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

I'm at work,...can't stay online too long or will get in trouble.

New words are
surfeit

exegetical.

Please see last week's Thesaurus Thursday post for "the scoop" if you're not familiar with our game.

Sorry so brief, I'll be back on Saturday for Winners and chitchat.

Um, I know both of them this week, MM.

Surfeit - An excess of something.

Exegetical - Detailed, word for word study or explanation of something, as in to study the Bible exegetically.

Hmmm, I think, since forfeit is to give up something, that surfeit is to gain something, or to have extra of something, as in surplus.

No clue for the other one.

Being that Diane is such a Smarty Pants and knows both words, I guess I'll have to give at least one of them a silly definition!

Surfeit - slang used by surfers along the California coast when speaking to each other as in - "That's a gnarly wave, dudes, let's surfeit!"
