Wordle #92 “January 4, 2016” – Punitive Measures


This week’s words: Punitive Tepid Calendar Season Sad Arrhythmic (any disturbance in the rhythm of the heartbeat.) Cursive Tomorrow Swallow Aquamarine Affirmation Pulchritude (physical beauty; comeliness.)

‘Tis the season for punitive measures he said to himself rubbing his hands with glee.

The Christmas season was over, the New Year was starting and now he could have some fun with mankind having let them have that short period of relaxation and hope.

Firstly he thought looking at his calendar pinned to his wall, this year he had chosen the landmarks of Australia as his monthly visual feast, the month of February need a bit of boost.

H looked at the people milling around the town square in the town of Dungara, just to the north of Wheelabarraback and thought what a sad lot they were. They went through life in a state of tepidness never realising their potential in fact he wasn’t sure they knew what potential was.

One thing they did have in their favour he thought was that despite life’s hardships they did cling together and work harmoniously like a good cursive script. Then again he thought when you are born as losers you can only go up from there.

Tomorrow he decided the men in the town would all have an arrhythmic event…for no other reason than he liked to see the chaos it would bring to the Hospital. He had a thing about hospitals. It was where sick people went and it also was a place where doctors went who thought they could cure the sick. Not only that but they actively sought the affirmations of the community and one that that irked him was self-gratification.

He found it hard to swallow that Doctors could see so much in the little they did. As it was he had cleverly orchestrated the re-decorating of all their offices a vile aquamarine complete with stencilled sea horses rampant across each wall.

Added to that just to irritate them further he had increased the pulchritude of each tea lady to irresistibly alluring and so they went about the hospital panting after each tea lady in ways that raised the ire of the nursing staff and the tea ladies who took to serving them their tea in ways they would never like, too many sugars, no milk, too much milk and so forth.

For the tea ladies of course their own perception of their pulchritude meant they walked the hospital corridors in ways never seen before and it wasn’t long before a whole range of tea lady merchandise came out including a very popular naked tea lady calendar…..
