Tuesday Word Bytes; Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm!

I LOVE words!  I think language is the best part of being a human.  There's nothing as good as taking a new word and rolling it around the inside of my mouth and feeling how it tastes.

Todays word;
Fleshment: (flesh-munt)

Originally an English word associated with tempting hunting animals, like dogs and hawks, with fresh meat to entice them to hunt successfully.

The later meaning is;
The excitement that accompanies success at a first attempt.

And isn't that the definition of what we affectionately call

 "The One Hit Wonder?"

Connie Francis sings "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb"
(the year I was born)

Moms Mabley sings Abraham, Martin and John
(Remember Moms Mabley?)

Jud Strunk sings A Daisy A Day
( One of my all time favorites!)

What's your favorite word this week?

I've never heard that word before! I do love me words and can't skip over them. I must look them up and learn their meanings! I think language is fascinating.

That's an interesting word with which I was not familiar. Let's see...how about ineffable as my word/adjective of the day.
