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

What a nightmare!! Last week our mail was stolen out of our mailbox and scattered up and down the street, both the incoming (can you say credit card offers?) and outgoing (can you say checks with account numbers??) with at least one envelope opened and the check missing. So, I've been spending quite a bit of time on the phone to various people closing our checking account and opening a new one, paying the bills that needed to be paid and putting a fraud alert on our credit reports so if anyone tries to open a line of credit the agency will call the number I gave it for verification first.

So, laughter being the best medicine. Let's see what we can do with our game this week:


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!



Our words for this week are:

kalathos

mizzle


Awards will be given out in Saturday's post, so don't forget to come and see if you won!

Mizzle--that's a muzzle for those micro-dogs: mini-chihuahuas, mini-yorkies, etc.

Kalathos--since the first 6 letters are the first 6 letters of one of our more prolific order-writing physicians, I would have to say kalathos are what she writes.

Omigoodness, just read the first part of this post--what a horror story! Any feedback yet?

mizzle..... this is a combination of mist and fine drizzle...

kalathos... from Greek mythology.. kalathos was a very young goddess who was a bit clumsy. It is the root of our modern word calamity.

I am so sorry about your trouble! I have been so busy that I didn't even do Thesaurus Thursday this week. I hope you have everything restored as it should be.
