But I won’t let it happen again.

14 Apr

Those punctilious among you probably realized that we missed a Saturday post, but I don’t want to vitiate our Hebdomadal Review, plus, I’m no tyro at palavering, so I plan to use all the words, and I would rather pick through a calabash of scoria, or walk into a miasma than stultify the blog by letting the pre-Easter vocabulary be razeed.

 

 

I’m afraid we’re in for it this week, friends.  Here are the words from the last week and a moiety:
scoria
vitiated
punctilious
calabash
stultifying
palavering
razeed
miasma
tyro

    I have wanted to join in on this exercise for a while now but I have been too timid. I’m merely a tyro, not one to be punctilious, and if I fall into palavering and prove myself to be stultifying – your lovely blog could be vitiatied by the miasma that may ensue!
    I would be calabashed over if you razeed my comments. I would rather sleep on a bed of scoria!

      Hoorah! Hoorah! Not only did you play, but you jumped in on an extra big word week! Nicely done! And trust me, your comments will never cause a miasma at this blog – we love them!

        Thank you Christina. That was scary.

        My personal favorite was your use of calabash.

    Whew! This mishmosh of words is like a calabash full of scoria! The confusing miasma could prove to vitiate my former punctilious sentences and cause me instead to fall into the common tyro mistake of palavering thus stultifying me forever. Next time I think you should razee the moiety.

      Razeeing the moiety would have been smart. Do we have a fancy word for smart? If so, I suppose I would have to earn it by using it.

    I love how we just change the parts of speech willy-nilly. (Now THERE’S a fancy word for you – “willy-nilly.”) Smart: ingenious, shrewd, astute
