Week in Seven Words #135

gynecologist
The awkwardness when the doctor attempts polite chit-chat during an annual check-up. How do you like the city so far? Uh, it's great. Super. Lots to do here, yep.

insouciant
Among the harried people rushing from block to block there's one person sailing along half-nude on a bicycle and wearing a glittery silver wig.

passing
Old men on a bench outside a cafe looking around at a neighborhood that's changed.

refreshing
Evergreens and harbor air.

scarce
Health insurance options.

solemnity
A grove of trees, a copper bell, and geese.

spectral
There are many stories to be found in the silent houses.

I like spectral.
And lol about gynecologist. Mine does the same thing. She loves to chat during the checkup and even stops on and off while animatedly speaking! lol I've been going to her for years and it's always the same thing.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Oh I hate that from gynaecologists! I just wish they wouldn't. Worse still when it's one's regular GP, and you're used to having one kind of chat and then they don't know how to cope.

This is quite a terse week! I like 'solemnity' it's poetic and mysterious.

@Naida: It's their way of putting us at ease, I guess... I hope you had a good weekend too :)

@ Lucy: I'm glad you liked solemnity. It happened in a very poetic atmosphere.

Thanks for stopping by!
