Ninety-two words

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is …




In any situation, good, bad or middling, Dominic stands head and shoulders above the rest. Not literally, he’s only five-foot-six tall but he always takes control with aplomb, though sometimes in a bombastic manner!

We were discussing fruit, don’t ask why! Aplombic Dominic stood up and delivered a lecture on their health benefits. Oh, to have had a plumb to stick in his mouth!

There was a problem in the pub last night and we nominated Dinky Dom to confront Lanky Landlord Len.

You should have seen his face! Aplomb gone Dom?
