One of our participants, Annie Powter, put together a paragraph using all the words in our 2017 challenge:
Spelling Bee Paragraph
Ucluelet… that wonderful town of braggadocious, borscht eating, ostentatious surfers who frequently develop psoriasis… (either from handling and growing poinsettias in their greenhouses, or getting “board rash” which would debilitate them even further), also has the prerogative of hosting “vermilion” shaded sunsets easily seen nightly from its beautiful beaches. Some of the (fair) dinkum folk would have practiced mnemonics to preserve their memories and their sanity, while waiting for the sun to dip below the horizon, or for the intermittent tides to change. At some point, a logarithm could have been possibly devised to better understand the vagaries of the ocean, but ultimately, a nod to the “set in stone” tidal charts were given. Sadly, while drifting about on their boards, the thesaurus perched on their mahogany bookshelves would have been out of reach. It could have provided another alternative such as practicing up to date etymology while they waited in a disingenuous fashion for “the big one “to arrive. At all times of course, the dilemma to be faced was not to asphyxiate if one’s board tipped…hence one would have utilized a type of deferment of sorts, allowing a colossal wave to pass by unchallenged. This would not have been seen as cowardly, since the end result could have produced a very lengthy “rest” in a sarcophagus.
