Words for the Day

Dean Dad, guesting over at Bitch PhD, used the word interlocutor in a recent entry. Interlocutor is one of those words that you kind of know what it means and you act as if you know what it means but you pray that no one asks you the definition when there isn't a dictionary handy.

Dean Dad used a plethora of really big words but this particular word had the most difficulty settling into my brain.

Actually, I had to go to 3 different online dictionaries to find the meaning. I knew the law entered into it somehow but I had to go to the Dictionary of Difficult Words to find it.

interlocutor, n

Someone who takes part in a conversation, often formally or officially. The performer in a minstrel show who is placed midway between the end men and engages in banter with them.

n. (fem. -tress, -trice, -trix) speaker in conversation; interpreter. interlocution, n. conversation; interruption. interlocutory, a.; Law, done during action; intermediate.

Please use this word in a sentence. I'm not convinced that I completely grasp the meaning or the use of this word.

My second word of the day is penis. As in a comment MochaMomma left on my other blog::

I'm very disturbed that my lesbian blog friend said, "I love your penises."

That's all. I just came to tell you I was disturbed.

Hopefully I do not have to define the word penis for you. But I will say that it is her own fault. She's the one who sent me to Dave's place. Hop on over there and look for the April 30 entry. Then scroll down until you find the infamous penis chart.

Here is my reply to Mocha:

Some people live to serve while I live to disturb.

And that's the bottom line. I live to disturb. Try it. There's a lot of fun to be had in disturbing someone's sense of equilibrium. I might even be moved to write another penis post.

I'm thinking I ought to use the word penis more often Sangroncito. It seems to have bumped up my traffic a bit ;^)
