Word Play - Sunday Snippet


We walked across the sand to the approaching ocean and came across a small tidepool. It was cool, but not too cool; warm, but not too warm.

Richard said, “Oooh, it’s warm.”

I said, “No, it’s not.”

He scoffed, smiled, looked at me and said, “Then what would you call it?”

“Tepid,” I replied.

He shook his head and groaned (but there was a small smile playing on his lips).


Sunday Snippets is hosted by Pure Unadulterated Softthistle.

If I used the word tepid with my husby, all I would get is a blank stare!
