Weird words abound and I really liked these that landed in my mailbox recently. Somehow they fit with my thinking these days!
* fugacious (fyoo-GAY-shuhs), adjective: Lasting a very short time.
Love can be fugacious or forever.
* philter (FIL-tur), noun: (1) A potion or charm supposed to cause the person taking it to fall in love. (2) A potion or charm believed to have magic power. (3) To enchant or bewitch with or as if with a magic potion or charm.
It could take a long time to find the the right philter if one wants it to last forever.
* nugacity (noo-GAS-i-tee), noun: triviality; futility.
I am amazed at the unadulterated nugacity of some of the allegations made by both candidates during this presidential campaign.
* atrabilious (at-ruh-BIL-yuhs), adjective: 1. Gloomy. 2. Ill-tempered.
I gave up dating because I'm tired of atrabilious old men.
Aren't these fun? And they aren't too hard to work into conversation. However, some people might look at you as if you're nuts! I know . . . I know . . . I am! LOL
