Word For The Day, Monday, 3/25/12
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. to grow or develop quickly; flourish: The town burgeoned into a city. He burgeoned into a fine actor. 2. to begin to grow, as a bud; put forth buds, shoots, etc., as a plant (often followed by out, forth ).
Etymology: 12751325; (noun) Middle English burjon, burion; shoot, bud < Anglo-French burjun, burg ( e ) on; Old French burjon < Vulgar Latin *burriōne ( m ), accusative of *burriō, derivative of Late Latin burra wool, fluff (compare bourrée , bureau), presumably from the down covering certain buds; (v.) Middle English burg ( e ) onen, borgen < Anglo-French, Old French, derivative of the noun
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. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.

No pushing at the door please!
And obamacare arguments are set to begin burgeoning in the Supreme Court in a bit.
Obama is rapidly burgeoning into a first class race pimp!
There is a burgeoning movement to impeach obama.
When buying votes, Barry goes splurgin’
Makes the trillion debt deficit burgeon
But when oil’s in sight
His purse strings stay tight
And he cuts like a mad little surgeon
anyone who wants to follow someone on twitter re; obamacare arguments— @philipklein is going to tweet updates as he can during breaks from inside the courtroom. He’s a senior writer for the Washington Examiner.
A+++ there’s nothing left to say about that obamanation in the WH.
if i had a son, he’d look like TRAYVAN! A+++ my head nearly exploded when he said that.
A+++ i wish it luck!
A+++ $ is no object with campaign, clearly. and let’s build that bottom half of the pipeline, connected up to NOTHING.
it all has to be about him, the malignant narcissist in chief.
doubtful they’d even permit him a new heart at age 71, likely they’d deem him more than half dead by then. A+++
I am burgeoning. Thank you pizza and chocolate ice cream.
No, there isn’t. There is an election coming up, though. I’d put my effort into that.
You sure you have that Twitter name right? I checked @philipklein and he has never tweeted anything. Zero tweets.
