Mean Girls – Part 2

cookiesToday’s word is pink • \PINK\ verb. a : pierce, stab; b : to wound by irony, criticism, or ridicule

“Good morning,” Molly said as she floated to her cubicle. “I brought cookies for anyone who wants some.”

“Did you make them?” Ivy asked ironically. She intended this as a pink, but Molly appeared to have missed it.

“I did. John needed to bring cookies to a work party and I had some leftover, so I brought them to share.” She set the plate at the corner of her desk, turned on her computer and plopped down in her chair.

Ivy, who sat in the cubicle next Molly, turned to avoid revealing her malicious grin.

Delores had been listening to their dialogue, with one eye peeking over the cubicle wall. Ivy saw Delores spying and winked at her. Delores ducked her head quickly and tried to focus on her work. Perhaps this wasn’t such a good idea, she thought. Because of Ivy’s impetuous ways, she realized overnight that getting her involved could ruin the entire plan. But it was too late.

She stood up like a shot and walking past Ivy’s desk, said almost too loudly, “Ivy, let’s go to that meeting.”

Ivy sat befuddled for a moment, but realizing Delores’ point, she hastily followed her down the hall.

    It’s on the Merriam-Webster site at http://www.merriam-webster.com/. And I also didn’t know it was a verb, but it worked perfectly for my story! It turns out, that’s where the word ‘pink slip’ come from when you get terminated. Who knew?

    What are these two meanies up to? I can’t wait to find out.

    Oh, and BTW, I didn’t know Pink was also used as a verb. So, you taught me something new today! :c)

    I think I will start looking at the word of the day also. Which site did you say that was on?
