Word For The Day, Monday, 1/28/13
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".
sub rosa; nounc
confidentially; secretly; privately.
Etymology: 192025; < Latin sub rosā literally, under the rose, from the ancient use of the rose at meetings as a symbol of the sworn confidence of the participants
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.
A sub rosa deal was apparently struck to keep Sen Menendez' predilection for underage HOORS from public view.

No pushing at the door please!
The “Tin-Foil-Hat” League’s claims of a sub-rosa evil plot to disarm law-abiding Americans doesn’t seem so weird after all.
"...I got it,I got it...she's the little old Italian lady who always puts to much Prosciutto on my subs at the sub shop"
the 60 minutes interview with Obama and Hildebeast was conducted with a sub-rosa agreement that no “uncomfortable” questions would be pursued.
morning to yinz
There is no such thing as “too much Prosciutto”. LOL!
A+++ a veritable lovefest.
excellent answer!! A+_+++
At lying, Hill’s a virtuosa
The truth’s always hidden, sub rosa
When she makes a mistake
What diff does it make?
Brilliant and truthful? Well, no sir!
Patriots who led a formerly sub rosa existence, are now stepping out of the shadows and making their voices heard.
Good morning. Remember the “campus shooting” in North Houston last week? Turns out the targeted victim “bumped into” the thug earlier in the day - he and a buddy teamed up - not sure where the gun came from or if it was in a car or already in a backpack - but there were TWO guys involved in the shooting. And whoever actually did the shooting shot his own partner! lol Both are in custody...so watch out who you bump into!
It was heartbreaking. Just around the bend in the road the trucks lined the roadway...
...they went on forever. The trucks lined both sides of the road and all the fireman were saluting us the entire way.
...I was somewhere towards the end of the line following the casket. There was something eerie and sad about seeing his jacket hanging right where he left it when he started his last call.
I’m so sorry Ti - I know this was a heartbreaking weekend for you all.
An amusing side story...the state sent a command center and a number of state personnel. They picked across the street from us to stage the command...directly across from my next door neighbor. I was chatting with them last night at the station. I asked them HOW did they end up setting up right directly across from our strangest anti-social neighbor. They laughed and said that they figured out they found the squirrel-eist one in the ‘hood within the first hour.
A++++ for musical hw
And amazingly written before anyone knew of Rosannes Barr or O’Donnel.
Watched “The Hunger Games” over the weekend. A little slow to get going and a bit predictable, but a good movie.
Warm and drizzly here-
I’ve liked that word since I read about the symbolism in a favorite book-
Obama’s minions channel Nixon’s,
But their clumsy sub rosa schemes
Lack the polish and subtlety of
Tricky Dick in his random dreams
He always played his cards close
In every public word and speech
And imposed banishment on those
Who dared to blab or over reach
Obama can’t leash up his capos
They air every private thought-
With little loyalty, any “secret”
Can always be traded or bought
The word “amateur” comes to mind...
One of the rare days I get to brag about Houston weather.... it was mid 70’s Saturday and we ate at a Mexican joint with windows open it felt fabulous
LMAO-It just had to be that dumb...
I saw yesterday that Silly Jackson Lee is rated one of the worst people in DC to work for-everything from throwing objects at staff to chasing them down the halls as she screams “you can’t escape”. Where is the EEOC when they are needed? I would have no qualms about suing her crazy, fat ass for acting out like that...
I am pricing airline tickets to visit you! LOL It is COLD up here in the frozen tundra of libland.
Amazingly, even some people in (gasp!) Vermont are apparently pissed-I think I can hear the mountains of Africa falling into the sea...
The freezing rain happened over night. Most schools had 2 hour delay today. It was 34 when I left for work this morning. Raining like heck right now.
I’m heading down there for a job this weekend.
A+++ we need as many as we can get!
It is so transparent!! A+++
My brother told my SIL not to watch the Houston news bc it’d drive her nurs LOL!
A+++ I’d never heard of him, nice song!
Are you familiar with the Polish Prince, from Canonsburg, PA?
A+++ quite a rosy sub it is too!
My Melody of Love. Had it on 45.
Had you read it?
A+++ amateur hour going on its fifth year
We got it. Fedgov didn’t open til NOON!! Schools all had two hr delay. The ridiculous thing is a forecast for mid60s tomorrow and weds!
We’re going to get whiplash this week. Up to the 60s for a couple days, then back down to a high of 23 on Friday.
Quite a contrast with the 90s which saw song titles like “stink fist” by fuel and “dead and Bloated” by stone temple pilots. I just have to ROR.
That is H O R R I B L E ! ? !
My baby turns sweet 16 today!
our high will be around 45 the next couple of days. it’s all icy right now, though it’s expected to be up to 32 this afternoon.
