Anyway you saute it, a titillating tangent has been sliced straight through the inner circle of 500 top rated celebrity foodie sites today, as overnight sensation, Bon Vivant- the podcast where envy engorged excess takes on the minutiae of modern mastication- threatens to flip the lid off the supercilious culinary sub-culture, and expose the soft, spongy underbelly of gastrointestinal incorrectness that is seething just below it’s very own discriminating palate. 

This One Sentence Story is my first attempt at a “Wordle”. A wordle is a list of words that challenges us to incorporate them all in one piece of writing. I have long been envious of Sadje’s ability to create cohesive pieces of writing from these obviously unrelated word lists, and today I decided to make good on my threat to try it sometime.

The Wordle provided by Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie included the following word list:

1. Podcast
2. Minutiae
3. 500
4. Envy
5. Flip
6. Spongy
7. Excess
8. Bon Vivant (n))a person who lives luxuriously and enjoys good food and drink)
9. Sensation
10. Anyway
11. Tangent
12. Incorrect

Word Count: 91
