Wordle #179 – The Actor


This week’s words: Pig Stow Limbo Malaise Tick Cordate ((adj.) heart-shaped) Mental Soliloquize ((v.) talk to oneself) Aghast Accountability Transition Ligament

The actor breathed deeply as his big moment arrived. The audience was hushed, expectant as he began the most important soliloquy in the play.

To soliloquize at this stage of the play required him to transition from good guy to bad guy. So nervous was he the tick in his neck became more and more pronounced. It caused such violent head movements he was soon snorting like a pig but still the audience clung to his every word.

He knew in his heart of hearts, which right now was as cordate as it would ever be that the audience held him to a degree of accountability.

Stuff this up, show some mental failing and his career may well be over.

“I’ve stowed away my love,” he soliloquized, “ the malaise (snort) of you not being in my life has left me floundering in a limbo of my own making (grunt). I cling to the hope the ligament that joins us (snort) will be strong and unbreakable. I know this malaise (snort) will fade, I shall see you again I know, (snort snort) in future days, when we shall find our cord (snort) ated love enough to lift us from the tortuous limbo I find myself in.(grunt)

He paused as the audience aghast at his performance drew breath themselves before breaking into rapturous applause.
