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.
[French minatoire, from Late Latin mintrius, from Latin mintus, past participle of minr, to threaten; see minacious.]
ROTFLMAO..........what an idiot.
‘’malevolent’’, a similar word with similar meaning.
Sure it’s similar.......but we are here to learn new words to extend our vocabulary. Welcome to the WFTD classroom.
It’s as minatory as a TSA employee grabbing your junk. A+++
I happen to have an excellent vocabulary, thank you. Here’s a word you won’t find in Websters; ‘’misandgry’’ It is hatred of men by women..
Thought it was a mythical creature.
Please excuse. I typed a response before reading the thread.
If it is not in a dictionary, we can’t use it here as a WFTD. Look, I was trying to be welcoming, not insulting. We always enjoy new faces here.
no problem.....I was amused.
Soother's out the country so we know this wasnt the scene in the Soother HAAShold las night, but i'm betting at HobbesHQ something similar was going dahn ; )
My DH took me out to dinner on Monday night, had to change all his plans to do it. I was on call last night. Then he came home last night with a card and candy. I am amazed.
i just want to go on the record and say that sex is not just for valentines day, and i feel sorry for the poor saps that wait for that day for that purpose ; ) i didn’t see xshub yesterday because he has biz people in town for a meeting today that he had to entertain last night. he asked me to go but i had no desire to be sociable with that group. we went to dinner on Sunday PM and he gave me a gift cert for a facial along with a very cute card. even xsgirls think val day is stupid. though xsjr was on CLOUD nine with her visit from slapshot, and xsteen got a very nice and meaningful valentine from someone also.
It isn’t a word you can find very easily because it’s a word liberal academia doesn’t like many to know. It doesn’t fit into the whole feminist ‘’women as victim/male as ‘’oppressors’’ ‘’misogynist’’ thing. Sorry, didn’t mean to be so...flinty. I thought your response as a bit patronizing but that was my mistake. Mea culpa.
Back in high school, DH and I started going together exclusively on that date, so it has a sort of anniversary theme to it for us.
i can’t even conceive of going back that far with someone, to HIGH SCHOOL! dang! the girls and i talk about what a nerd their father was in HS and how had i met him then i’d prob not wanted any part of him. God brought us together at the right time, obviously. and that was 30 years ago give or take. our 28th wedding anniversary will be this june.
well, technically, I was a high school senior and he was in college.
You’ll find it just fine if you spell it right.
