When your three words of the day are comme ci comme ça (that’s so-so in French– a bonus word for you!) what do you do?
MAKE THEM FUN.
stenographer: one who transcribes speech, especially in shorthand (as in a courtroom)
avowal: open acknowledgment, confession, or assertion of a truth
fakir: a Muslim or Hindu religious idealist who lives solely on alms

2. After the bored stenographer’s avowal that the stack of doodles in the courtroom were his, he was offered a scholarship to art school.
3. Whew, thought the ex-stenographer. For a moment there I thought I was out of a job and would have to become a fakir or something! With this economy…
Well folks, after those three sentences I can honestly say I think they went downhill. Please, write in with better ones! 🙂
