100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #7

this weeks challenge was to work in one or more of the prompt words or there definitions into a writing piece, the words where quite new to me but I don’t think I will be alone in that as they are words that are removed from the Concise Oxford English Dictionary to make room for the new and because they are not used (generally) any more. this are the words, with there definitions:

Brabble – paltry, noisy quarrel

Growlery – place to growl, private room, den

Foozle – do clumsily, bungle, make a mess of

and this is my piece (I have a 100 words plus the prompt words)

Betty and Bert

Betty and Bert had a brabble, everyone heard.

After quite some shouting, Betty stormed away.

Vanished into her growlery and sulked all day.

Bert was quite upset cause she refused to come out.

Apologist 300 times for every single shout.

But Betty was quite stubborn and very cross

so she sat there for days, just to get her point across

Bert begged for forgiveness, in front of that closed door.

But she wasn’t satisfied, until he was kneeling on the floor.

Betty came out the room, looked him in the eye

stop to foozle about now she said and wear that pretty tie.
