Words of the Week for May 26th, 2019
Diane’s word for the week is bonzer, which means, according to Merriam-Webster, “first-rate, excellent.” While this has been a new favorite word of Diane’s for a while, she finally feels she has a reason to call it her word for the week: visiting Austin. She’s wanted to visit the city for years, and it didn’t disappoint.
This trip hasn’t gone exactly to plan, but the city vibe and local shops are all bonzer nonetheless!
Jasmine’s word for the week is gorgonize, which means, according to Merriam-Webster, “to have a paralyzing or mesmerizing effect on.” She still tends to freeze whenever she spots Steve, turning her into a floor gargoyle rather than a tower gargoyle. This will likely dissipate as the two become more familiar with each other.
It’s really weird to be the one gorgonized. Now I know why people don’t like it when I’m the one doing it.
Steve’s word for the week is vagarious, which means, according to English Oxford Living Dictionary, “erratic and unpredictable in behavior or direction.” Since visiting Austin is the first time he’s needed a cat sitter at his new home, his behavior has apparently been a little strange – according to the cat sitter, at least. He will likely return to his usual, more predictable, vigor once schedules are back in place.
I wouldn’t say I’m being vagarious – I simply just don’t know what’s going on right now and it’s making me extremely antsy and not know where I’m going or what I want to do.
