New Word Wednesday #28

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:

adepsi:  (adjective)  being able to accept any cola substitute for Pepsi; as in, "Tom was not fussy about his soft drinks because he was adepsi."

micen:  (verb) to reduce one to terror; as in, "Veronica could micen a man with a raise of her eyebrow."

physt:  (noun) a hand gesture used by someone in combat; as in "John held up his physts,  well-prepared to phyght."

pryke:  (noun)  a motor operated tricycle; as in, "Alexander was so spoiled, on his 4th birthday, his father bought him a Harly-Davidson pryke."

scrugorr:  (noun)  Igorr's promiscuous brother; as in, "Kate's mother warned her repeatedly against Scrugorr, but Kate agreed to date him anyway."

Remember, use a word 3 times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!

adepsi? There is NO substitute for pepsi. Ever.

physt sounds like it would be the hand gesture that accompanies the said pfft!

I adore this meme! Every week you make me laugh. I thought 'adepsi' was brilliant, but, when I got to 'Scrugorr', I thought I'd die laughing.

Phuck.

Ka-chow! I will micen a man right now!

rosaria said...

Adepsi ugh? Not for me. Only coke.

Kara said...

Oh that Scrugorr! I think I've met him!

Eva Gallant said...

Glenn: Thank you...you are too kind!

Rosaria: I have to admit, given the choice between caffeine-free diet Pepsi and caffeine-free diet Coke, I'll go with Coke every time!

tsonodablog said...

I concur with River. Only, for Diet Pepsi instead of Pepsi. No substitute. I was forced (not held at gun point or anything...more like persuaded) to have a Diet Coke today at work. Yuck.

Reeni said...

You have me cracking up! I love adepsi - I hope I can remember it when I need to. Seriously, I don't know how you think of these!

Eva Gallant said...

Terri: I have to say, I prefer caffeine-free Diet Coke to Caffeine-free Diet Pepsi...sorry.

Reeni: I was really tired from the weekend when I did this post...I really didn't think I'd done that well. Glad you liked them, anyway.

Pat said...

I can not adepsi. Hell, I don't even PEPSI. I prefer Diet Dr. Pepper, but I'll drink COKE any day over Pepsi!

Ann On and On... said...

Wise new words by Eva...

I have mild adepsi. I like my Pepsi Max. But I will take a Coke if it's regular coke, cocooned in ice and delivered by a smokin' hot dude. Otherwise substitutes can kiss my heiney.

Eva Gallant said...

Veg: Funny how a smokin' hot dude can make all the difference!
