There are a few folks who started coming by after Thesaurus Thursday went on hiatus.
So I thought I'd repost an explanation and the "rules" of Thesaurus Thursday for us all to review before it starts back up in a couple weeks.
Here's how it works:
Each week (hopefully on Thursday...) I will post two words whose definitions I do not know. I find all words and most definitions in my Random House Webster's College Dictionary, copyright 1992
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!
the following Thursday I will post the correct definitions for the previous week's words, the winners of the Silly Goose and the Smarty Pants awards, as well as two more words for the next week's game.
You have all week to think up definitions and get those creative juices flowing!!
By the way, I never said that only one person can win each award each week. I've been known to give either or both to several folks at a time. And if you know the correct definition...but it's already been left in the comments then leave it again and show how smart you are!! So long as you didn't look it up and you knew it before you read the comments you're a Smarty Pants too!
A word of advice. Many folks have said that they couldn't think up any funny definitions AFTER reading all the other silly stuff in the comments. So look at the words and come up with your definitions BEFORE you read the comments!! Even if someone else wrote what you were gonna say...say it anyway!!
Now, start warming up....starting in August we're gonna be increasing our vocabulary and exercising our funny bones at the same time!!
