New Word Wednesday #26

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!

I always want to remember the word verification combos, but then promptly forget!

You should host a link party. I never get tired of the way your mind works.

I love some of the definitions you came up with for your words.

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

quekfi is a butt ninja skill if you have any hope of escape

I've seen some cowee in action - they are gushers!

Kristy said...

Pratio! And the last two are funny and cringe-worthy. Love it as usual!

Pearl said...

:-) I wish I'd thought of that.

Ya goof.

Cowee and Singlo both made me laugh...out loud...at WORK!

I love Wednesdays because of you! Love them!

Deirdre: I have pages and pages of them written down. Pretty pathetic, huh?

Miriam: thanks for returning my visit!

This should be part of a game somehow, a monopoly or pictionary kind of game.

I like the 'coozy'. A couple glasses of merlot and that's exactly what I am. LOL

You mean it's not already called cowee? How could it not be?

Eva Gallant said...

rosaria: Have you ever played the game Balderdash? check it out...it's kind of how I got the idea to do new word Wednesdays.

terri: I think merlot would make you meroozy!

Eva Gallant said...

SisterMH: Hope you don't get in trouble for laughing out loud at work!

Clipped Wings said...

Love the cowee one!

You're going to have your very own language by time you get done. Seriously, I could never think of any this good!
