In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of Word for the Day.
gamboled or gambolled, gamboling or gambolling, gam·bols
A playful skipping or frolicking about.
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.

Yeah, it is different, for starters we can print the word slut, not "c---".
Rise and Shine.....tis a dreary rainy day here in the once frozen tundra (soggy mess instead, must be global warming). Cheer me up and get an extra +.
Up and dancing around a poker table as we speak!
Good word. Bump.
“Hey! Leave that basketball alone! Use the other balls to practice with! That’s our gambol!” - a referee
I must now venture out into the world and gambol my health away.
If this were Star Trek, I'd be wearing a red shirt, but it's green today.
IN a mere 4 days, Spring officially arrives, and is celebrated in a gambol manner with the shedding of heavy jackets and sweaters to thinner clothes and refreshment for the old eyes.
Barack and wife take their vacations, love to gambol
Golf and shopping, shoot some hoops, perhaps just amble
Back home, four dollar gas
The unemployed are on their ass
And the deficit economy’s in a shamble
If you keep using rhyme, you’re gonna put about a million MFAers (Masters of Fine Arts, that’s who writes American poetry these days.....mostly for each other) out of work.
clever. I almost smiled. A+++
mmm, does spring come that early in Boston? LOL
this election season will be violent, scary. A+++
Me? With my B.S. in math?
NRO’s Jim Geraghty quotes in his “Morning Jolt” newsletter:
“If your wife catches you with the Playboy with the Meghan McCain interview, don’t claim you were reading it for the articles.”
LOL good one.
such style! love the attitude she’s sporting. hope she has fun today.
I got thoroughly soaked at the park this morning, with lightning and thunder all around but at least it didn’t hail. I gamboled back to the car, wrapped up in a big towel, and came home.
Good morning Ti - I got my garden all planted over the past two days - 80 degrees and I have a tiny bit of a sunburn on my nose (despite my best efforts)....can you envision having to turn your air conditioner on in mid March? Sending warmth your way.....
We’ve been having a heat wave. 70s during the day, mid 50s at night. Sleeping with the windows cracked open. Big rumbling thunderstorm in the wee hours.
Where is Al Gore? He should be all over this.
She just finished the first 3 days of standardized testing, so she’s happy not to have to do that today.
She got selected for County Band, too. I didn’t even know they did such a thing for 5th graders.
She is such a damn hobag it’s not even funny and what’s worse is she needs to scream it from the mountaintops.
She’s only missing green nail polish ; ) shes a cutie!
Oh I have meant to tell you all: I got an email from my electricity provider the other day giving me the opportunity to save the environment by signing up to purchase Carbon Offsets for $5.95 a month! Seriously....it is starting.
Do you have electricity supplier choice down there? I can decide who I buy my power generation from (distribution and that is still from the local utility).
I do not voluntarily pay extra to use companies that make green power.
Good grief carbon offset they must be insane!
A+++ off to the showers with you!
Al “Massage My Lower Chakra” Gore is busy at the moment, but do call on him again soon.
Just give me the $. A++
hopefully, it’s a little late for that scam. I shudder to think of the elderly being suckered in.
Grow a beard and start writing about deer going to the bathroom in the woods and you’ve got a second career as an English teacher at any American university. And with your math degree, at least you’ll be able to figure out the mean score from 5 tests, which is something my college English teacher couldn’t do.
Arithmetic mean or geometric mean?
We can choose our supplier but this isn’t mandatory, it is a “Feel good” donation, monthly. lol
Exactly - and there will be idiots who do it thinking they are buying something
Spring is a time of renewal, and now you can help support the environment through a low, flat monthly fee. Your contribution will go toward the purchase of carbon offsets to reduce the harmful effects of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases. Donations will also be made to EarthShare of Texas®, which supports 38 environmental programs right here in Texas.
Choose from two program options:

It is 68 here-breezy and mostly cloudy-a typical March day-
As Obama is squeezed harder
His back is against the wall
But he plays the blame game-
Digs in and continues to stall
He ignores that we are not happy-
We don’t laugh and gambol about
And every time we buy some gas
We just go back home to pout
So have fun, king Louis wannabe-
Both you and Michelle Antoinette
Come November you’ll be leaving
Without the limo, golf cart or jet...
“38 environmental programs right here in Texas.” Okay-now I know what to ask my state rep to lobby against first when the budget comes up-and I’m a pretty green sort of person, as long as it is privately funded...
We have a co-op out here, and for the last 6 years or so, you can sign up to get most of your electricity from wind power-the coop gets over 27% of energy from windpower, and it increases every year. I signed up for it the first year, and it does save money per kilowatt hr. in summer. But those wind farms it comes from are in West Texas-I would not sign up if it was in any other state. We don’t have so many NIMBYs in the west Texas desert, like Cali does-windpower works better without them...
a monthly hosing? RME
What a party we will be having when we see them leave our White House.
“idiots who do it thinking they are buying something”
That is really a special kind of stupid-don’t they even get a T-shirt?
You just know they’ll pocket a bunch of stuff when they leave-I’ll bet they will make Hillary look honest and restrained...
The University of Dallas, xsteen’s alma mater, just sent me an email soliciting funds for their project called Crucifixes for the Classroom. They have one in some but not in all classrooms and so what a great idea to solicit funds, it totally sucked me in. Georgetown probably solicits funds to keep them OUT.
Love the “don’t even get a t-shirt” comment T5~ Yes Ti, a monthly hosing is exactly right
Oh I hate that commercial~ lol
Neo is creeped out by it which is why i wanted to blip it to him. xsgirls think it’s hilarious, and word is my xsnephew does a great imitation of it.
