Every time I comment on a website where I have to type a word verification to get my comment posted, I can't help but think, "What a waste! What could possibly be a very helpful word is now going to disappear and never be seen again." With all the attention being paid to "going green" in this country, I think it's time for bloggers to go green and recycle the letter combos used in word verification. (I personally did away with the process to eliminate the waste of words, but some people just aren't as conservation minded!)
I decided a couple of weeks ago to start a meme called "New Word Wednesday", thus creating a dictionary of new words based on the letter combos that pop up in the word verification process. You may feel free to do the same, or to grab my words and use them. (You know, if you use a new word three times, it's in your vocabulary forever; at least that's what I've heard) Just think, we can learn new words and go green just by recycling/reusing the words that show up at comment time.
Here are this week's words:
betraphy: to put all one's earnings into gambling; as in, "George has a tendency to betraphy his paycheck at the track every week."
nonscop: a person so obviously unattractive as to be not worth "scoping out;" as in, "Andrea was disappointed that her blind date was a total nonscop."
redners: stories or photos of a person that are particularly embarrassing and cause them to be red-faced; as in, "You can't visit my kids without them telling you some real redners about me!"
suicab: a luxury taxi with all the perks of a limo, offering passengers a "suite" ride, but with the compact size and agility of a city cab; as in, "The suicab had plush leather seats, champagne and snacks available, as well as a restroom, making the ride to the airport sweet."
taxiste: a professional tax-preparer; as in, "To get the largest possible refund, it's best to take your taxes to a taxiste."
