  8. Reblogged this on Wonderwall and commented:
    I had to check what parley, could guess it was connected to talking because of knowledge of French and word parliment. But, had to look it up to know for sure. The Colin’s dictionary defines as:
    1. variable noun
    A parley is a discussion between two opposing people or groups in which both sides try to come to an agreement.
    Synonyms: discussion, conference, meeting, talk(s) More Synonyms of parley
    2. verb
    When two opposing people or groups parley, they meet to discuss something in order to come to an agreement.
    [humorous , or informal]
    …a place where we meet and parley.
    I don’t think you’ve ever tried parleying with Gleed, have you?
    Synonyms: discuss, talk, speak, negotiate More Synonyms of parley

    When I read that at weekend then I thought about the hung parliment in England after last week’s election and the talking ‘parley’ that will need to be done to resolve that situation.

    However today, had really difficult conversation at work, feeling upset so wrote this in 30seconds about how I feel. I mention dialogue to try and convey in one word, two way communication. I think sometimes when you have got your point across and they have made, if still no agreement sometimes you just have to accept and walk away rather than embarrassing self further. Therefore these thoughts condensed came to:
    She walked head high; dialogue complete.

    I stumbled on your blog and cool challenge–and love the violet/periwinkle heart So Much! I hope it’s alright that I don’t participate according to all the conditions–I’m old, and don’t do challenges or competitions. But I can write a 6-word sentence–so that’s what I did–including your name, link and lovely heart in my post. I hope that’s permissible, but if not, please let me know 😉

    • Hi Jael, you are more than welcome to take part on your own terms and not enter. I’m glad you let me know, I’ve popped over to your blog and I wouldn’t have been able to read your story if you’d remained incognito. I hope you feel like participating again, I post a new prompt every week.
