Wordy Wednesday!



This weeks Wordy Wednesday word is;

Maladroit

- This is a great word that basically means; clumsy
- Bumbling or awkward
- Unskillful
- Tactless and insensitive in behaviour or speech.

This word would have originated from French, roughly 1665 - 1675.

'She spoke quickly, harshly. She was angry, and in her anger she was maladroit, the hurtful words spilling from her pink stained lips before she could stop them.'

'He had always been maladroit, ever since he was a child. His father had always teased him about it, calling him senseless, and a bumbling idiot, but his mother had seen how stupid it made him feel, she had never teased him about it.'

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!
