Since I know that, through the course of our relationship, you’ve come to care deeply about the state of my nasal passages, I’m very excited to share the following news with you:
I’m now on antibiotics.
Normally, I don’t get that excited about prescription medication, but let’s face it – things were getting a little gross. I know you all love me, but there’s only so much discussion of my congestion levels that you should be reasonably expected to take.
And so, today’s glorious word is perspicuousness: the state or characteristic of clarity.
One more time:
How does this relate to yesterday’s mention of my competitive spirit, you ask? Well, I looked through our previous Wordful Wednesdays together, and found out that today’s word, at four syllables and 14 letters, wins the long distance event!
Our inaugural word, “defenestration” is also 14 letters, but “perspicuousness” wins extra points for style by landing a double p and
triple quadruple s combo.
Tomorrow we’ll take a break from this stellar Olympic coverage with a brand new edition of “My Favourite Television Show You’ve Never Heard Of”. In the meantime, be sure to participate in round two of our own Olympic games, before the medal ceremony on Friday!
