Wordle #190 – The Bride of Learning


This week’s fab words: Unthinkable Thread Bend Minatory (adj.)) menacing, threatening) Social Pen Impasse Bride Erudite (adj.)) characterized be great knowledge, learned, scholarly) Underneath Scatter Thirst

She was the bride of learning, and it was unthinkable that her thirst for knowledge would in any way dry up.

But it did.

She sat pen in hand, her mind at an impasse it had not previously been at.

Her mind was suddenly without a thread of direction as if all sense and scholarly learning had been scattered to the four winds.

In the dark recesses of her mind, she sensed a predator, a minatory thought threatening to undermine her entire sense of self.

She was deeply troubled that her usually reliable erudite self had deserted her. She was struggling to put two thoughts together as if her mind had been bent out of shape and no amount of bending was going to rectify her current situation.

She thought she would go to social media as surely there she would find some possible solution.

She called for help, some assistance, some guidance to help lift her from her current non-eruditedness. It was all to no avail as underneath it all she felt the presence of the minator of knowledge working its way with minatory precision to dry up all sense of knowledge and understanding.

The unthinkable was happening, she was descending into urban ignorance.

    We were going in the same direction, except your story is set in modern times with social media, Michael. An enjoyable piece.

    Too much cell phone usage will do that to a person. 😉

    Oh, I know how she feels — except I am very unsociable with social media. So, I have descended into just plan ignorance.
    Hope she gets her words back — sometimes a butterfly net helps.
