A Nerdy Post of Epic Proportions

Want to know about Mr. vs Mrs. vs Ms.?  Hello Nerdy McNerderson!

Why do these articles provide endless fascination?  And hours of amusement?

‘By the early 17th century, Mr., Mrs. Ms. and Miss became part of English vernacular, creating an awkward socio-linguistic discrepancy. In an attempt to avoid the use of “mistress,” a variety of phonetic substitutes have been utilized, including “missus” or “missis.”’

I waste almost as many hours on my Merriam Webster Dictionary’s word of the day emails.  Favorite word in the past week?  Pomaceous (adj. of or relating to apples, resembling a pome.)

How is this word personally going to showcase itself my life?  Don’t be surprised if you hear “hot damn that tush is pomaceous” coming out of my mouth in the not so distant future.  Sign up for your own word of the day email here.

Twirly

verb
1. To move or spin around rapidly, suddenly, or repeatedly
2. To whirl or turn suddenly

noun
1. The act of twirling or the condition of being twirled; a quick spinning or twisting.
2. Something twirled; a twist

I prefer to use it as an adjective.  Por ejemplo:

I’m so twirly today
This music is deliciously twirly
