Today’s weird words!
Wildered – went astray
Ween – think or suppose, be of the opinion
Whence – from what place
Whereagainst – against which
Whitherward – toward what or which place
Whereout – out of which
Wanion – ill-luck, misfortune
Just fifty minutes until my job interview. I mustn’t be late. I checked the address on the letter and set off. Five minutes later I wildered and became totally lost.
I asked a passing priest for help. “Walk witherward St Peter’s church, turn left and it’s on your right,” he said. I thanked him, crossed myself and trotted off. Five minutes later I was lost again.
I spotted a chap on a bench swigging from a can of beer and asked him for directions. “Walk to the Flying Fish, hic, from whence you turn right, hic, and it’s there” he slurred. Five minutes later… you guessed!
I stopped a little old lady. ”See the retirement home?” she squeaked, “turn left there, left, and left again and I ween you’ll see it”. Five minutes later I was back where I started!
Whereagainst all odds, I eventually made it and got the job!
On the way back I donated some cash to a retirement home, said a prayer of thanks in St Peter’s church whereout I popped to the Flying Fish for a celebratory drink.
Twenty minutes later I stepped outside, tripped, and had the wanion to fall flat on my face.
“Can you direct me to the emergency department?” I asked a passing stranger.
