(late) Shakespearean Imagination

Friends, what cheer?

It's Wednesday Thursday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

I apologise for missing yesterday - the day started off well, but things at work blew up around midday and the rest of the day just went downhill from there. As I posted in my twitter feed, "How can so much go so wrong so quickly?" Still, I must admit that missing my scheduled day means I am:

blushing : blush•ing /bləSHˈiNG/ (adjective) (verb) :

- Having a red face from embarrassment or shame or agitation or emotional upset.
- Modest or bashful.

- Becoming red in the face, especially from modesty, embarrassment, or shame; flushing.
- Becoming red or rosy.
- Feeling embarrassed or ashamed.

Synonyms as a verb: flushing – reddening – blooming

Synonyms as an adjective: flushing – red-faced – flustered – ruddy – bashful – modest – roseate

First seen in Shakespeare's King Henry VI, Part III (written 1590 - 1591). The full text of the play may be found here.
