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

For next week, work on these:
pencel
penstock



Last Week's Definitions:
sedan chair - an enclosed vehicle for one person, borne on poles by two bearers (Congrats Smarty Pants Mam!)



sedulous - 1) diligent in character or application; persevering 2) persistently or carefully maintained "sedulous flattery"



Silly Geese Winners this week are:
Lori in South Dakota said...
Sedan chair--what the seats in a 1968 Chevy Impala were called

Salubrina said...
sedulous - the "it" word for fashionable divas.

instead of the boring ole' "you look fabulous!" or "that gown is stunning!" you would say "you look sedulous!" or, "that gown is simply sedulous!"
(This is almost a Smarty Pants Winner!)


Honorable Mention.....
Pops (AirbornePoppa) said...
Sedulous I had a good one until I read Subvet's comment about Cool Hand Luke being a "chick flick" Even I can't stretch my imagination THAT FAR! I'll get back to you on it.

Glad SOMEONE agrees with me. Of course, I keep trying to convince Subvet that the Dirty Dozen reference makes Sleepless in Seattle a guy movie!


For any newcomers to Thesaurus Thursday, the "rules" can be found here.

For all winners, the Awards can be found on the sidebar to pick up at your leisure.


Now don't forget to leave your comments for the new words!

"The Dirty Dozen" is my favorite movie of all time. Seriously. I like John Wayne, western and war movies. No chick flicks for this chick! ;o)

Pencel: The French word and pronunciation for a wood and graphite writing instrument, pen-CELL.

Penstock: The shaft or body of a pen, especially a fountain pen.

Sorry, that's the best I can do today. My brains have turned to snot, courtesy of my accursed allergies. Ugh.
