Response to prompt word RAMBUNCTIOUS in 6 Sentences Only by “Girlie on the Edge”

There are those that are very rambunctious among us. Their lives always full of tumultuous disorder. These unrestrained, uproarious disciples of chaotic clambering keep this earth clearly askew on its axis. I stridently search for a cacophony of silence amid the ever increasing din of raucous rollicking around me. Alas I find I’m once again thrown into the proverbial bed with a group of boisterous termagants. Until once again I can lay my head on my pillow of unadulterated opulence.

      1. I wonder where it went! I’ve checked spam in case it went there but to no avail. I think you could be right. Thanks for dropping by though.

    Opened the Dictionary app to find the definition of one of those words! One of the things I enjoy about reading the SSS posts is learning new-to-me words and then seeing them used so rambunctiously. Well done.

  13. “Termagants”. I love when a writer sends me for the dictionary! Palpable energy in the first 5 sentences, you can almost feel the change in gear by the time you get to the 6th.
    Wonderful Six, Ami.
