Word For The Day, Monday, 12/12/11
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".
1. lasting a very short time; short-lived; transitory: the ephemeral joys of childhood. 2. lasting but one day: an ephemeral flower
Etymology: C16: from Greek ephēmeros lasting only a day, from hēmera day]
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.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
