When one excogitates the IRS and how it has handled it's responsibilities and then the NSA, the realization of impending doom grows stronger.

The endless articles on this administration's polices are mind numbing.

Rise and shine! It’s a new day and the NSA is getting bored with your usual boring phone conversations. Try to liven it up a bit today! It’s SUMMER.

While cogitating over this thread, I pondered how to explain why cogitate and excogitate have the same meaning.

After considerable excogitating, I was unable to come up with a sentence using today's word.

Hey, wait a minute............

Unfortunately Mr. Smith didn't take the time to excogitate the perils of traveling with a four year old.

It’s time for the government to excogitate Obamacare.

You should have excogitated it and you would have thought it through more thoroughly. Only difference I can see. A++

Have either of you read a Sarah Addison Allen book? Garden Spells is a great summertime book. Her books tend to be about an ordinary summer with a slight mystical flair. Enchanting stories for a summer day.

From The Free Dictionary:

Cogitate:

Excogitate: So, what's the difference?

FWIW, in Moby Thesaurus, cogitate is listed as a synonym of excogitate and excogitate is listed as a synonym of cogitate.

Good morning Teacher, please excuse my "skipping schoolishness". I have Excogitating circumstances! (What do you mean, that doesn't mean what I think it means?!!)

The NSA is going to be thrilled with our phone conversations and emails as we try to explain to one of our candidates that he didn't excogitate his plan to decline the offer that he already accepted because the govt is not moving fast enough to suit him. Idiot.

My team may have overexcogitated and that’s why they lost to the Heat. I still believe they are the better team.

Unintended consequences are the natural result of failure to excogitate.

Oh, how fun. I went for a long weekend with DH and a baby daughter once. Not a romantic weekend, he was in conferences all day, while I strolled the village. Loved the place.

Happy Anniversary! Let the romance begin.

Yes, do not wear 3 large metal bracelets on each arm and expect to waltz on through.

Wear some socks unless you welcome the idea of strolling through security barefoot.

And take everything out of your pockets. Everything.

Do Obama’s minions understand
That we listen-and we hear
Or excogitate before rushing
To put their mouths in gear?

From all the scandals stinking
Like a trash dump in the heat
It appears a hotel break-in
May be the next dubious feat

Because following that playbook
With its secrets, thrill and dirt
Already cost the author his office-
And barely left him with his shirt...

How is your new puppy getting along?

Buffy will eat ANYTHING, even another dog’s poop it appears. Good Lord deliver me. She has her dog obedience class tonight. She will be learning to “sit”. Last week’s assignment was just to click and give her a treat so she knows what happens when she hears the click.

Thank you! I’ve never had a dog that ate crap, but I’ve heard that from a couple of people about their puppies. Husky girl only went to a few obedience classes-Huskies seem well behaved as long as they are not left outside off-leash-EVER-they are escape artists and run for a living-even my old girl isn’t above giving it a go...

My other four dogs-guarding breeds and a herding dog-went the full monte on the obedience classes-they were all very headstrong.
