Word For The Day, Day, 7/8/14
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".
1. friendly; agreeable: a convivial atmosphere.
2. fond of feasting, drinking, and merry company; jovial.
3. of or befitting a feast; festive.
Etymology: 166070; < Late Latin convīviālis festal, equivalent to Latin convīvi ( um ) feast ( convīv ( ere ) to live together, dine together ( con- con- + vīvere to live) + -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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
There is an utter lack of reason to be convivial these days.
No pushing at the door please!
Despite the gloom of current events, the classroom will be a convivial one today because my baby is celebrating her 20th bday. 20 years ago today, I laid in a birthing room with the OJ preliminary hearing going on on tv; the knife was in the envelope being bandied about.
My kids are going up to a family reunion for the family on their moms side. I’m sure some of it will be fun, but overall, a less than convivial atmosphere. So glad I don’t do that crap with them anymore.
It’s in a campground, few of them can afford a hotel.
happy birthday xsbrownie!
Obama tries acting convivial
With speeches on subjects so trivial
Women’s right to free pills
After sexual thrills
Immigration? He’s steadfastly “oblivial”
"Mission accomplished. Waygu, rials, pesos and new voters for us.
"Swine fever, tuberculosis, and forced quartering for them."
A+++ good riddance to bad rubbish as the saying goes ; )
thanks! I will be serving cake shortly ; )
excellent! A++++ Oreilly, et al. are just incredulous at the daily goings on, and his obliviousness.
Happy Birthday! (And to the former teen as well).
Ugh. Need coffee to be more convivial.
Then again, if the illegal aliens keep coming in sick with TB, scabies, and pneumonia, syphilis, and lice, we will perpetually have conviral-infestations in our southern jails.
Which is why, of course, Obama wants them released from jail as soon as possible.
I have no teens left! that is mindboggling to me.
tammy bruce has been tweeting a pic of scabies, the tweet reads— is Obama’s new slogan “hope, change and scabies”? A+++
Many Years to you, and to your 20-year-old daughter!!!!
How’s’ that for you—a convivial post from Honorary Serb, rather than the usual!!!!
Growing older is a trivial accomplishment. The challenge for us now will be to figure out how to grow younger.
I am SHOCKED at the Honorary Serb’s conviviality!! ; ) thanks! A+++
Well, not growing older while growing younger without growing wider at least.
(But my high school blue jeans still fit as painting pants at least. Worn out a bit of course, but St Ronnie has made me replace my old shirts over the years though as the collars wear through.)
