I am a little late in getting this posted.
Here are the ten words from last Thursday’s challenge:
- Coral – A rock-like deposit consisting of the calcareous skeletons
- Vile – Loathsome; disgusting
- Absinthe – A green liqueur having a bitter anise or licorice flavor and a high alcohol content
And the following is my attempt in inverse order (5 is 1st, 6 is 2nd, 4 is 3rd, 7 is 4th, etc.):
An Embarrassing Situation
While drinking absinthe to whip up his courage to deal with cleaning up the vile fruits of their illicit passion, Arthur noticed a faint glitter in the distance.
He failed to search his soul before deciding to report the sight. If he had performed such a search, he might have realized it was just a shield around the coral reef. He had just unnecessarily brought attention to the messy food fight, for which he and his fellow gluttonous seahorses were responsible.
Moral: Do not leap to conclusions, as they can cause great embarrassment.
