I’m something of a loganamnosist* and this month I will resurrect as many obsolete words as I can within short pieces of flash fiction.
* (n) someone with an obsession for discovering long-forgotten words.
To start us off –
Absquatulate (v) to discreetly leave a gathering or party without informing the host.
Aliment (n) food; nourishment.
Oh no! Look what I’ve done. I don’t think anyone noticed, at least I hope not. But honestly, serving red wine at a party in a room with a white carpet is asking for trouble. Someone’s bound to spill some. Don’t you dare rat on me!
Actually, it looks quite pretty, almost as if it’s meant to be there. If I drip a drop more just there, and a dribble to the right, it’ll look like a pretty rose. Then if I accidentally drop some of that green guacamole dippy stuff and tread on it, it’ll have some leaves! Shall I? No one’s looking, so here goes!
Hey, that’s great; a magnificent work of art!
Time to grab a handful of aliment and absquatulate methinks. Disappear like that graffiti artist that paints pictures on walls without being seen. What’s his name? Banksy, that’s him.
Just think, one day this carpet will be worth a fortune. The Rose: Artist unknown!
Tomorrow’s words :-
Bosky, bombinate, brannigan and bifurcate
