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:
backbipl: a type of acne on a person's back that resembles a nipple; as in, "Henry had a backbipl which made him the butt of jokes in the boys' locker room."
cardshil: a person who pretends to be a novice poker player in order to get others to play; as in, :"George has a new job at the Casino as a cardshil."
clarizz: A frizzy hair condition caused by excess use of Clairol or some other brand of hair coloring; as in: "Did you see Martha's hair? She has a serious case of clarizz!"
disivent: the act of expressing one's dissapproval of people who put others down, as in: "After listening to Barbara's constant critizism of her coworkers, Marilyn felt the need to disivent."
pulflo: a medication which regulates pulse rate and blood flow in the body; as in, "The Doctor recommended that Harold take a pulflo to stablize his condition."
There you go! Feel free to incorporate these words into your vocabulary!
