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. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the word of the day; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-) Practice makes perfect.....post on....
I know some of you wonder why I post WFTD just after midnight every night. The reason is simple. I am on the west coast. If I post it when I get up, it would be late morning for many of you, and I do not want any of you to think that I forgot to post it. Also, I know many of you are irked by the fact that you do not always receive a grade and critique, or that the critique is non-existent. Once again, by the time I get up and get around to this thread, it is upwards of 200 posts. My apologies if any of you are annoyed beyond belief.
1. Fraudulently substituted for something else; not being what is purports to be; not genuine; spurious; counterfeit.
2. Hypothetical; supposed.
Etymology: Supposititious is from Latin suppositicius, from suppositus, past participle of supponere, "to put under, to substitute," from sub-, "under" + ponere, "to put." It is related to suppose.
Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!
Pitt looked good you snot. they looked a heck of a lot better than Syracuse. And as for the toothless hillbilly moonshiners from KY...well, like i said, go ahead, get cocky.
Hillary is lying in bed wide-eyed one night, and starts poking Bill in the back. "Wake up," she says.
Bill just turns over and groans. Again, she pokes him the back and says, "Bill, wake up!"
"What do you want?" he grunts in a sleepy voice.
"I'm going to the bathroom," she says.
"You woke me up just to tell me you're going to the bathroom?"
"No," Hillary says. "I want you to save my place."
CBS/ABC/NBC/CNN/MSNBC/PBS are virtually useless as a source of factual information regarding Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Meanwhile, KY spanks Utah by 20 points.
Well, did you expect her to just eat you raw?
