Wordzzles are little Word Puzzles gifted to us weekly by Raven at Views From Ravenâ€™s Nest.Â Raven presents these puzzles in the form of lists, which we must unravel and expand into a story.Â This week, pressed for time, I bundled all the words together and used them in one short (mega) story.
Raven chose the words — phrases actually — for this 5oth Wordzzle from the blog names and/or taglines of her regular players.Â Â I am honored to be included in such a talented group of bloggers.
So, without further ado —
The Scavenger Hunt
Nonsense is ubiquitous and insanity prevails in the Fortress at Pigeon Falls.Â Today the Freemasons are having a scavenger hunt.Â I asked, “What are they supposed to be finding, Pam?”Â She said, “They seem to be after everything and nothing!Â It’s a wild goose chase.”Â “Oh,” I said while peeking again into the envelope I’d found under the cherry tree, “Are you sure they’re not looking for plane tickets?”
Just then one of the Freemasons yelled, “Do you see what I see?“Â He pointed at a raven’s nest and a guy wearing a t-shirt bearing the slogan, It’s all about bloggers, climbed to the top of the cherry tree and grabbed the nest.Â He carried it to the ground and they tore it apart.
Then everybody started talking and yelling and carrying on so much that even though I tried really (well, sort of) hard, I wasn’t getting a word in edgewise, so I just got in my car and drove away.Â There might have been a bit of a smile on my face.Â This grandmother of five is working at shortening the distance between herself and a calm. blue, Pacific Paradise.
