New Word Wednesday #37

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:

aftapick:  (noun) the second choice; as in, "Molly didn't seem to mind that she was Jason's aftapick, since he married her."

anksh:  (adjective) feeling a combination of angst and anguish; as in "Rodney was anksh about his lack of vertical superiority."

efret:  (verb)  to worry about internet issues, such as computer viruses, spam, and scammers; as in, "Because she was prone to efret, Harriet hardly ever used her computer."

femisg:  (noun) a feminine hygiene product used to mask unpleasant vaginal vapors; as in, "Harriet never dated without a can of femisg in her purse for emergencies."

silquin:  (noun)  a silk fabric covered with shiny little metal discs; as in, "Barbara's silquin dress was a show-stopper."

Now, don't forget!  Use a word three times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!

I like the way you think! I am going to use silquin a lot somehow. I like the way that sounds!

femisg made me go "eeewwww!"
in my mind unpleasant vaginal vapors means get to a doctor...NOW.

efret...i get that a lot...crashed too many hard drives in the last 3 years....in my neck of the woods an aftapick is what you got to do when you got food stuck in yourteeth after dinner...

Vaginal vapors?! I have much to learn :)! Who knew? Your blog has become a plethora of the things nobody tells us but we ought to know.

I will never again be leery of being the aftapick. After all, a ring might be around the corner ;). (That would scare me!)
