Words alone

Absinth
Barbarous
Catatonic (Calliope)
Dirigible (Dilapidated)
Elliptic (Elucidate)
Fecundity
Grotesque (Gianormous)
Hiatus
Ileum (Innocuous)
Jaunt
Keep (Krill)
Latent (Latch)
Moribund (Masticated)
Noxious
Obstinate (Oboe)
Prolific
Quartile (Quadrallelogram)
Rubidium (Roto-toaster)
Syncopated (Startle)
Tepid
Undulating
Viscosity
Whittle
X
Yellow (Yeoman)
Zenith (Zero)



A not so random list of words that I thoroughly enjoy. If there is an extra word it just didnt quite make the cut. These are words that win you mad points if you use them in a sentence when I am present (with extra props being given for prolific and fecundity which are quiet possibly my favorite words to date). And yes the X is meant to stand alone.

Catatonic (Calliope)

These are the ones I choose to use not lose. But they're in twos. Good idea. Whose?

If I ever meet you (again) I will work them into the conversation. I am going to attempt my extra points by nonchalantly slipping in slippy as we speak.

You must also choose up a suitable quiver of vocabulary to bring for the occasion. I am crusty and not prone to being impressed on the first salvo, so do your preparation.

I would think you are/are beginning to head into a fine New England autumn. Enjoy the colors.

Quick wit from the begining. I like. We are headed into autumn at break neck speed and it doesnt make me all that happy but I am coping. And yes when we chance to meet again I will be as profound as possible. -Jn
