New Feature!!!

Friday, May 30, 2008

Today whilst driving across Central Kansas, I was listening to an audio tape (which I usually have running in my car.) There were so many great words used in this book that I decided that we all needed some regular vocabulary prompting. I'm forever thankful, Mrs. Sackrider, (10th grade teacher), for instilling a love of vocabulary at such a tender age. Where ever you are, Mrs.'re the bomb. I think I will google you tonight.

So, introducing a new feature for all 11 of you readers:

Word of the Day. Now, don't get you panties all in a wad, there won't be a new word EVERY day (I'm way too busy around here to do that much work.) When I am reminded of, stumble across or learn a new word, I will post it. Your only job is to use it in a sentence that very day you read it. That's it...nothing else. I will use it in a sentence myself for you, while revealing just a bit about what's happening in my life.
Have a blast!

Today's word is: agog

From the Merriam-Webster online dictionary:

Main Entry: agog
Pronunciation: \ə-ˈgäg\
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle French en gogues in mirth
Date: 1559
: full of intense interest or excitement : eager

My sentence: Molly was all agog today upon seeing her newest newborn cousin, Ella.

Eek! Word of the day? SO FUN! :)

Wanna be my next reader profile? :)

When I hear this word, I always think of Eulalie MacKecknie Shinn in The Music Man; "I am agog. Simply. Agog."

Awesome. :)

I love the word agog :)
