Quilly 34

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 #34 words will be:suffarcinate; spiscious; & tristifical
All of Quilly's words may be found HERE

Light at Last?
Detective Mallory looked at his tristifical clue board that had lead to his days of grieving. But now he had added another board and suffarcinated it with new clues. There were the phone records of the three victims. There was the common number that appeared on all three sets of records in both their incoming and outgoing calls.
Mallory felt really alive as some things began to come together. The number belonged to the “ Ostrich Development Corporation”. The owner of that corporation was hidden . It was owned by a dummy corporation that was owned by a dummy corporation. Somebody was covering his tracks well.
So Mallory called in some favors and finally ended up with the name of the one man on top the pyramid . It was Alexander Foxco, the great Oil Tycoon.
Then Mallory went to the jail to talk to Josh. He asked him if there was oil on his property. Josh said “ I don’t think so unless that spiscious dark stuff that floats on the little pond is oil.
Now Mallory was sure he knew the killer or at least who paid the killer but proving it was something else. All the potential witnesses were the victims . Everything he had was conjecture.
But he went to the DA anyway. She laughed at him. Told him his friendship was clouding his judgment. She was going ahead and putting Josh on trial.
Going back to the office and acting on a gut level hunch he pulled the DA’s phone records., which if she ever fpound out would give her ample cause to fire him.
But what he expected to find he found. Now he needed a plan.

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.

A Sad Goodbye

It was a tristifical day in the neighborhood
Mr. Rogers was gone for good
Suffarcinated his train and rode away
Spiscious tears were shed that day
His risible words no longer spoken
Our little hearts were broken
On that really hitonious day
When Mr. Rogers went away

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

Hooray! Things are looking up. Mallory will sort it all out legally and save Josh.

I still miss Mr. Rogers and get all tristifical whenever I think of him.

I heard a story yesterday on NPR that spoke about how our cell phones, when on, tell law enforcement (or anyone else who wants to tap into it) exactly where we are...creepy

But your use of the words was not creepy! Well done and I hope Mallory excoriates that DA!

Good grief, not the DA too? The more he discovers the deeper it gets.... good luck Mallory!!

When we were in America this summer I wanted to go to Pittsburgh to see the Mr. Roger's Neighbourhood exhibit---well, hopefully next year! The kids will love it, but for the grown-ups it may be very tristifical indeed.

Mallory is very smart. I'm sure he's going to get to the bottom of this very soon :)
