Vocab World Chapter 7… Wheel of Bankruptcy by Matthew

​Chapter 7

Wheel of Bankruptcy

​As Thursday rolled around, the Wheel of Fortune match was on. I was going to compete against a taciturn young girl named Makenzie, and a lugubrious man named Leland. On my way to the podium I was pinioned to the wheel so I couldn’t get up. That gave me a small nodule on my forehead. But I didn’t realize it until I was prostrate from passing out. I picked myself up and went to my spot. That sure was soporific!
​The first spin was complete maelstrom. The rest of them were really calm though. Then suddenly Leland spun the million dollar award. He let it oscillate in a tantalizing way. On the last play I went bankrupt. I left completely saturnine. I failed.
