Sad, but true.

03 Mar

Even as a bairn I was never a sylph, for my torpid inanition brought on a terrible dudgeon and my fear of being overtaken by immediate syncope always led me to eat a Snickers bar.

Our words this week are:
torpid
torpor
syncope
inanition
dudgeon
bairn
sylph

    My sympathy for the bairn, Oliver, increased with every page as I read about the inanition which inevitably led to torpor and possibly even syncope where he may have dreamed of sylph-like angels rescuing him from his earthly fate and removing him from dudgeon forever.

      Extra points for using the words to describe classic literature.

    Trying to convince my torpid bairn to work on her school project put me in high dudgeon for this child claimed syncope may occur do to her inanition which I quickly relieved with a snack, thus allowing her to turn magically into a compliant sylph who immersed herself in the task.

      I liked the Oliver version very much: cheers for basing your sentence on a previous novel.
