Three Word Thursday #10

Welcome to Three Word Thursday #10. This week, joining the quondam word-list, we have sublunary, comity, &  specious. We also have a whole list of perspicacious writers. If you enjoy reading my story, leave a comment then click on the names of the other players and go see how they used the words. You’ll be entertained (and possibly educated) all at once.


Copper realized his reasoning was specious.  He had no proof that two different poisonings were perpetrated by two different criminals at the same time, in the same place, and in the same manner.  In fact, if he tried to promote that theory with nothing more to go on then his gut instinct, the chief would probably throw him out of his office, and rightly so.  Still, Copper took some comfort in the knowledge that Adrian Burnette, a homicide detective from  Reisling County, had also voiced suspicions that more than one perp was involved.  In the spirit of comity, Copper had called the authorities in both Reisling and Merlot county.

Just then the sliver bat wing doors swung inward and Officer Marsh strolled in with a newspaper under his arm.  “Who’s at the hospital?”  Copper asked.

“The chief and a half-a-dozen uniforms for crowd control.”  Marsh pulled the newspaper out and unfurled it so Copper could see the headline.  Sublunary Killer Strikes Again.

(No silver bats were shorn of their wings for the sake of this story.)

My apologies to Raven and the Wordzzle crowd.  That’s to Uncle Sam and his midnight deadline, I did not have time to use the remaining Wordzzle words.  I will try to do better next time!

Three Word Thursday #11:

Every Thursday I will give you three new words.  You have until the following Thursday to compose a story using all three of the words.  Then, on that following Thursday, post your story.  After you post, come by here and sign in to Mr. Linky.  If you sign in and don’t post a story.  I will delete your link.

The Week  Eleven words will be: antediluvian; prolix; & ineluctable

Got it?  Good!  In that case:  Your story is due on:  April 23rd, 2009

(Oh!  And if anybody else has tripped across the perfect word and wants to send me one, or two, or three, I’ll throw them in the word basket and post them when I pick them!)


  1. This case is getting to me. Now I look forward to Thursday for the next exciting installment.
    The extra Dr. John in the linksy is Jeff’s fault. It can’t be mine.

    Dr. John’s last blog post..Real Senator

  2. Good afternoon, Quilly. Having just read your story I must say… zzzzZZZzzz. I only got about 3 1/2 hours sleep last night, so am feeling a wee bit tired. In fact, my head is buzzzzzzing. I think I enjoyed your story, but can’t actually be sure. I think I must give in and lay down for a wee nap. Then I shall return and reread.

    I hope my story makes sense, having written the last of it in this state. Ahhhh, at least it’s up, hehehe.

  3. Thom — I think I’m confusing you all. Time for a recap, I think.

    Jientje — I love it when you do story pictures.

    Dr. John — you’re right — Jeff came to my blog and left a link with your name and address. He’s trying to convince you that you have Alzheimer’s.

    Doug — you got to that once before OC did!

    Melli — no, just finally the headlines from the last one! We’re only a few hours into this case, despite the reading being so strung out.

    Raven — whatever works. I don’t know who the crazy lady is who thinks up these words, but she needs to slack off a bit on the weird stuff.

    OJM — time is also in short supply.

    Juliana — rumor has it that it was some lady named Sybil.

    Cherie — just don’t accept any wine from strangers for the time being, okay?

    Nessa — Cabernet Sauvignon is one of my favorites.

    Alice — judging by your comment, I’d say you need a nap.
