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 several 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:
afluette: susceptible to the flu, as in, "Ellen was constantly getting sick in the winter months, and her doctor determined that she was extremely afluette."
brizes: non-monetary items used as bribes, as in, "An investigation disclosed that the Congressman was guilty of accepting a luxury automobile, a vacation in Aruba, and several other brizes from the lobbyist."
disfo: a slang word for misinformation; as in, "The candidate for office was so uninformed that many of her speeches and interviews were a mess of disfo!"
pryini: a person who is constantly sticking their nose in other people's business; as in, "Your Aunt Ethel is wanted to know how much we paid for this house. She is such a pryini!"
sessate: infused with sesame seeds; as in, "I have eaten so many sesame seed bagels, I'm feeling more than slightly sessate!"
Don't forget that if you use a word in your regular speech three times, it's in your vocabulary forever.
