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:
dratures: (noun) a slang word used to refer to dentures that do not stay in place and do not work well; as, in "Aunt Matilda got so frustrated that she said, "I've had it with these dratures!" and tossed them out the car window."
gospagra: (noun) a busy-body who spends their time spreading rumors about others; as in, "The saying goes, Telephone, telegraph, telEdwina--she's the biggest gospagra in town!"
kindingi: (noun) a small skiff belonging to a relative; as in, "George made his way back to shore in the kindingi that Dad loaned to him."
pedneta: (noun) a brush designed to help remove dead skin from one's feet; as in, "Ever since I began using that new peneta, I have the softest feet and don't mind wearing sandals!"
tomblo: (noun) a sex act performed by an awkward female whose behavior and pursuits are usually typical of males; as in, "Agatha may live in jeans and hang out with the guys, but she is capable of giving a tomblo that will curl your toes!"
Don't forget that if you use a word in your regular speech three times, it's in your vocabulary forever
