Word of the Day

There is no winner today! No one posted a sentence using deify, so there can be no winner.
Thumbs up to 'Asian Sensation' for his blurb using yesterday's writing prompt 'yo  yo yo':

'Really? Is she back for more? Sigh, I can't believe she told her friends about her New Year's goal. She said that the count down would start today, and it hasn't even been an hour... Poor girl's going to suffer.'
Word of the Day

The word: Foible (foy-bull)

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.

Foible: (definition from thefreedictionary.com)
1. A minor weakness or failing of character.
2. The weaker section of a sword blade, from the middle to the tip.

And now... my sentence! The man had too many foibles for me to take him seriously.

Remember: Post a sentence using the word foible as a comment. We will pick the best sentence and commemorate on this blog forever the person with the best. The winner will be posted tomorrow morning along with the new word of the day.

Happy writing!
