I’d say “My work here is done,” but it isn’t. Cause revisions.

Words of the Week 2/5/2014 – GIF Quiz Edition!

All right. This week’s draw of words from the jar lends itself quite nicely to ridiculous GIFs, so now we’re going to have some fun.

The words:

conciliatory adj. intended to pacify

keep something on the QT v. QT being “quiet.” I have always heard this as “keep something on the DL,” with DL being “down low.” Both seem to mean the same thing: keeping something discreet.

epicurean adj. having luxurious taste/excessive indulgence, especially in food and drink

haute couture n. French, directly translating as “high seam”; means high fashion

histrionic adj. overly theatrical/dramatic

Ready?

QUIZ TIME!
