Big Word Wednesday-Week 11
Well, at least this counts as 2 contests: the first and the last. Tom at Being Michaels Daddy is the winner of the BWW POP QUIZ, as he was the only entrant. Congratulations Tom! Your bucket of genuine Myrtle Beach sand is on the way. I have a feeling that Tom would have won regardless of the amount of entrants, had there been any; as he is a sesquipedalian of the first order. Audubon Ron at Ducks Mahal claims that the dog ate his homework. I would have thought it would’ve been one of his ducks, but it wasn’t. We all know how hard it is to get bill marks out of paper. Kimmylyn at Jogging In Circles was honest enough to say that she was “scared by the challenge and ducking out the back door”. Kim, your honesty humbles me. In retrospect I probably asked for too many big words, but that’s OK. Live and learn. Momo Fali is going camping and says she’s packing some big words for the trip; I’ll let you all know how that turns out when she gets back to me. On to Tom’s winning words.
The first word Tom used was obfuscation; meaning to confuse, bewilder or stupefy. That flawlessly describes the POP QUIZ. The second word submitted by Tom was eschew; meaning to abstain or keep away from; shun; avoid. Again, it describes the POP QUIZ perfectly. Tom also used prodigious; an equally good word, but since the other two did such a good job describing my ability to conjure up a total lack of interest in ALL of my readers (yes, I’m talking to both of you), I decided to go with those. I am not losing faith! I know that some of you enjoy this little endeavor into the wonderful world of verbiage, so we will venture forward knowing that someone is benefitting somewhere. The BWW Homepage is open 24/7; don’t be shy.
