Profectitious

PROFECTITIOUS

-adj.
Proceeding from, as from a parent; derived, as from an ancestor.

























A profectitious curse had made him king of it all
When all he'd ever wanted was to be something fun
A journalist writing gossip and culinary columns


The background picture was put on line by Willow (Tess) of Willow Manor, as a writing prompt.

I love learning new words. Thanks for word smithing such a great piece for the word you picked.

Good work.

Great word! I'm laughing b/c I just posted a curse take on the prompt myself.

Before looking it up, I was leery of that fancy new word, but it turned out to be perfect and the piece so descriptive, I suspect, of many people at the top.

My Magpie 86 entry is Cepheus.

I think he would much rather not be standing utop the papers but rather nestled in the folds
...a part of the news.

Wow! What a word! And poor little king. Authority is a burden.
