Quilly's Word Challenge#4

The Week Four words will be: apanthropinization; paucity & zither

Combined Quilly& Raven Story:
Apanthropinization was Lister Morts life choice. He lived in Siberia with a paucity of world goods except a zither which he played for entertainment. His shelter a small hut was in need of a roofer.
Lister was playing his zither, when his hut began to shake. The door blew open and and a penguin stood facing him. He shook his head and looked again and sure enough there was a penguin at his door. A penguin holding a piece of paper in it's beak .Lister thought the penguin hopping up and down indicated the penguin wanted him to take the paper. He grabbed the paper.
There was a small shamrock printed in the corner,and a message.
Dear Mr Lister,
Would you honor me with your presence at my home to present a concert for my friends. Your zither playing is known all over the world. There is a hot air balloon outside your residence to start your journey. In the basket on the balloon are some citrus fruits lacking from your diet I am sure. Follow the humming penguin.
Sincerely Sandy Shore
The penguin began humming "Twinkle twinkle little star." Lister Mort life took a new direction as he found he could not say no and followed the penguin.

Oh, this is lots of fun. I can't wait to see what happens next. I am following the penguin, too - he's a frozen pied piper.

This was a wonderful new twist to Sandy's story. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Great story Betty...I loved it. The Penquin is like Dr. John's Leprechaun

Raven said...

Well done. I love that penguin! And you have already done your wordzzle! I haven't even thought about that yet, but yikes! - it's Thursday already. Oh, dear.

great. i'm growing fond of the penguin :)

Melli said...

THAT is amazing! When an apanthropinizatic (lol!) gentlemen CHOOSES to abandon his lifestyle to chase a humming penguin... Sandy Shore could be the ONLY one responsible! I hope she makes this a fundraiser and collects millions for the Save The Penguins Federation!

lol, I think if a humming penguin and a hot air balloon came to get me and whisk me away on an adventure, I could not say no either. Such fun.

Wow - all those words in one - what an accomplishment!
I made it through the mini this week and don't attempt Quilly's words. :)
I'm hoping I find a hot air balloon waiting for me when I wake up!
Really nice job.
