Quandary Resolutions by Zegrze

  • #5733 submitted 03/07/2015: tumulus, phillumenist, dyspepsia, phillumenist

    Phillumeny, not cookery, was his thing: the gastric violence of his vindaloos often left him with the gross discomfort of dyspepsia in his stomach as it bulged tumulus-like, and in said condition he dared not play with his beloved matches for fear of accidental self-immolation of a most explosive nature, surely an ironic way for a phillumenist to go .

  • #5731 submitted 03/06/2015: tumulus, begorra, eolian, circumvolve

    The faintly blasphemous, but in this case forgivable begorra was the first word that began to circumvolve in his mind repeatedly, begorra, begorra, begorra, it went around as Brendan first saw the tumulus of ancient and holy loam that should have been covering the prehistoric resting place of his ancient forefathers, had, through a strange yet surely natural eolian process, been sculpted by the very wind itself from a simple mound into a coiled, two-headed serpent of silt and sand that to all intents and purposes appeared to be the barrow's new guardian.
