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....

Don't you love me? I'm a fun guy.

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.

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
