Weekend Writing Prompt — Tessellate

Sammi Cox has challenged us to write a 58 word post using the word “tessellate.”

I’ve never heard of or used that word before.

So I googled it. Tessellate means “to form into or adorn with mosaic.”

Now all I have to do is to figure out how to fit it into a post.

Fuhgeddaboudit. I give up.

(58 words)

    Sally was happy with the bathroom in the guest bedroom when she moved into her home. And she wasn’t the sort who would hurry out and plan a new bathroom if the style had not been her favorite to begin with. The tile in the shower, however, had been coming loose in the sixth year until a set of pieces separated away from the wall.

    She glued them back and used some plasticky-looking stuff recommended by a neighbor to seal the edges. It would do, but it wasn’t really acceptable in the long run. A handyman told her that even if she used proper grouting to redo the area, it would still have a different coloring from the rest.

    Out she trudged to look at fresh selections of tile and other surfacing options for the entire stall. She learned that she should probably choose a new shower base as well, if not tile for that too, if she was not going with white again. She saw pre-fab sets that wouldn’t fit her space. Then she found Onyx.

    This is nice, she thought. That company would custom make all the walls for the shower, custom make the base, too. There were many colors, and it wasn’t acrylic or anything like that. She narrowed down the color palette to three possibilities, moving on. Now shapes to tessellate the bathroom floor.

    Interesting. I knew the word when I saw it, but despite learning it 50+ years ago, I’ve never used it. This was my once in a lifetime chance. But I like what you did.
