Quandary Resolutions by mike meter

  • #6204 submitted 01/10/2016: peeps, constraint, ignominious, cineaste

    My peeps are ignominious men who have many opinions without constraint: we debate the Hateful Eight and Quentin Tarantino, the last great cineaste.

  • #5655 submitted 12/05/2014: mansuetude, archeress, deride, clairaudience

    The handsome dude, without pants, who's nude, surprisingly exuded his mansuetude, despite the archeress making an obvious attempt to deride the guy, but little did she know  in all honestness, he's heard it all before; his clairaudience taught him patience and modestness, two qualities the archeress should aim for.

  • #5526 submitted 02/28/2014: palmer, compere, cheeseparing, deipnosophist

    Sir Chelsey Chesterford, a cheeseparing compere and a Type A deipnosophist, was a pitiful palmer who tried a trick in which he would attempt to get every single seven and six out of the deck so incredibly quick that he would throw it in the air, and grip in his fist, each one before the rest hit the bricks, and just as he did, in an incredible twist this chick went to slap him and missed -- of course she got arrested for this, but not before 44 cards kissed the bricks.

  • #5465 submitted 01/22/2014: perse, enthesis, jaunty, idem

    In less than two sentences, too much emphasis was placed upon the enthesis of the jaunty nurse who announced that the winner's purse would be given to the first woman whose purse was perse, which came across as idem at first.

  • #5428 submitted 01/06/2014: repletion, at first blush, behest, terminus

    Beginning at the terminus, while the worm  was squirming, my stomach's behest  to eat the writhing insect was calmed by an old woman who offered me a Hershey's kiss; at first blush, I didnt know what to say, but now satified beyond repletion, I gave the woman the worm and she proceeded to eat him.

  • #5215 submitted 10/07/2013: furfuraceous, croggy, incarcerate, picaro

    I met an old picaro woman who gave me a croggy to dodge the hambones who wished to incarcerate me--even though she seemed a bit furfuraceous, she helped me escape my potential captors.

  • #5211 submitted 10/05/2013: shrift, amber, sleuth, whirligig

    The sinisterly stealhy sleuth with otherworldy curly hair stepped out of the whirligig while slipping his amber shades over his eyes, preparing to enter the church, postponing the search to complete the holy polar shrift.
