Word For The Day, Thursday, December 20, 2012 apopemptic
dictionaries ad nauseam | 20 December 2012 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 12/20/2012 3:31:11 AM PST by secret garden


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".

apopemptic \ap-uh-PEMP-tik\, adjective
1. Pertaining to leave-taking or departing; valedictory.
noun:
1. Obsolete. A farewell address; valedictory.


Example sentences:
The others followed suit and, politely apopemptic, vanished into the night.
-- Sōseki Natsume, Aiko Ito, Graeme Wilson, I Am a Cat

Only to the fool who believes all truths debatable, who believes true virtue resides not in men but in eulogies, true sorrow not in partings but in apopemptic hymns…
-- John Gardner, Jason and Medeia

Etymology:
Rising to prominence in the middle 1700s, apopemptic derives from the Greek apopemptikós, pertaining to 'sending away.'

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....

Rise and shine, but no hurry. I’m up due to a stressed-out dog who hates storms.

Will Hillary’s testimony before Congress (if it ever comes) be apopemptic? Hoping, hoping...

By tomorrow afternoon, the dang white stuff will come down...several inches are expected...I am thinking it’s too warm to last long. I was out in a sweater yesterday and not a coat.

I opened the door to let mine out this AM, and he looked at the ice falling and stared at me, as if to say, “You’ve got to be kidding. I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck, and I’m not going out there.” And he turned around and went back to his bed.

Apopemptic

Technical name for citrate of magnesia. It's fizzy and sweet like soda pop and it's definitely emptic, bolt of lightening emptic. Apopemptic.

What galls me is how the State Department and the MSM are coming down on John Bolton for speaking the truth.

Yes, it’s time for that first real snow of the year. Rain starts later today, turning to snow around midnight. 1-3 inches by Saturday.

I think his second wife, the former nun, played a major role in revealing God’s presence to him. If he had served on the court, I would have hated to see who the big zero would have chosen to replace him. A+ for you.

Perhaps he would have retired during GWB.

Also, we have to hope that the man who took that seat, Anthony Kennedy, hangs on for four more years, Scalia too.

I think you are right, he has been in ill health for some time, it’s likely he would have had to retire awhile back.

it’s funny, xsboy told me last night that he saw that judge bork was trending on twitter yesterday. he noticed how all the libs were REVELING in his death, and asked why did they hate him so much, so we had to fill him.

and btw, xshub got an email from Cheaperthandirt last night saying they were resuming sales of guns. They claimed that because of the recent deluge of gun sales that they were not able to keep to their shipping within 24 hours pledge and so they stopped taking orders temporarily to reassess that pledge etc. Smells like BS to me, but they are back in biz.

‘Til “O” slithers off, apopemptic
I’ll continue to feel apoplectic
Filled with anger and rage
That the American Age
Has been fast-tracked towards apocalyptic

A+ for you. And we thought waiting out the clintoon was painful...I can only hope that some of the idiots who voted for him get burned by his idiotic policies. Although I’m convinced most of them don’t pay taxes anyway.

Chilly and windy here-I swear it nearly blew me right off the trail at the top of the hill-I stayed to the tree cover after that...

While Hillary is hiding out
With her head injury excuse
Is she composing an apopemptic
To escape the Obama mafia noose?

It seems Obama’s minions have
Planned her political demise
Put they didn’t count on Bill
Taking away their latest prize

The way that he holds grudges
And never forgets a slight
Means he won’t allow Hillary
To go gently into that goodnight...
