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.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Thesaurus Thursday

Every once in awhile....NOW, being one of those times......I feel like I move about in a bubble.

I feel like the things I say aren't listened to, the things I write aren't read.
And my funny bone is MIA.

And then, just when I'm getting a real good pity party going, I find out that has a FREE iPHONE APP!! This is waaaaaay exciting to a girl fascinated with dictionaries!! :-)

So, I'm going to bring back what has been the MOST FUN thing since I started this blog.

I think we all recognize and feel the "bubble" from time to time.

Queachy is what you say to the queen as you pinch her cheek.

Heuchera is what someone with a speech impediment calls a street walker.

I didn't realize this game was getting so racy.

Mrs4444 said...

I have no idea, but I do look forward to the answers; I would love to use the word "queachy."

Molly said...

LOLOLOLOL!! Okay, I'm going to give this a shot!

heuchera - expletive uttered by Chihuahuas and various other small breeds of dogs

I can't think of anything for queachy at the moment. I might have to come back. =)

You know, I think you would appreciate the following Synonym a Day blog There are daily posts of common words with queachy (hey, does using it in a sentence count? lol! queachy - uncommon or out of the ordinary) synonyms and usage examples that are quite entertaining. They are based on Peter E. Meltzer's "The Thinker's Thesaurus - Sophisticated Alternatives to Common Words"! If you can imagine a thesaurus being entertaining, while still being informative and fascinating (especially if you're a word hound like me) this is it.

Well, I won't hold my breath for either prize on this one, but thanks for getting my brain going this evening!
