Word - ful Wednesday

OK,  I was not and am not a math or science person.  I always considered myself an English (now a days they call it ELA or English, Language, Arts) or History person.  I found the study of a sentance struture, interesting!  Sad, I know but just being real, y'all!  Hehe!

So the other night when Christian finally asked for help with his stems (it took a few really bad grades and his phone privaledges being revoked to ask for help!),

I understood why he was having such a hard time in my area of "expertise!"


so hard in fact that I didn't even know how to pronounce some of them! 

There was diaphanous.  Please don't ask me how to pronounce it but I can tell you that is means "semi-transparent!"

There was perfidious, which I now know means "treacherous."

There was circumlocution which means "talking in circles."

There was egregious and intractable and intransigent and discursive and adjure and polyglot!  Most of these I knew but NEVER use!

There was chiromancy which means "palm reading."  Please tell me why this word is on this list???

and my fav, confluence, which means a "flowing together."  It is just a fun word to say!  Again, sad, I know!

So, while my perspicuous and gregarious hubby who tends to be discursive and intractable at times and sometimes leads me to seek out an analgesic, may be intransigent about some issues, I am his biggest adherent and all of these traits have led him to a great sinecure in his current company!! 

Yeah, I would never have known how to use some of those words if it hadn't been for my SEVENTH GRADER'S vocabulalry words!  Geesh! 

No wonder I am never "Smarter than a 5th Grader!"  LOL!

Oh and what did he get on this test - the test that WE studied for???

Why a 92!  Thank you very much!!!!!  Hehe!
