Word For The Day, Monday, 7/22/13
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".
welter; verb, noun
1. to roll, toss, or heave, as waves or the sea. 2. to roll, writhe, or tumble about; wallow, as animals (often followed by about ): pigs weltering about happily in the mud. 3. to lie bathed in or be drenched in something, especially blood. 4. to become deeply or extensively involved, associated, entangled, etc.: to welter in setbacks, confusion, and despair. noun 5. a confused mass; a jumble or muddle: a welter of anxious faces. 6. a state of commotion, turmoil, or upheaval: the welter that followed the surprise attack. 7. a rolling, tossing, or tumbling about, as or as if by the sea, waves, or wind: They found the shore through the mighty welter.
Etymology: 12501300; Middle English, frequentative (see -er6 ) of welten to roll, Old English weltan; cognate with Middle Dutch welteren, Low German weltern to roll
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.
Everyone was weltering in the Twitters yesterday, over Geraldo's topless selfie. hilarity ensued. While he has supposedly [ahem] yanked the tweet, i am sure that it will live on in infamy.

No pushing at the door please!
Greatest thing since Weiner’s escapades.
The weiner wars are on...
So, how were the weltering waves of Amelia Earhardt?
I weltered my latest illness, almost feel normal this morning.
sad when it’s the only thing they know how to do.
it was great. there were a few rainy afternoons towards the end of the week, but it didn’t really interfere with anything we wanted to do. hard to go back to work, and i have a lot of it sitting here looking at me.
glad you are feeling better!
It took me until Tuesday afternoon last week to really get back into motion at work.
Sarah is going to the ortho today to get all the prep work done. Thursday she gets the braces on her upper teeth.
A+++ he continues to be loathsome. At mass on Sat, they prayed for UNITY in FL, i guess bc of the trayvon verdict. I am going to market Explorer89’s idea— a tshirt that says, I am Nicole Brown Simpson....
Read Brad Thor’s latest book on the Fed Reserve this weekend. Not sure I am up to O’s blah, blah. Fiction is much better.
she will have a sore mouth for a day or two. my ortho gave them some spacers to put between their teeth for a few days to try to open up some space, but i don’t think they really do very much.
Better off with a “Creepy Ass Cracker” t-shirt.
xshub and xsbaby just picked up my pups from Petsmart Pet hotel. Can’t wait to see them when i get home. she texted me a pic of them in their “suite” there.
Detroit’s in the bankruptcy smelter
Awash in its liberal welter
So the unions’ big Libs
Are extending their fibs
As they ask for more government shelter
A++++ ridic is Detroit.
A University of Florida linebacker will have plenty of time to welter behind bars and (later) on the bench for the 1st 2 games of the season after being arrested in Houston for barking at a police dog. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3045784/posts
saw that, seems a bit heavy-handed but maybe there was more to the story. A+++
WHile last week’s heat wave left many sweltering and hibernating is their homes/basements, some of us who *despise* the winter weltered in it’s glory, guzzling water and gatorade and beer thru-out the day and evenings.
it’s amazing that it was cooler in FL than in VA while we were on vaca last week. it was humid but temps were always in the 80s. ocean breeze was nice too.
Wow. He makes Cromartie look like an amature!
MrB i need your help in deciphering this pun. i am pun-challenged!
Gone for a week and they changed management at my parking garage across from my ofc. Same people there for the past 20 years, now it’s new peeps. Cannot log in to my voicemail, bc it’s not taking my password. Cannot log into the timekeeping feature, bc it was time to change the password and it’s not accepting my answer to the security question [what is the city of your birth: i tried Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh, PA. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. NONE WORK! ok, i am not wrong on the city of my birth, so something is awry here.]
Can’t place it right off, though it might refer to a piece of clothing or swollen ankles.
The weltering has begun for the royal baby. Boy or girl?
okay, i hate doing this, bc it is a drag to have to make someone explain their homework, and i look like a dunce for not being able to see the pun, but i called in an expert [mrB] and he doesn’t get it either. Cowman, explain yourself!
i’m going to guess girl.
Ah, but wouldn’t it be hilarious to post an nonsensical pun with no explanation then leave?
So you missed an eventful week, it seems.
Have you tried the Mt Dew Kickstart? I had an orange one on the beach. Not too bad.
Not exactly diet, but it has 5% real juice and 80 calories for the can. 20 g sugar.
A Monster drink has 54 g sugar.
I would guess girl as well. Things can’t go that smoothly for the couple. Two girls, then a boy.
no, i’m but i am familiar with the witches boobs....
Let's not bring Biden and Reid into this
No, I have a wife to do these things. ;-)
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
cheaper than daycare! ; )
I’ve heard the “well digger” part, but it wasn’t ankles that were cold, but somewhere about where the bilateral split occurs in the human body.
Or the PetSmart hotel.
Something about Birdseye pearl onions?
More of a dorsal inclination.
yeah, i’m sure i will hear about how much that bill was since he picked them up! i will tweet the pic that xsbaby sent of them in their suite. bc they were late check-ins last Monday, they got the last available room and it was the one that you can see into from the lobby. jules is far too excitable to be able to handle all the stimuli of one of the cages.
