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:
coozy: (adjective) feeling woozy from having imbibed too much Coors; as in, "Jack knew he was too coozy to drive after partying all evening with the guys."
cowee: (noun) bovine urine; as in, "Harold soon learned while visiting his uncle's farm, one of the hazards of standing at the back end of a cow while it is tied up in the barn is cowee."
pratio: (noun) the correlation between the amount of prayers uttered to the degree those prayers are answered; as in, "The pratio of snow days on test days to Hank's entreaties to a higher power were not impressive."
queckfi: (noun) a silent but deadly bout of flatulence; as in "After cutting the queckfi near the produce aisle of the supermarket, Carol rapidly pushed her cart to the meat department to escape the green cloud and any semblance of guilt."
singlo: (noun) the aura that emanates from a single woman after her first sexual encounter; as in, "It didn't take George long to figure out what his daughter and her beau had been doing when he caught sight of her singlo."
There you go...today's new words. Remember, use them three times in a sentence and they are in your vocabulary forever!
