Word For The Day, Thursday, Rocktober 24, 2013 mien
dictionaries ad nauseam | 24 October 2013 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 10/24/2013 4:36:15 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".

mien (meen) noun
Appearance, bearing, or demeanor.

Example sentence:
"Everyone Nanako Coates greets walks away smiling. But beyond that exuberant, youthful mien is a seasoned veteran with years of professional experience in the restaurant business."
--Eizo Kobayashi; Daughter Follows in Family's Culinary Tradition; Oakland Tribune (California); Sep 17, 2013.

Etymology:
Probably a shortened form of demean (to conduct oneself in a specified manner), influenced by French mine (appearance). Earliest documented use: 1522.

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....

The President’s confident mien
Belies what the people have seen
Obamacare sucks
So he weaves and he ducks
And pretends that he’s still Mr. Clean

They're trying the "let's call it ACA instead of linking it to our leader" tack now. A+ for you.

I hate when that happens. You need a cat door. I can’t figure out how to install one here because the house is brick and all of the doors have storm doors on them.
