Word For The Day, Monday, 5/6/13
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".
1. fleeting; transitory: a sensational story with but a fugacious claim on the public's attention. 2. Botany . falling or fading early.
Etymology: 162535; < Latin fugāci- (stem of fugāx apt to flee, fleet, derivative of fugere to flee + -ous
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.
The childhood of my children has felt quite fugacious. Xsbaby has finished her last day of high school.

No pushing at the door please!
Truthy can you ping the class and please send me your latest ping list in email? thanks! can’t seem to find my ping list for some reason.
Can a fungus be fugacious?
the word in italian for mushroom is FUNGI. not very appetizing, but i love ‘em! A+++
HERE it is, finally found it!
Pinging for teacher.
well the double ping oughta haul some butts in here! thanks, truthy!
I had a fugacious dream last night that included three Dallas Cowboys’ cheerleaders, one porn star, and a few geishas.
yikes, truthy, what did you have for dinner that got you so worked up???
Sushi. (Well, that explains the geishas.)
Don't you love me? I'm a fun guy.
for some reason it doesn’t look as appetizing coming up from the ground like that! much as a steak doesn’t look appetizing when walking around attached to a cow ; ) A+++
i DO love you! : )
Because of my black thumb, I need to find a non-fugacious weed to transplant to my front yard to replace the unsightly weeds that are already there.
Nope! Not touchin’ this one! Too fugacious!
My Spell czech doesn’t like that word.
try a spell bosnian ; ) A+++
i like vinca for that. i plant it in my flower beds and at least in the front it has choked out any weeds. It flowers too.
The liberal brain is quite spacious
Intelligent thoughts are fugacious
But their urge to debate
Is apparently great
Lacking logic, they’re vile and loquacious
Islanders decided to give the Pens a game. The loss was an exciting game. the isles first goal was pretty funny to see their celebration, it was almost like OMG we scored, can you believe it???
Three Dallas cheerleaders? Did they fail to get to the end zone too?
lacking logic: lefts view of the weather underground bombings and boston bombing
Yes, the last two games were much more “interesting” than the first. I give the Isles credit for waking up about 4 periods into the series. They were tenacious.
Yesterday’s game was a roller coaster. Both teams blew 2-goal leads and let it all hang out in OT.
Sadly, yes! I had a feeled goal.
Oh, Gus the gardener’s gone now.
And you went with him too.
The fungus here reminds me of
The fun Gus is having with you.

Though pugnacious and slugnacious the pitchers fame was as fugacious as a bungee jumper with an extra long cord.
It is 52 and getting cloudy again-at this time of the year, it is usually in the 60’s by 10 am-I hope it stays cooler to screw up the global warming agenda and make it look more ridiculous...
The Bengazi video excuse was
Fugacious from the beginning-
No thinking person believed it
Even with all the spinning
Now, it is all unraveling
Like cover-ups always will
It even happened to Nixon-
A lawyer with more skill
Witnesses won’t stay shut-up
They demand a fall from grace-
Those who tried to gag them
Will likely lose jobs and face...
A+++ i don’t know from bung ; )
oh i so hope the unravel continues! ! A++++
Well, he has that right-somewhere, Nixon is no doubt greatly amused by the use of his playbook...
I remember the late night comedy TV routines with “Nixon” in the garden of the WH trying to dispose of tapes, or yelling at his minions, with every other word bleeped.
No, but a polite happy fungii would be considered fungracious ...
A++ fungi gracias ; )
My dad is being moved from the rehab hospital back to assisted living and his Aggie baseball cap is missing. I am unhappy. So is he.
3.5, but who’s counting? ;-)
The Benghazhi narrative has seemed fugacious. How could ANYBODY consider Hills for Prex after seeing her “What difference does it make?” temper tantrum?
BTW, I was waiting patiently at the door until 8:30 AM but had to give up after not being called/ I had PT plus a meeting with the accountant this AM.
sorry, i am not as quick out the door at home as i had been prior to my leg issue, i am getting in later, so 9 ish was the best i could do.
Those who would have us support her are precisely the ones who have sickened me of her. Just ridic.
I’d much rather vote for somebody who has, you know, done something. Sure, I’d vote for her over Plugs or hillary.
But we do have other possibilities. Cruz seems to have the right ideas and backbone.
BTW, xsbaby had her last day of high school last friday. She’s off this week, next week they have their senior trip to FL, then she has two weeks of an internship [seniors have to secure for themselves a 2 week internship that they then go back and report on as a last thing] She graduates on June 8th. She also was recently inducted into the National Honor Society, quite an achievement for an LD kid like her. This is how you know that we pay WAY TOO MUCH in tuition— we have to pay no out of pocket expense for this trip to FL. They are flying there, hotel for 4 nights, entrance fees for Seaworld, Universal Studios and they are to see the Blue Man group show somewhere there too, and food. We pay for any spending $ she needs for souvenirs and for food in airports etc. I am wondering if for some reason your kid doesn’t go, if you get some rebate of some sort. I am thinking NOT.
Cruz is fearless, as noted by Carville. and brilliant.
