3 Word Thursday – A New Old Fairy Tale

Today is Thursday so we use Quilly’s three archaic words to tell stories.

Today's words are:


facinorous: extremely wicked
extirpate: destroy completely; wipe out; surgically remove
hebdomadal: weekly; every seven days
02Thumbelina had a hebdomadal routine that the Snow Fairy interrupted. That facinorous fey caused a blizzard to ravage Thumbelina’s neighborhood. Thumbelina looked out her window at the storm keeping her inside. She spotted a bird lying on the ground. The Snow Fairy had tried to extirpate all living things and it looked like she had at least one victim. Thumbelina wondered if she could bring the bird back to life.

Hans Christian Andersen’s Thumbelina.

It gave me the willies to let it go on air with all of the mistakes it in.

    I hope Thumbelina can help the poor bird -- it doesn't look too well at all.

  8. I've been concerned for the little birds throughout this snow mess we've had, but I have to be resigned to the fact that some of them just will.not.survive. I'm just glad they haven't died where I can see them! Well done, Nessa!

  12. A great piece, but even more so because I don't think my comfort level would be good enough to use them. I think I need a word of the day calendar.
