Word For The Day, Tuesday, April 10, 2012
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".
a present; gratuity; tip.

ELISABETH HASSELBECK [Deadpan]: I know you're a Republican.
Trust me Barby, you are a democrat, we can tell.
Thanks. I used it on FaceBook and a guy said he had Marbury +6 1/2 points.
Due to an overblown sense of entitlement that pervades our society, cumshaw has become baksheesh.
My father absolutely refuses to allow me to pay for anything, so I have been trying to at least leave the cumshaw when we are out. Alas, today is my last chance as I will be leaving southwest Florida to return to Virginia tonight :-(
Buy him a new wallet, put some cash in it, and give it to him just as you are leaving.
Of course, make sure it’s a style he likes or he may throw it away without looking and then Uncle Leo will end up with the money.
There’s an idea!
On the other hand, that would royally torque him off, and after finally putting an end to 15 or so year black hole - the last thing on earth I want to do is torque off my dad!
They are too far apart at the moment to capture it in a picture - but he and his grand daughter are in the same room both totally engrossed in their computers - it’s hilarious!
Hazy and 74-there is supposed to be rain on the way later in the week-
Does Obama leave a cumshaw
When golfing or dining out?
His sort usually does not-
They are stingy beyond a doubt
They believe they are so special
All should follow in their wake
And be honored, never to remark
Anything they choose to take
When he’s tossed out, a metal detector
Should be at OUR white house door-
He and Michelle’s pockets searched
So they can’t steal still more
I hope you are having a great time with family!
Just Ozzie Guillen and John Derbyshire, both of whom could have used the cumshaw: think before you speak.
Maybe he’d give the wallet to Jeffrey.
I think Derb forgot the final rule:
“Never write this down and disavow all knowledge if questioned.”
The park ranger?
Santorum “suspends” his campaign. He wasn’t going to win here and that would be embarrassing.
He probably has his own handmade wallet anyway.
Thank you, my FRiend. Spending my last hour with them right now. :-(
Aw, let your father buy you some meals...you are way to skinny anyway ;^)...it probably makes him happy.
Not me. I’m still here cumshawing you! [/sarc]
LOL! I cooked Easter dinner and dinner Monday night - other than that we ate out every night. Now I’m home and so I’ve got to figure out dinner for tonight - I think I will fix Chinese take out :-)!!!!!!!
OK, overslept after a CPR last night. classroom coming
