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.
I would think that the CJ might be discomfited by having his cousin front and center for this argument.

No pushing at the door please!
Slushy, snowy, slippery commute in this AM.
When asked why he went across town to get bread and milk, Johnny said, “I discomfit there ‘cause my reg’lar store was out”.
A+++ for use of the vernacular ; )
2 hour delay here. I thought they might have cancelled, but they only have a 3 day week.
We’ve got about 4 wet inches with a couple more expected today. Yuck. Discomfiting.
I am discomfited by a lot of the news I read here today: Florida student suspended and charges brought against him for his refusal to “stomp on Jesus”, Assad reported to be dead — assassinated by his Iranian bodyguard, Rove predicts GOP likely to approve same sex marriage, etc.
My Depends are a discomfit...
Though a Kenyan, Barack bellows,”I’m fit”
But for four years, does naught but discomfit
Patriots on the right
No Constitution in sight
As Obama decides to “Mein Kampf” it
Is that the Assad who didn’t know what “jet lag” was?
In case you are discomfited about what to do with your palms from yesterday:
2 hour delay here as well, but although Fairfax and Arlington had decided by 5am, xsbaby’s school didn’t call well after 6 when i had already gotten her up and she had showered. SOOO annoying. she specifically didn’t set her alarm and asked me to get her up, in the off chance there was cancellation/delay, but it did no good since they call it so late. Her spring break isn’t until the 8th of April. This will be the first time since she’s gone to a non-Catholic school that they have not been off on Good Friday. i will let her take Friday off this week, just on principle.
it is discomfiting. A+++
well i imagine so!! A+++
oh my dad always used to make crosses from them and i do them now too, right there in the pew. Well, except yesterday since i was a lector.
