Just before the holiday let's stretch our brains a little by doing a vocabulary drill. How many of the following words can you define? (1) Excommunicated, (2) Protestants, (3) Fanatic, (4) Cauterize (5) Donkey, (6) Icing, (7) Understudy, (8) Current, (9) Paradise, (10) Store Detective, (11) Cannibal, (12) Infantry. How are you doing? Let's make it a little easier. I'll list the acceptable definitions and all you need to do is match the word with the definition. That shouldn't be too hard. But make sure you pronounce each word very carefully and take your time. Here are the definitions. (a) A newly planted sapling; (b) Counter spy; (c) The fee charged by Rent-A-Mutt, (d) What I do when I shower, (e) Make eye contact with her, (f) Worker ants out to overthrow the Queen, (g) A guy who goes into a restaurant and orders the waiter, (h) What you shoot craps with, (i) Prepare inadequately for the exam, (j) Object that unlocks door to Godfather's home, (k) To cool off the extreme upper portion of the house, (l) Received a phone call from a former spouse. There you are, how did you do? Just in case you had trouble, here are the answers: 1 – l, 2 – f, 3 – k, 4 – e, 5 – j, 6 – d, 7 – I, 8 – c, 9 – h, 10 – b, 11 – g, 12 – a. My favorite? Icing. That's enough for a holiday weekend. Have a great time and be careful.
