I'll start with the little funny in case you aren't one of my willingly obsessive friends who wants to learn odd words.
I was driving past a big drugstore the other day and the lighted sign was advertising "Flu and Paranoia Shots."
Or maybe not. I think it must have been "Flu and Pneumonia Shots." My brain needs just a tiny tweak of an adjustment some days.
My new words this month and the multiple choices to guess are found at Vocabulary Day Jan 2013. Chuck brings us the best daffynitions in that day's comments. Perhaps you'll like them better than the real thing. Nevertheless...
b. perilous (or dangerous)
a. deserved (or adequate)
d. to have an effect or consequence
a. a workshop or studio, particularly of an artist or designer
b. pale, and in botany a plant that has grown without sun, so is not green (like white asparagus)
c. disembowel, as of a deer in hunting (but yes, Chuck, it's Scottish)
There you go. You'll begin to see how my mind works, and start figuring out the answers by elimination. That's fine with me.
