Russell the Perfidious

14 Feb

perfidious:  \pro-nun-ci-a-tions-are-too-hard\  adj.  untrustworthy, disloyal, deceitful

Classical Usage:  The definition above could simply read, “Mrs. Reed.”   Jane remembers, “the perfidious hints given by Mrs. Reed about my disposition . . .”

Classically Mad Usage:  This word could really beef up my incessant jabber about reality TV.  Tomorrow night begins a new season of Survivor, and I can’t wait to find out who will be the perfidious player I love to hate.  Can you?

    The pronunciation cracked me up! And now I’ll be humming Glenn Miller’s “Perfidia” for the rest of the day.

      I was not familiar with that tune, where have I been? I’m learning so much.
