C for Confessions-#atozchallenge


“A Brilliant Conspiracy” Episode 3.

Blurb & other Episodes

Confessions dictate everyone’s future. Guesses hamper investigations.

Judging kitthoge lies mandates novel operating procedures, but quickly reveals suspects. Truths unite valid witnesses.

“Xylophagous,” yelled zetetic Archibald.


Kitthoge                      left-handed; awkward

Xylophagous              wood-eating

Zetetic                         proceeding by inquiry; inquiring, investigating

  1. Still loving it…but I resent kitthoge a little. If right-handed people had to adapt to all the things we correct-handed people do, they might be a bit on the awkward side, themselves! =D


    • Some of the cleverest people have been left-handed. So apologies for the ‘kitthoge’… I was going for ‘awkward’ rather than ‘left-handed’, although I suppose the definition links them. Blame judgmental investigators….I use a sight-related descriptor later in a similar way.

      • I don’t hold it against you as much as the culture that equated the two. I have similar issues with the French, which equates “left” with “unseemly” (“gauche”).

        I might be a little hypersensitive, too. I grew up extremely left-handed in an otherwise right-handed household, and I got teased and ridiculed a lot for an otherness I couldn’t help, and now wouldn’t trade for anything.

        Fortunately, I married an ambidextrous man, and we have two ambidextrous children. They are favor the right, but are adept enough with the left that handedness is never an issue, in THIS house. =)
