Word For The Day, Monday, 5/19/14

;


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".

connubial; adj.

of marriage or wedlock; matrimonial; conjugal: connubial love.

Etymology: 1650–60; < Medieval Latin connūbiālis, Latin cōnūbiālis, equivalent to cōnūbi ( um ) ( cō- co- + nūb ( āre ) to marry + -ium -ium) + -ālis -al1

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....

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Connubiality with same sex partners is contrary to the Catholic church's teaching, why would you think you should be permitted to teach in a Catholic school if you do not embrace that teaching.

No pushing at the door please!

We are having a bridal shower today for NEOCAVEMAN, who will be entering a state of connubial bliss this coming saturday. All are welcome to bring "gifs", jpegs, advice, or best wishes and enjoy refreshments. There will be games played later, during recess ; ) Oh and perhaps i should add, he's marrying a wonderful WOMAN, no same sex marriage for our neo!

JERRY: I had a very interesting lunch with George Costanza today.

KRAMER: Really?

JERRY: We were talking about our lives and we both kind of realized we’re kids. We’re not men.

KRAMER: So, then you asked yourselves, “Isn’t there something more to life?”

JERRY: Yes. We did.

KRAMER: Yeah, well, let me clue you in on something. There isn’t.

JERRY: There isn’t?

KRAMER: Absolutely not. I mean, what are you thinking about, Jerry? Marriage? Family?

JERRY: Well...

KRAMER: They’re prisons. Man made prisons. You’re doing time. You get up in the morning. She’s there. You go to sleep at night. She’s there. It’s like you gotta ask permission to use the bathroom. Is it all right if I use the bathroom now?

JERRY: Really?

KRAMER: Yeah, and you can forget about watching TV while you’re eating.

JERRY: I can?

KRAMER: Oh, yeah. You know why? Because it’s dinner time. And you know what you do at dinner?

JERRY: What?

KRAMER: You talk about your day. How was your day today? Did you have a good day today or a bad day today? Well, what kind of day was it? Well, I don’t know. How about you? How was your day?

Naturally, if the bride and groom are both virgins, they would be entering into connewbial bliss.

Gay lovers demand rights, connubial
Opponents get flooded, alluvial
“Homophobic! It’s libel”
To quote from the bible
Proponents are “antediluvial”

My wife has a male cousin who is in his 60s, and of the gay persuasion. He and his "partner," along with my wife and adult son, were passengers in my car the other day as we went here for lunch. When we pulled up in front of the restaurant, my son said to the gay couple, "Don't get excited, guys. The first letter is an "L," not a "C."

I wish I could share some pics I saw recently. The groomsmen all had on hot pink ties to match the bridesmaids and hot pink socks. They all posed in a line with their trousers pulled up and the ties showing. Very cute pic.

aw thank you for that! am dieting for OUR wedding in Sept so won't be eating any of the sweets!

this is definitely the marrying time of year. We learned of two engagements over the weekend. One of xsteen's bestfriends/bridesmaids got engaged on Friday and another family friend got engaged as well. After a dearth of weddings in our lives for decades, i think we are heading into the season of the wedding now.

Yeah, Glen is very ginzo Italian, he’s certainly a grandma’s boy! Good kid though, despite that shifty looking smile.

Tyler and Abbie, the one in blue, have been dating since 5th grade. A lot of people remarked that tyler is finally taller than Abbie! For years, she was much taller than him.

I think they were more excited about the artisanal sausages. As Craigy Ferg would say, is that code?
