Words of the Day
Since I was in college I have subscribed to the Word of the Day email from Dictionary.com. It’s the one little bright piece of mass marketing email I like to get each morning.
I don’t usually retain the words it tries to impart. Take for example Monday’s word: nixie which means a letter or parcel that is undeliverable by the post office because of a faulty or illegible address.
Yet some days I fall in love with a new word and yesterday was such a day.
Campestral: of or relating to fields or open country.
Yeah, that’s life at Purgatory.
