Happy Wednesday! Here are this week’s words:
penitent (n.) a person who repents of sin/wrongdoings
abominable (adj.) causing moral revulsion; very unpleasant
equable (adj.) not easily disturbed; calm and even-tempered
depredation (n.) attack or robbery
auscultation (n.) listening to the heart, lungs, or other organs via stethoscope or other instruments
- Even villains can be redeemed if they are true penitents and make amends for their actions.
- Why is the yeti called the abominable snowman? Does it eat people? Is it not a penitent? Or is it simply such a sad, hairy excuse for a snowman that people are actually offended?
- Georgina was more equable than her brother; she watched the thunderstorm from the window, fascinated, while he hid under the kitchen table and clutched his Care Bear.
- Depredation had not been an issue since Nana took up jiu jitsu.
- Could music be composed using only sounds detected via auscultation? I sense a new Bjork album…
