Wordy Wednesday!



This weeks Wordy Wednesday word is;

Obstreperous

- Noisy, unruly, rough
- Clamorous or boisterous
- Resisting control or restraint in a difficult manner

This word originated from Latin roughly 1590 - 1600, from the word obstrepere, which means; 'to make a noise at'.

'She sighed and shook her head slightly in defeat as she watched the two obstreperous young boys racing away across the freshly mowed grass of the estate's garden. There was little she could do to control them.'


Challenge;

Comment a short piece of prose, flash fiction, or even just a sentence, using this word. It would be great to see what you come up with!
