New Word Wednesday #42

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:

bariat:  (noun)  a rope with a loop in it intended for use by bartenders to lasso imbibers who attempt to leave without paying their tab; as in, "Phil kept his bariat close at hand and did not hesitate to use it when Bruno tried to sneak off and stick him with the bill."

clumers:  (noun)  bloomers with an emergency quick-release clasp for those who suffer from incontinence; as in, "Martha's clumers more than once saved her from a   tinkle fiasco, because they drop quick in a crisis situation; she was concerned, however, when her daughter  Kitty wanted to borrow them when she was going out bar-hopping,"

fidsell:  (noun)  an auction at which fiddles are put up for sale; as in, "Mark spent the weekend rounding up fiddles for next week's fidsell to benefit the American Cancer Society."

hazoods:  (noun) hooded garments worn by workers who deal with hazardous materials; as in, "The company insisted that all workers in the nuclear power plant wear hazoods for safety reasons."

meleye:  (noun)  a state of melancholy so severe, it's apparent in the individuals eyes; as in, "When the doctor saw Emily's meleye, he immediately prescribed an anti-depressant."

thumatim:  (verb)  the act of applying a foul substance to a child's thumb in an attempt to end thumbsucking; as in, "Against the doctor's instructions, Gladys did a thumatim and applied hot sauce to the baby's thumb."

Don't forget.....use a word three times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary for ever!

Clumers....LMAO. I think I used to wear those in my bar hopping days. Shameful!

All were creative and entertaining, but "Hazhoods" was my fave. Gotta go out and buy one now!

Hazoods is my favourite. A hoodie version of a hard hat.

Brian Miller said...

Meleye is my favorite, with bariat a close second.

And I've had days when a pair of clumers would have come in very handy...

Oh, you had me at Hazoods! It's practical and sounds like Snoop Dog named it!

Helene said...

I love all of these! I totally look forward to these kinds of posts from you and I find myself giggling when I see certain word verifications that make no sense, as I think of you and wonder what kind of definition you'd come up with!!

Love the hazoods one especially!!

Pat said...

You are one clever lady! I really don't know how you do this week after week!

Pearl said...
