TBWCYL Day 245 - Vocab Lesson

So, I got to yesterday's task and had flashbacks of grade school because yesterday was vocabulary day. There were 26 words, one for each letter, and I was to try to expand my vocabulary. After a night of sleep, here is what I remember

Zoophyte - An animal that resembles a plant

Nugatory - being useless, of no real value

Yoni - tantric in the vagina

Galumphed - to move heavily or clumsily

Walleyed - having an abnormal amount of white space showing on your eyeball

I can't think of any others but I would guess if I heard a couple of the other words in there I would be able to give you a definition. So, I got a little knowledge yesterday.

That is all,

Well I hadn't heard four of those. Haha. "Galumphed" is a term I've heard my mom use a few times...

I wish there were plants that look like animals.

I used to have a word of the day calender and at first this made me happy but then it got stressful. A week would go by and then another week and all of a sudden I had 12339487987 words glaring up at me, angry that I hadn't read them. So I burned the calender.

My wife gets a Mary Englebright calendar every year and it would sit on the microwave, always about 10 days behind. She now has a desk so she got it out of the house. Its condition is now not known to me.

The calendar is now up to date as long as I am working in the office.

Ooh nugatory is a good word!
