My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Thesaurus Thursday

Well, obviously I should NOT try to type at 5:30 in the MORNING!! As I tend to make really silly errors in spelling.

As Ms Vee pointed out. It is indeed sErger, not sUrger as I put in the SSSS post. I must have been experiencing a sUrge of stUpidity there.........
Thank you Ms Vee!! I shall now name you my official editor in chief! :-) Keep up the good work!

So, other than spelling words I do know the meanings of, let's see what the old dictionary has in store for us tonight.

longanimity

genu


Just in case this is your first time by here on a Thesaurus Thursday, the "rules" of Thesaurus Thursday are as follows:

First and foremost, leave as many funny definitions for either word (or both) as you can think up in the comments!! The ones that make me laugh the hardest will be given the Silly Goose Award.


Next, if you know (or think you know) the true definitions without looking them up then be sure and leave those in the comments too!! All definitions that are correct (or close enough for government work and Mighty Mom) will win the Smarty Pants Award!
Awards will be given out in Saturday's post, so don't forget to come and see if you won!

Now, I would like for everyone who's reading this to please stop and say a prayer for THE CREATOR of these lovely awards. Ms Diane J. has been having some health issues and will be having testing to rule out congestive heart failure. Please join me in prayer for her doctors to find the source of her problems and be able to solve them....(oh, and God, RULING OUT heart failure would be great!) I'm also going to add her family to this prayer request as it is never easy for loved ones to watch and wait. In fact, many times it's harder for the family than the patient. As always, I know my wonderful group of blogging buddies to be powerful prayers and rest in the assurance that y'all are beating on the Big Guy's door!

Thanks guys and gals. I love each and every one of you!

Sarah.

Hold The Presses! I KNOW this one! "genu" - a Catholic word, meaning 'knee'. Often used in combination with another Catholic word, "flect", meaning to 'bend', to describe a particular aerobic exercise performed traditionally in Roman Catholic churches.
