In 2013 I wrote the following little comment on Sue's News:
Mona Lisa wrote to tell me that I suffer from ADJECTIVITUS. CLICK HERE to see the article by Richard Nordquist.
I do admit I love a good adjective! My brother Norman chastises my overuse of the word "egregious"; I answered, "But it is so succinct!"
It is now August, 2016 and Mona Lisa challenged me recently to post on Facebook A WORD FOR THE DAY to describe one of the candidates for President. Here is my list thus far:
DENIGRATORY NEFARIOUS INIQUITOUS EXECRABLE
VITUPERATIVE REPREHENSIBLE BALEFUL KNAVISH
DISSIMULATOR PERFIDIOUS OPPROBRIOUS MALEFICENT
CONTUMACIOUS SCURRILOUS CHURLISH UNCOUTH
I must report that these daily postings have been the most well-received ("LIKED") of any of my previous Facebook postings. Mona Lisa asked recently, "Will you have enough for 80 more days?"
I do love a good challenge!
My brother said, "I'm more from the Hemingway school. Why don't you just say he's a LIAR and get it over with?"
