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, since I'll be working tomorrow night I think I'll go ahead and put up our game tonight. I'm off Fri and Sat nights so I'll get the winners up on time Saturday.

Oh, and some of you have asked about my hands. I've been keeping them well lubed with Johnson's Betime Baby Lotion and they're all better, thanks.

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!


Our words for this week are:

oubliette
pursy

Oubliette: A ballet move.

Usage: Clyde had a blowout in his left ballet slipper on that last oubliette.

Pursy: A tendency to collect lots of handbags.

Lurlene has a right pursy streak and you can tell by her closet full of pocketbooks!

Hmmm ...

Oubliette: Mumbled jargon for having already eaten.

As in: "Hank, have another hot dog!"
"No thanks, I oubliette five of 'em."

Pursy: Term for a cat that purrs an inordinate amount.

As in: "That's one happy cat, she's very pursy."

I know, I know ... bad ... my brain is fried this week, sorry!

OK, here goes! :D

Oubliette: noun. Polite way of saying you have an obligation you have no intention of meeting, that someone else gave you. IE, "That oubliette for the board meeting? Oh, riiiiiiiight...."

Pursy: noun. True name for the small attache bag a man carries, and known only to women. IE, "Oh, look! His pursy matches his shoes SO well - wonder where he got it...."

:D Thanks for letting me play. I enjoy words! :)

oubliette (oo-blee-yet') A noun. An East Indian word for 'a female elephant driver'. 'Oublieeee', with the second syllable held out as long as possible, is the call used to round up the elephant herd for transport. When feminism gained a foothold in rural parts of India and women began competing for careers in elephant driving, they were nicknamed 'oubliettes' by their male counterparts who used it as a derogatory term.
