Word For The Day, Tuesday July 22, 2014
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".
[157585; < Latin cunctātiōn- (stem of cunctātiō ) delay, equivalent to cunctāt ( us ) (past participle of cunctārī to delay) + -iōn- -ion]
la pesadilla [pehs-ah-DEE-yah ]
El tráfico de las 5:00 es habitualmente una pesadilla.
The traffic at 5:00 is usually a nightmare.
That didn’t take long.
My boss would like to know why I am so often late.
I’m wondering why I bother showing up at all.
We notice you’ve been missing a lot of work recently.
Well, I wouldn’t say I’ve been *missing* it.
My job puts the oxymoron into “gainful employment”.
I wouldn’t say Obama has been guilty of cunctation regarding the situation in the Middle East, but he certainly has been pussyfooting around.
The regular cunctation in producing evidence for government trials borders on criminal negligence. If we’re supposed to cough up 7 years of financial data on demand, they should be able to produce emails from a year ago.
I had a spider bite up near my eyebrow since last week, that wound has healed but now my actual eyeball hurts [the one nearest the bite] and it’s red, so I have an eye dr apt at 11 am. I thought it was a zit and squeezed the living hell out of it and probably released the venom into my blood stream. I had visions of the thing laying eggs in there too, so yeah, i’m grossing myself out with this and need medical attention, before I go out of town.
Try to look on the positive side. At least your strength and agility have been boosted. Now if you can figure out how to cast a strand of webbing ...
and let me add that I hope that my cunctation in seeking medical assistance for this issue doesn’t cause me a problem
Spiderman had some mad skills, so this might not be all bad.
I’m predicting that the first time you see the President in press conference, your spider-sense is gonna freak you out.
Eww and good luck.
I’ve got to see this spreadsheet. Did he do statistics? Make a pareto of the top excuses?
That article is worthless without pie charts
I was walking into a meeting yesterday and had my hands full. My phone starts ringing (Metallica “For Whom the Bell Tolls”) as I am walking in.
The manager running the meeting says to me “that’s a hell of an entrance.” It was like I had walk-on music at a ballgame or on a talk show.
