Three Word Thursday

This is hosted Quilly's Pacific Paradise, and we use antique words in (hopefully) wild and wonderful ways. Stop by Quilly's place to check out all of the creative geniuses.

This week's words:
  • jussulent – adj – full of broth or soup
  • tenebrous – adj – dark and gloomy
  • ebullient – adj – overflowing with fervor, enthusiasm, or excitement; high-spirited: The award winner was in an ebullient mood at the dinner in her honor.

The Misadventures of Malcontent Myrtle Macintosh

Myrtle woke up in the morning not quite sure where she was. As soon as she started to move, she felt an intense throbbing in her head. She could feel her pulse in the bridge of her nose. Collapsing back onto the couch as she rubbed her temples, she tried to remember what happened last night.

She began to look around the tenebrous room. She felt the dark a blessing, as any light would be excruciating in her current condition. As she saw the bar and the darkened chandeliers, she cringed with the memory of her ebullient antics. At least she hadn’t danced on the bar or swung from the chandelier, Myrtle thought with a sigh of relief.

She was startled when suddenly a jussulent mug was thrust in her face. The scent of the chicken broth was soothing, but the deep voice was ominous.

“You sure did put on a show.”

(Episode 1)

And for next week's words ... sublunary; comity; & specious.

(ETA: I should probably credit the photo, eh? It is Grace Kelly in High Society. Her character happens to be quite smashed in this scene.)


Very nicely done. I so love a continuing story. Might she be a real jezabelle? Good story!

Uh, oh. What did she do? Can't wait to find out? I'm on the edge of my seat.

Thom: One never knows. In fact, I don't think I know yet. LOL

Nessa: Tune in next week ... same Bat-time, same Bat-blog. :)

Oh! Oh! Is it her dad? Her husband? A total stranger? Hurry next Thursday!
