WORD OF THE DAY

Cartographer• \car-TAH-gruh-fer \ • Noun - One that makes maps

The 14th century artist backed away from his world map…pleased with the colors, shapes of the continents, & the symmetrical arrangement of the landmasses. “It’s a good thing we won’t be using this for navigation,” mused the Genoan sailor to his first mate. “That big land mass painted by this ‘so-called’ cartographer between us & Indies would keep our hands off the spice trade for years.”

WORD OF THE DAY

Emaciated • \ih-MAY-shee-ate-ed\ • verb - Wasted away physically 1: Loss of flesh so as to become very thin 2: to be feeble

The thin, pinch-faced clerk heaved a deep sigh. It was either pay $250 for a prime parking spot from his emaciated bank account, or walk ten blocks from a free public lot that had feeble lighting, and heavily cracked pavement…weeds fighting their way to the thin winter sunshine.

WORD OF THE DAY

Portentous • \por-TEN-tuss\ • Adjective – 1: of, relating to, or constituting a portent 2: eliciting amazement or wonder: prodigious 3 *a: being a grave or serious matter b : self-consciously solemn or important: pompous c: ponderously excessive

Nicholas Abercrombie dressed in his most elaborate ceremonial garb for the portentous event. “It isn’t every day that you base jump off a 200 foot tall windmill,” he crowed. Obviously, his idea of a portentous occasion versus a silly one was a matter of perspective.
