As English is not my mother tongue there are a lot of English words do not know. I found a list I made a year or so ago containing some words I liked but did not know/understand.
Some time ago, the future of a Good Place was quite suddenly thrown into question. Chaos threatened to rule the day. Despite polite queries from it's citizens regarding the future of their precious land, their distracted monarch was obtuse
and offhand in the few responses he offered. A great many feared the worst.
Though they would never be described as milquetoast
or 'a pushover', the collective brotherhood chose to meet this ungentlemanly response from their overseer with patience, wisdom and steadfast resolve, unperturbed by the dismissive tone of these pronouncements. (Many had suspected for some while that this gadfly
manner was a deliberate provocation... it is not our place to speculate however.)
With a hearty guffaw
and a girding of the loins, plans were set in motion to prevent that Good Place from being egregiously
vaporised with a dismissive wave of this knave's hand, and the whole confounding imbroglio
was met head-on by a true champion from their ranks: a veritable White Knight of back-end hosting space
who, after perusing
this dire situation from his bucolic idyll, enobled himself to the Good Members by stepping in to peacefully and swiftly avert the calamity - therefore ensuring said brethren as lifelong tributaries
to his Monstrously Worshipful reign.
In stark contrast to his predecessor's surprising disavowal
of that Good Place (swept aside with a pointed 'ditch this shithouse and come join our crappy Facebook group instead'
, delivered with casually blunt insouciance
...) the newly appointed benign overseer immediately instigated a Glorious New Dawn and, with but a few simple measures, ensured that the kingdom would prevail for a great many years to come...
