Nursery Duty

14 Jul

The odalisques took so many baths to slake their desire for cleanliness that their amber shoulders became pruny and they surfeited water, so instead they picked up damascened sheers and put their pruniness to work in pruning and espaliering the garden trees in hope that their husbands would someday say “sta viator amabliem conjugem clacas or at least the shrubbery she worked so hard to sculpt.”

This is the end of the line for Madame Bovary vocabulary.  Give these words (and phrases) one last sentence:
slaking
odalisques
surfeit
damascene
espalier
sta viator amabliem conjugem calcas
