Wordle #196 – He Was Sure It Was Alice


This week’s challenge: Parka Raise Security Absorption Offend Nearby Bewilder Matchbook Abrasion Semicircle Noticeable Alice and Wonderland Syndrome

He was sure it was Alice looking up at him as he was looking down. Who else could it be he asked himself.

There she was at the bottom of the hole, in her red parka raising an arm in greeting. It had been a while since he’d seen her and now that security was being beefed up after the Mad Hater incident it was a surprise to see her there.

For a brief second he remembered the Doctors and their discussion of the Alice In Wonderland Syndrome but he dismissed it as nonsense as there before him was Alice, there was no mistake about it.

He absorbed the moment and was thrilled to see once again that it was Alice he was looking at. So not wishing to offend her in any way he made his way down the hole and stood before her grinning like a Cheshire cat.

Nearby and looking somewhat bewildered was the Cheshire Cat, fiddling with a red matchbook and occasionally flicking matches as they struck the flint lighter.

Alice, he thought looked noticeably aged since he last saw her and there were a series of abrasions on her arms.

She at first appeared a little irritated by his arrival, but she soon warmed to him and invited him to follow her, as she was late, very late, for a most important date.

They burst through a large wooden door and stood in the centre of a room around which was an unusual looking semicircle of furry animals such as rabbits, hares, beavers and in the centre a very haughty and cross-looking tortoise.

With all eyes upon them, he boy stepped back and wondered at that precise moment with so many beady eyes looking at him if there wasn’t some truth in the doctors claim he was, in fact, suffering Alice in Wonderland syndrome.
