Thursday Thirteen #9: Thirteen 13-letter words


Here they are: A--M

1. Adventuristic--of course, a blog called Artventuring would have to start off with this one!

2. Believability--something in very short supply in Washington, these days.

3. Caulifloweret--hmmm wonder if there's a broccolifloweret too--will use it if there's ever
a Saturday Sixteen!

4. Draftsmanship--I think there should be draftwomanship, too! (a good Friday Fourteen?)

5. Echolocations--these are why bats don't bump into you at night

6. Featherbrains--see #2

7. Gawkisness--wouldn't want to be afflicted with this on Dancing with the Stars!

8. Hyperromantic--that state we're all in during the first blush of love

9. Impulsiveness--the reason for that $400 pair of shoes you bought!

10. Jollification--the other name for mall Santa training?

11. Kaleidoscopic--the kinds of colors and patterns you see when you're #8

12. Lexicologists--people like me who love words and meanings and usage.

13. Mollycoddling--who's Molly, and why does she need coddling?!

The rest of the alphabet next week.

Happy TT Everyone!

I love words, and some of these are just great. I'm going to try and use jollification several times before the week is out!

Great list! My husband teases me for using "big words" and now I've got a few more for verbal fodder :D

Good morning! I have a "treat" for you over on my blog. Come by and grab it when you can!
Great concept for a T-13. I bet that list took a lot of time.
