It’s the last Word Wednesday of 2013! Enjoy the December fun!
ubiquitous: existing or being everywhere at the same time (bread, cake and cookies at my house this month)
clatter: a rattling sound (listen for it on your roof on December 25th)
huggermugger: chaotic secrecy (people frantically hiding presents and forgetting where they put what.)
Word Wednesday is early this month because of World Kindness Day!
claque: a group hired to applaud at a performance. (I’ve been a claque and didn’t know it.)
gad: to be constantly active without specific purpose ( Hmmm…What are Christmas shoppers?)
kind: Everyone should know this, just checking to see if you are paying attention.
Here I am. I made it to Word Wednesday with a few hours to spare! I hope you’re still out there!
schism: a split or division between strongly opposed sections or parties, caused by differences in opinion or belief. (i.e. I’ll leave this one up to your imagination, but I know what I’m thinking..ten letters, first letter W or G)
mellifluous: (of a voice or words) sweet or musical; pleasant to hear. (i.e. Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, people on THE VOICE, my husband but definitely NOT me.)
fractious: tending to be troublesome (i.e. the “voice” at the self check-out that keeps asking me to remove the last item from my bag)
Word Wednesday is here! Granted it’s a week late, but I have a good reason. Yes, I went off the grid and to the beach! Now, I’m back, with some fun, new words for you. Enjoy!
scad: a large number or quantity (i.e. pieces of assorted candy I ate while on vacation)
taciturn: disinclined to talk (i.e. the sun-bathing turtle I saw)
phantasmagoria: a scene that constantly changes or fluctuates (i.e. the aurora borealis…One day I hope to see it up close and in person. )
I promised three new words. Here they are. Don't forget to use them!
panoply: an array of something splendid (i.e. the cookie table at an Italian Wedding)
myriad: a lot (i.e. how much bread and goodies one eats over the holidays)
munificent: generous (i.e. people who help others in whatever way they can)
