Welcome to the final Save-a-Word Saturday!
Join us as we spread our love of old and unusual words by sharing them with other bloggers and thereby saving them from the oldest, least-visited vaults of the Word Bank.

This week's theme is: finales, farewells, or anything else that strikes your fancy.
Our word is:
a wretch; an idle person. doing quisby: idling, not working.
"I'm going away, George," Will said. He looked down and shifted his hat in his hands. "I think . . . for a long time."
"Did she do that bad for you, my friend?" George asked. Will didn't answer. "If I wasn't such a useless quisby I would almost offer to go with you. As it is, I don't think I could work up the energy for such a venture. Where are you going? Africa?"
Will shrugged his shoulders. "Maybe. Maybe I'll go to the Continent first. I don't know." He put his hat on and turned towards the door. "I didn't expect you to want to come," Will said. "I only came to say farewell."
Will nodded and left.
George leapt across the room and stopped in the doorway. As he watched his childhood friend disappear down the stairs to God only knew where, George almost wished that he had offered to go and that this need not be the final farewell.
