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:
blesstie: (noun) a necktie reserved for wearing to church services only; as in, "Michael carefully knotted his blesstie before leaving for mass."
clanit: (verb) the act of banding together as a family against an outside threat ; as in, "When the neighbor kids began to pick on Sally Dunne, the Dunnes decided to clanit, and started walking 5 year-old Sally to and from school.."
flapl: (noun) a disturbance that spreads in a crowd, much like a ripple on a lake; as in, the news that Congress may cut Medicare benefits has created a real flapl among senior citizens."
gramagg: (adjective) items or behavior that are annoying to a grandmother; as in, "Julie's tendency to wear skirts so short they barely covered her undies was a real gramagg."
persp: (noun) the stains left in clothes as a result of excessive perspiration; as in, "The current heat wave has left many of us with the job of removing persp from our clothing."
Remember, use a word three times in a sentence, and it's in your vocabulary forever!
