Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Since there is a botany reference in the definitions, it poses the question:

Can a fungus be fugacious?

I had a fugacious dream last night that included three Dallas Cowboys’ cheerleaders, one porn star, and a few geishas.

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.

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???

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.

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.

Fugacious

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...

Thank you!

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.

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.

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.
