I’ve just started a new practice in which I draw three vocab words at random each day (working from a list of 135 gleaned from short stories) and attempt to use them in a sentence.
Here are today’s three, fresh from the jar:
expedient: (as a noun) a means to an end
fatuity: absurdity; an outrageous folly; foolishness
delirium tremens: a psychotic condition often seen in chronic alcoholics, involving tremors, hallucinations, anxiety, and disorientation. From alcohol withdrawal.
1. The treasure of Monte Cristo helped Edmund Dantès gain status and power and was an expedient in his revenge against those who had him imprisoned.
2. Perhaps the only greater fatuity than a friendly gasoline fight is pronouncing “eulogy” as “eu-google-y”. (+10 points if you get this reference.)
Okay– I KNOW there are better sentences out there (I mean, come on. I referenced Zoolander and beer). So feel free to play and show us how it’s done!
