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, Answers, Winners, and Words

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.

Last week's Silly Goose Winners are:

Sain...This is a rare geological/meterological occurance where water actually comes up from the from the soil in droplets. Rain in reverse, you might say.





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!

Imbroglio is a mess or disturbance, a SNAFU; sometimes a political scandal or situation.

Immane - Hmm..not sure, so I'll try for funny on this one.

Immane - Ghetto slang for "him ain't": I'se goin' to th' likker store, but immane; 'e's too stoned to drife.
