Posted on 08/22/2013 4:22:19 AM PDT by secret garden
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".
coaptation \koh-ap-TEY-shuhn\, noun
a joining or adjustment of parts to one another: the coaptation of a broken bone.
...though nothing be declared thereby of the structure and coaptation of the spring, wheels, balance, etc. and the manner how they act on one another so as to make the needle point out the true time of day.
-- Aldous Huxley, Complete Essays, Vol. 4, 1936-1938
Harding approved entirely, and it was decided that the two wounds should be dressed without attempting to close them by immediate coaptation.
-- Jules Verne, The Mysterious Island, 1874
Coaptation stems from the Latin word coaptātiō which meant "a precise joining together."
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

WFB's attempt to emulate us ; ) No pushing at the door please!
Rise and shine!
Good morning from CA. It’s early here.
The coaptation of Obamacare into our health care system is not going well.
Every same-sex cohabitation
Ignores the laws of coaptation
He fits her, she fits him
That is nature, not some whim
It’s how God maintains His civilization
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
seems to me you recently admitted to being a woman as well.... LMAO!!!
Too late and politics won’t change it.
100 years of Gramsci and Marcuse doesn’t get overturned by one election.
The Cultural Marxists won.
i know, i have pretty much given up.
LMAO! that was toooo perfect.
Just like with Obamacare. It needs to happen in order for it to unhappen.
It's times like these that we turn to George Costanza:
G: I don't want hope. Hope is killing me. My dream is to become hopeless. When you're hopeless don't care. When you don't care, that indifference makes you attractive.
J:-So hopelessness is the key.
G:-It's my only hope.
so true, so deep.
That would look good over a pool table, too.
A for you.
“Can’t we all just coaptate?”
Is there any hope left for our world? I told my daughter last night that I am so fed up with the daily assaults on morals and decency. I said they hit you with it over and over, tell you that you have to tolerate it, until it becomes commonplace and you’re regarded as a bigot or freak for thinking some things are just wrong. A+ for you, now I’m going to listen to Mandisa again.
So it was a plan to get free surgery. Sad. A+ for you.
Babylon, all around us. A+ for you.
yes, they do show these tiffany style lamps for pool tables, card tables etc. I never would have thought i would go for something like this but it's really speaking to me ; )
that is precisely what is going on and it is just demoralizing and debilitating.
I have individual haning lights in a line, three over the counter, and three over the halfwall.
Hopefully nothing happens to them because like the cobalt tile I used in the Bathroom, at the old house, they stopped making this particular one.
The other one is nicer. Just my opinion.
yes, i said i liked the other one better.
that sounds nice, very HGTVish ; )
I just have to shake my head
Every time I chance to hear
Some space cadet opining
A happy coaptation is near
The lithium-voiced assurances
That all can mend their ways
If we just embrace insanity,
From terrorists to “gays”
I’ve said these delusional ones
Might re-direct their thinking
By setting down both that bong
And the koolaid they’re drinking...
I like the first one, but that is just me.
It should go with your mission style furniture. Is that what your kitchen table is?
like i said, me too. but i do want to go to some lighting places this weekend and see if i can see this stuff in the flesh so to speak. Hard to really tell what it looks like, though i do love how it looks in the pic.
huh, they look the same to me, I would go with the cheaper one. LOL
yes, that’s what i thought too.
the shape of the fixture is slightly different and there is more color in the glass on the first one, the second is just a cream color. Only $20 diff between them.
That is nice looking too, but I like the color for a family kitchen.
It looks pinkish on my monitor. Maybe it’s the lighting. I want to do a warm gold in my DR and a light tan or ecru in my family room because we have the burgundy leather couches in there. Paint is cheaper than new flooring. ;)
well it says on there, orange family. just hoping it’s not SU orange when its up!
even paint makes me nervous though. i don’t know how people do those dark statement colors, like a burgundy or a dark green.
Amen, amen, amen. A+ for you!
I hosted Mom’s 100th birthday celebration with my surviving cousins yesterday. I haven’t seen some of them for 10 years. They all live in various parts of CA, and all came from families with intact marriages. Their kids, however, don’t even want to get married. However, that does not stop them from having babies. Now, these relationships are 4 and 5 years old. How do you live with someone for 5 years, have a baby, and never discuss marriage?
I’m the oldest. Therefore my kids are older than theirs, and they are all in intact, long marriages. But, is this what I’m going to face when my grandchildren are of marriageable age? No marriages?
