A Decent Vocabulary Will Go A Long Way

A Decent Vocabulary Will Go A Long Way

I don’t know about you, but I really love language.  There is nothing quite as satisfying as being able to choose the exact right word for a given situation, and, thanks to the lovely internet, I come across new words to add to my ever-expanding vocabulary every day. I thought, I’d create a new Thursday special feature with cool words.

Why Thursday? I keep getting “Thor’s Day” and “Castiel the angel of Thursday” stuck in my head…nearly every week, so Thursday needed a special feature. (It really could be worse. I promise. How would you pick a day?)Plus, it is the day before the week ends, and everybody needs a bit of an intellectual boost to get through Friday, right?

Today’s word (duh duh dun):

petrichor

Yes, I had to pick a word that I first heard in a Doctor Who.  I couldn’t resist.

‘Til next time,

Jessica
