Quandary Resolutions by flummerist

  • #3123 submitted 08/26/2011: penurious, kibitz, colloquial, proclitic

    I couldn't help but giggle at the amount of proclitics used as the two old penurious ladies kibitzed away, saying " 'twas only a small stone in the ring, and  'twasn't worth but about the price of an apple, but 'tis true that he stupidly paid a small fortune for it!"

  • #3120 submitted 08/25/2011: losel, walrus, whirligig, footle

    The walrus is a very losel species whose favorite activity is to footle its time away playing with a whirligig.
