Quandary Resolutions by mediaprophet

  • #558 submitted 01/05/2010: gauntlet, mettle, myrmidon, atelier

    Divorce court can test a judge, especially when the accusations -- built in the slimy law-crafter's atelier by a cruel two-hundred-an-hour myrmidon of some vitriol-twisted ex-to-be -- stray toward insanity and drunkenness; a brutal gauntlet, beginning with exaggeration and running to prevarication and (all-too-frequently) altercation, to test the mettle of a green adjudicate.

  • #505 submitted 12/24/2009: onomatomania, unobtrusively, malleable, lambent

    He stood there, the camera unobtrusively tucked under his arm in the rain; and in my malleable mental state he convinced me that it wasn't recording, while I yammered on and on like an onomatomaniac about the lambent bolts dancing across the thunderheads so -- no pun intended -- shockingly.

  • #498 submitted 12/23/2009: clinquant, astraphobia, dulse, baptism of fire

    As I understand it, ma'am, these accusations of dipsomania began on a stormy beach vacation -- a cruel baptism of fire for a new bride with astraphobia -- the end result being this video your husband has; showing you, intoxicated, emerging from the sea-foam like Aphrodite, covered in clinquant dulse, reflecting the sky-fire like Christmas tinsel on a delirious, drunken conifer.

  • #489 submitted 12/22/2009: dipsomania, altruistic, veracity, collude

    Don't worry, m'am; I know an altruistic organization that will collude with the office of the public defender to challenge the veracity of these accusations of dipsomania.
