It's no surprise that my memory is failing me. I'm approaching my mid life crisis, or rather what I suppose will be my "mid-life" assuming I live to be 80+, but you never know. I also had a hefty dose of momnesia with the two rugrats, that had to have knocked my IQ down a couple of points just through the pregnancy. But I could have sworn I had a better vocabulary than the single syllable commands and corrections I now direct at those same rugrats. So I've decided to start fresh, perhaps learn a few new words I never even knew the first time around. Here is a series I'll call "word of the week". You can play along and maybe learn a few new words to amaze your friends.
Farandole - (far an dole) n. 1. a spirited circle dance of Provencal derivation. 2. the music for this circle dance.
See, learning is fun.
