Hi. Good morning. Hello. I’m sorry about that; but I’ve been keeping this word to myself for days now, and I just couldn’t hold it in any longer.
Is that not the most wonderful and glorious word you’ve ever heard in your life ?!?
The goal around here, at least on Wednesdays, is to sound kind of sort of smart; or entertaining at the very least, so that if nothing else you’re smiling while listening to me trip over my tongue and some newly discovered syllables. I’m usually able to link the word back to something that’s happening in my day to day life, or, if I’m lucky, to get a really good story about a boy out of the whole thing.
There’s none of that here for you today, my friends. I just found this word in the pages of “Longbourn” (I know, I know, I’ll have to stop talking about it eventually) and haven’t been able to stop saying it since.
Tatterdemalion: ragged or tattered; ragamuffin.
In other words …
Nope. Still nothing. My brain has turned tatterdemalion with excitement and I can’t come up with a single good sentence for this one.
So I’m turning the show over to you! Use tatterdemalion in a sentence today, oh articulate readers of mine, and tell me what you said in the Comments! I promise I will read each and every single one! Out loud !!!
