Word of The Day
It's about using words, of course, but, while an occasional favorite or boost happens, there's little engagement.
A two-part Challenge Proposal:
A) Post a toot using the word in any way, sentence, story, analysis, rhyme...
B) Doodlers and Artists, use the word as the subject of a #SketchChallenge
Get in on the fun of words and visual imagination.
Remember to use the #WordOfTheDay hashtag, of course.
Thanks to anyone who decides to follow this account.
I have a habit of responding to all who do so, but this is a second account, and I may mess up when trying to determine who is a new follower and who is "also" following after connecting by way of my mastodon.cloud account.
It is not my intent to litter myself all over the fediverse. I will see how things go. I've made connections with several others on mastodon.art and think I'll feel at home here while NOT restricting my toots to artistic attempts. It looks like the instance won't generally mind.
Words have art in them, too.
Good luck to all of us.
Strength to the fediverse through the efforts of individuals.
1 (of a person) easy to control or influence.
1.1 (of a situation or problem) easy to deal with.
Early 16th century from Latin tractabilis, from tractare ‘to handle’ (see tractate).
I appreciate all the efforts made to make algebra tractable for me. Those efforts were applied too early for me. Time, and mental maturity, was the eventual cure.
'I'm ... not really into all that "mate for life, sexy pheremones" sort of stuff,' they said.
The werewolf blushed. 'No, no! Nothing like that. It's mostly going for runs and having *very* comfortable naps.' She paused. 'You do get an aversion to baths, I guess, but who likes baths anyway?' she shuddered.
'I don't understand. Why me?'
'Well ... it's also about having a pack. A family. And I sort of thought ... you could use one.'
Holding back tears, the human nodded.
1 Security or protection against a loss or other financial burden.
1.1 Security against or exemption from legal liability for one's actions.
1.2 count noun A sum of money paid as compensation, especially one paid by a country defeated in war as a condition of peace.

*A Fine Day*
A rising sun
Portends some fun,
A day of play,
We'll jump and run.
More calm at noon
We'll enjoy a boon
Of picnic lunch
And hum a tune.
Later on, a chance,
We may jointly glance
And then wind up
Hugging in a dance.
Ode to the Bend in the River
pottery and glass
meet you where
Where it's best
to sit in the quiet
of the movement,
to just listen in,
Every ripple of river,
a moment of wonder
which clears its voice,
noun plural noun insinuendos
informal, mainly humorous
another term for insinuation
Late 19th century blend of insinuation and innuendo.
Alec dropped so many lame insinuendos about Mark at the party that, by the end, everyone congratulated Mark for keeping so much of Alec's attention.
The problem with sharing things which are "tongue-in-cheek" is that people don't mind if my tongue is poked in my own cheek, but I've found they are a little reluctant to have my tongue in *their* cheek.
