Yesterday's winner for their use of writhe in a sentence:

Listening to my boys fight at the kitchen table makes me writhe in irritation! (really- it does!)

Congratulations, Shelli! (And thanks for posting a sentence!) I think we can all understand!

The word: Deify (D-if-eye)

The challenge: Use five times today. Oh. and post a sentence using it as a comment on this blog.

The reward: Your friends will think you more intelligent and (more importantly) you will feel more intelligent. After all what greater reward is there than internal reward?! And. the best sentence will be posted and commemorated tomorrow morning with the next word of the day.
