Definition Meme

I thought I was immune to the most recent rash of memes, but leave it to my best-online-friend, No Cool Story to include me in the fun! She supplied me with the following words and I was to supply the definitions. Here you go!

soubrette- a delicious chilled French dessert that is typically only eaten during the celebration of Bastille Day (July 14th).

Saponaceous- Relating to the release of frog eggs as in, "the saponaceous fluid surrounds and protects the eggs the first six hours after release".

palimpsest- a common abrasion found on the tongue due to eating way too much candy, more specifically, way too many candy corns.

Xowyg- I have no clue what this real or made up word means. I am hoping it's real because I'm going to use it the next time I clean Guapo's clock at Scrabble.

(This is NOT Guapo, but it is how he feels when we are playing Scrabble!)

Does anyone else want to play? Let me know in the comments and I'll give you some words.

I'm posting my thing tomorrow - you did a good job! I love the stressed-out Scrabble guy! :)

Saponaceous- AAAAAAHHHHH! so scary!

You should totally use Xowyg when you play with Guapo, speacially if he's going to look like the guy in the picture.

You are a good meme player BOFF :D

PS. I will eat soubrette if it really looks like that.

JD said...

Candy corns- That is funny stuff.
I love scrabble. Give me some words baby!

No Cool Story said...

BTW, 'Xowyg' was my made-up word. SHHHH! don't let Guapo know.

Now I want some candy corns, yum.

PS. You don't want to know what my WV was very naughty!

Great meme! I think I defintely have palimpsest.

I'll play along! Give me some words!

Gabriela said...

ok Handiemom and JD: here are your words (and they are all real)


BOFF: what the heck is your WV? I'm lost.

And to all: I should set the record straigh, I don't always clean Guapo's clock. He wins *sometimes*
