Worddzle Time

with 18 comments

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):
