Hebdomadal Plus

30 Jun

My family grew corn, not greengages, but technically they were still pomologists, and the pigs we raised made quite an effluvia; we didn’t have chatelaines for our keys because our houses didn’t have locks, we weren’t feckless, just trusting; we didn’t add osmazomes to our food, it didn’t need anything false; no silk foulards adorned our heads, just well-seasoned caps; and there were no tocsins to let us know of incoming bad weather, you just hit the basement at the sight of swirling clouds, because even a wag knew that you didn’t joke around with a tornado.

Here are all of the Madame Bovary words to date. Don’t feel like you need to use them all, or put them in one sentence.
feckless
wag
foulard
chatelaines
greengages
osmazomes
effluvia
pomology
toscins

      Thank you. It’s a good thing most of them were from that agricultural chapter.
