Today's words are:
facinorous: extremely wicked
extirpate: destroy completely; wipe out; surgically remove
hebdomadal: weekly; every seven days
Thumbelina had a hebdomadal routine that the Snow Fairy interrupted. That facinorous fey caused a blizzard to ravage Thumbelina’s neighborhood. Thumbelina looked out her window at the storm keeping her inside. She spotted a bird lying on the ground. The Snow Fairy had tried to extirpate all living things and it looked like she had at least one victim. Thumbelina wondered if she could bring the bird back to life.
Hans Christian Andersen’s Thumbelina.
It gave me the willies to let it go on air with all of the mistakes it in.
Darn that snow fairy anyway! What did those poor little birds do to her?ReplyDelete
This is brilliant. Well done. Again.ReplyDelete
What a great story my friend. Very well done and written and the words are just perfect. I hope Thumbelina hurrys :)ReplyDelete
Aw, poor bird. I did not even know some of those words existed.;)Your writing is so artistic.;)ReplyDelete
I think it's dead. But Thumbelina could feast on it.ReplyDelete
So how's the weather there? LOLReplyDelete
I hope Thumbelina can help the poor bird -- it doesn't look too well at all.
Poor littl bird.... what will Thumbelina do now?ReplyDelete
I've been concerned for the little birds throughout this snow mess we've had, but I have to be resigned to the fact that some of them just will.not.survive. I'm just glad they haven't died where I can see them! Well done, Nessa!ReplyDelete
Poor wee critter. Mayhap Thumbelina can breathe life into her...ReplyDelete
aww, poor thing! it looks done in :(ReplyDelete
this gives another perspective to andersen's story
Also, I 've got an award for you for bringing a little sunshine into my life.
A great piece, but even more so because I don't think my comfort level would be good enough to use them. I think I need a word of the day calendar.ReplyDelete
poor bird! great post :)ReplyDelete
this was great entwining Thumbelina into a 3 word Thursday tale, loved it VanessaReplyDelete
That is spectacular. You are an amazing writer. What a story.ReplyDelete
Poor little birdie. Maybe we need a new law to extirpate all bad fairies.ReplyDelete
Clever, Nessa! And I'm sure Thumbelina can help the bird. :)ReplyDelete
What will Thumbelina do? Great writing.ReplyDelete
Got a FABULOUS AWARD just for you!ReplyDelete
Come over and claim it!
Poor wee bird.ReplyDelete
