Cool Meaning, But Can You Use It In A Sentence?



I love words.  I know, I know, big surprise there, but it's true.  I love them and so when I came across Dictionary.com and their word of the day email, well, I was jazzed.

Imagine it, a new word defined everyday, in my inbox.  Woot!!

So I thought I would share a few interesting ones here.

Okay, so I'm throwing down the gauntlet for my blog mates and readers alike...give me your sexiest, funniest, dirtiest or any -iest you can come up with, sentence using one of the words above.  Here's mine...

Larisa was scandalized, kind of, when Thoren laid her flat, spread her thighs and gormandized her for hours on end.

Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

Can we use them in a sentence? Sure! Can't promise they won't be sill sentenses, but I bet we can do it...

"That bilocation spell totally allowed me to beek by the sea while still attending the friday morning staff meeting!"

Serena Shay said...

Heh, Heh. Good one, Rebecca! I remember many a staff meeting where that bilocation spell would have come in verrrrrrry handy!!

"gormandized her for hours on end." ~ Serena, luv it!
Gormandize must be related to gourmand and gourmet... His lusty gourmet appetite for sex could only be satisfied by her, the one woman who denied him. If only he could find a way to gormandize her once, he was certain her own savage needs would be ignited, or she would become his flambe dessert. Forever.

Rebecca, fab use of bilocation.

She'd been practicing secretly and could now use bilocation to be with both of her lovers, twins who'd had a nasty falling out with each other.
Foudroyant by nature, the older one had impulsively bonked the other with a cast iron pan as he beeked logs near the hearth fire.
She hadn't told them yet, about her psi ability to read them both simultaneously, called the incunabulum power by the secret order she'd belong to since a toddler.
She trembled all too deliciously as she felt their need to split her open like a spatchcock and take her for hours.

Rebecca Murray said...

Nice flash fiction!

spatchcock:
I stared in digust as my "date" did a spatchcock. I wouldn't be eating tonight.

Sorry, best I could do with that one.

The greedy Spatch seized Laruna and flung her into the pile of sleeping furs. His enormous Spatchcock prodded at her groin through the thin shift he forced all his captive women to wear. She wasn't sure how he managed it, but his rigid beak wore a leer.

Reaching under her shift, she seized the knife she'd strapped to her thigh and attacked her attacker -- specifically, his huge member. Within moments the monster spasmed on the floor, pumping out his life's blood.

"It's okay," Laruna told the other captives as she swung back the cell door. "He's been dispatched."

I don't care if that isn't the definition. This is what came to me. Yep, it's gonna be a loooong weekend.

Serena Shay said...

Ohmygosh...ya'll are fabulous! I knew there would be some awesome uses of those words. ;)

Serena Shay said...

Savanna, don't you just love that word...gormandize it sounds sexy just saying it, or maybe that's just me. hehe love the flambe idea, sounds like mister mystery would one hot number to mess with!

Five of the words in one flash!! The Queen for a day crown goes to you, my dear! I'm going to be looking for that paragraph in one of your books!! hehe

Serena Shay said...

Whoa...I'd be weirded out too, Rebecca, if my date was doing something called a spatchcock! Great sentence. :)

Serena Shay said...

LOLOLOLOLOL...Holy cow, Pat, I'm still laughing. I love it. Definition or not, that is a great use of spatchcock! I can see Laruna freeing the captives with a little bit of the Buffy attitute in her..."The dirty bugger won't be using that spatchcock on anyone else. HA!"

Savanna Kougar said...

Pat ~ Laruna, the Spatchcock Slayer

Rebecca Murray said...

Even knowing the meaning of spatchcock, all kinds of gross things popped into my mind mind...

We gormandized a spatchcock while father read from an incunabulum, making us foudroyantly wish we could bilocate.

Ok, that sentence, while techically correct, just brings even more icky things to mind...

Serena Shay said...

LOL, I think it's the bilocate, Rebecca, that brings the ick to mind, but kudos for getting it all in one sentence!! ;)

Savanna Kougar said...

Rebecca... kudos... and it is funny in a weird way.

Translates as "we gorged on grilled chicken as father read from the Old Testament, making us wish we could be anywhere else for diner."

This is kind of fun. I think I need to have a character who uses obscure words to hilarious effect in my next story!

Rebecca, good idea!
