third wife

Yes, you're quite right, the other wives would have to go! :)

Welcome back. You've got my interest. I can't wait to find out what comes next and what IS the family rumor. I love the humor of your writing.

'would even try a Swami's patience' - I loved that.
Well done. Can hardly wait to see where this goes.

The "Old Horse", is that an English term of affection? Interesting story.


I remember how thrilled I was when I first figured out how to link, took me a bit :)

Hope your travels were good.

Love your story, I'm so interested in what happens next.

Ohhhhh dear! I never knew such big trouble could come from one tiny little grammatical error! I'll be back next week to find out what happens!

once again u've amazed me SMM!



Akelamalu: Absolutely, I demand not only the sun and the moon and the stars in the sky, but also the sole and whole undying love. I am quite demanding as a wife :P

Raven: Thanks for having me back.As for the family rumour it all depends on the next set of words you give :P

Carletta: Like I told Raven, it all depends on the next set of words

Richard: Thanks...as for 'Old Horse' no idea if its an English term of affection. I am Indian - I just used it where I thought it fit

Dianne: Yup even I was pretty excited when I figured out finally how to link (hence five links in this post :P)

As for my travels well the whole trip just seemed to be jinxed.

Cya next week :)

Melli: Welcome to my blog :)

My English teacher would make these huge red marks all over our papers if we dared make a grammatical error. I still get nightmares from those days. hence the exaggeration :P

Cya next week

Thanks Keshi :)

oh my god--cleverly done.
I must try my hand at this sometime..If only there were 48 hours in a day--sigh

PS: You certainly should try it once...it would certainly be you cup of chai :)
