Words for Wednesday

Here are the words and a photo for this week, at Elephant's Child's blog.

This week's prompts are:
  1. thin
  2. frightened
  3. scratch
  4. wealthy
  5. flowery
  6. sulky 


  1. stove
  2. unwieldy
  3. fearless
  4. zoo
  5. price
  6. inquisitive

Looking out the rather thin window from the lake house, the lonely wealthy man saw the fog over the water. It made him scratch his head, figuratively, while inquisitively glancing at the fog. He did feel fearless enough, however, to want to go out to the water, despite the fog. 

While continuing to look outside, he heard a crash in the kitchen near the stove. Frightened, he looked behind him to see the thin flowery vase had fallen into the space between the stove and the refrigerator. He was devastated. He'd gotten the vase at such a high price at a zoo gift shop. He tried to move the unwieldy refrigerator but was unable to do so. He tried not to get sulky about it, though. It was a price he had to pay. 

He then looked out the window again, then sat down. 


  1. I am so sorry for that poor man. I wouldn't have been sulky, I would have been in tears. Thanks for joining us again. The emotion in your story rang true for me. Great job.

  2. Something breaking unexpectedly. A metaphor for so much more.

  3. I especially like the fog over the water.
