The Word Of The Day Challenge
So, going to Dictionary.com, the word for January 1, 2017 is:
or hansel [han-suh l]
James had been down on his luck for some time. Whenever he thought he might be making progress, life came along and knocked his good fortune out from under him.
He never let his problems be known, so no one realized his needs. He figured few would offer him an hansel, let alone help him get through the hard times. He would have to go it alone whether people knew or not.
He finally decided on his own handsel; he would play the lottery and see if his luck could change.
When the winning numbers were drawn, he amazed everyone by matching all of them.
No more would James be a pauper.
I welcome all comments, feedback and/or critiques. I would also extend to any and all to feel free to make your own creation on this word, or another found elsewhere. As stated in the “rules”
