Such a Bore

I love this woman
She’s one of the best
But the prompts she gives us
I swear are a test
Not of our encyclopaedic knowledge
But how we’ll use the word
That’s not like the rest
Take today’s vellichor
To say of old bookshops would be a bore

48 words written for Sammi’s Weekend Word Prompt: Vellichor

    Excellent! I decided to read yours and Bill’s before writing mine… Something I don’t usually do but am glad I did as it has redirected me…

    Great take on the prompt. I’ll admit I was stumped by this one, but that’s half the fun 😁

    Well done, Crispina. Indeed, a challenge for us to manage.

  6. She does throw us a curved ball now and again, but they are usually in the dictionary, unlike this little devil! Great take and a spot-on picture.

    My 48!

  7. Dear Crispina,

    Sammi does send us scrambling for our dictionaries, doesn’t she? Never a bore, for shore. 😉 Good job.

    Shalom,
