Mallory Works On

It is a Quilly day. Time to take Quilly’s three words for the day and write a story.Today we have three words from Quilly Click on the word for a definition:

The 3WT #30 words will be: tenellous; utible; & nubivagant.
All of Quilly's words may be found HERE

Detective Mallory watched as the hang glider flew like a nubivagant bird over the courthouse. For a moment it took his mind off the fact the DA had told him to go ahead with his investigation as it might make her case more utible but she was going ahead with the indictment of Josh. He was at the courthouse to present evidence that would lead to that indictment. He didn’t want to be there Josh was one of his oldest fiends and he had a tenellous spot for the guy but you did what the job required. If he wanted to help Josh it would not be by preventing an indictment but by finding out who did the murder before the trial and he fully intended to do that.
Judith had given him a description of the guy who paid her in cash to chase Josh. He had her sit down with an artist friend, they didn’t have a police sketch artist, and she described him and the artist tried to sketch the man from her description. The results were not at all promising.
But then Mallory remembered the guy had approached her in the bar and the bar had security cameras. If he was lucky he might get a look at him on the tape from that day. He immediately went to the bar and pulled the tape for the day of the supposed meeting . He was in luck. There was the man meeting with Judith and the picture was clear enough for an identification. The identification came as a real shock. It was the third victim the investment broker Hudson Smith. Whoever was behind all of this had tied up a loose end.
Detective Mallory was back to square one. He had not a single clue as to who was behind all of this. His crime board had lots of things on it but he couldn’t put them together in any way that pointed to the killer.
He decided he needed to clear his head so he went for a walk which just happened to end at the tragematopolist where he bought a pound of head clearing chocolates.
There had to be something he was missing.
To be continued next Thursday

And of course with Quilly's words comes the required quivel.
There is poetry which a few people do well.
Then there is poetic drivel which is more fun and has its own experts.
But below them all is Quivel
Remember to write quivel you must write something that looks like a poem, any style , but is so bad that if it was printed in a book of poetry a true poetic zoilist would tear it out and burn it.
In other words if it contains Quilly's words and looks like a really bad poem it is really good Quivel. Here then is today's quivel.

At Last He Flies

A utible thing a glider is
This one was really his
His nubivagant dreams
And his flying schemes
Were coming true
Soaring in the blue
This despite his tenellous butt
And the feeling in his gut

Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.

Shoot...a dead end. I so thought that tape would provide him so good info. I can't wait to see where he proceeds now :)

What Thom said -- and you are certainly honing your Quivel skills. That one was especially good. [...if it contains Quilly's words and looks like a really bad poem it is really good Quivel. Here then is today's quivel.]

I like the idea of clearing his head with chocolates...yum! Now back to square one...

And the quivel is perfect!

I definitely need to clear my head with chocolate!

I have every confidence that he will find what is missing - once he's got over the choc overload, that is.

Ah, head-clearing chocolates should work! But this mystery's proving quite a tangled web...

Good luck to his tenellous butt!
(LOL-I loooove it!)

Oh DARN! I was really hoping that tape was going to lead to good news! What a shame...

Speaking of utible gliders and flying schemes -- did you hear on the news today about the kid in Colorado and the Balloon!? LOL! LIFE is getting stranger than Pigeon Falls!
