Once again in to the breach, dear friends.
Merriam-Webster Online word of the day:
: to make more violent, bitter, or severe
NY Times word of the day:
pre-empt •\prē-ˈem(p)t\• verb
1. acquire for oneself before others can do so
2. gain possession of by prior right or opportunity, especially so as to obtain the right to buy (land)
3. make a pre-emptive bid in the game of bridge
4. take the place of or have precedence over
WordThink word of the day:
Masticate [mas·ti·cate] v. To chew (as in food). To reduce to pulp by crushing, grinding or kneading.
Today’s dictomancy (random word from the dictionary to divine the future) seems a tad aggressive. Exacerbate, preempt, and masticate. hmmm
“Don’t exacerbate your situation by a preemptive strike. I think you should masticate the facts a little more.”
If those words were today’s horoscope, it might say something like,
Dear Taurus: Today the sun will be shining on 59% of your city. You may want to avoid your ex, get to work early, and don’t let the grind get you down. With a 59% chance, you may find the sun shining on you.
Speaking of getting to work early…
I owe some more words as I did not make it to 100 today. Maybe I’ll post again later.
