A to Z Blog Challenge – A

A2Z-BADGE-0002015-LifeisGood-230_zps660c38a0A to Z Blog Challenge – A

Today begins the 2015 A to Z Blog Challenge. http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/  I did the challenge last year, and it was lots of fun. I managed to post an entry every day (except Sundays) for the whole month of April. I did this on both my blogs, and they were all random subjects. Each day of the month you use a letter of the alphabet, writing about something that begins with that letter, from A to Z.

This year I will only do this blog, and I will have a theme. My theme will be called DAFFY DEFINITIONS. Here’s how it will go… I pick out a word I don’t know the definition of, from the dictionary. I will make up a definition for that word, and then write a sentence using that. Then, I will give the correct definition. Sounded like a good idea, to learn some new words, and also have a laugh at the same time.

So, hope you enjoy reading them as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.

LETTER A

Word = Augury

Daffy Definition = A special studio where people come to do their arguing

Sentence = Betty and Tom rented a room at the augury for $250 an hour. Even though they argued and shouted, they settled their differences.

Real Definition = augur/augury…an official diviner from ancient Rome, one held to foretell events by omens, to predict the future, esp. from omens, a divination from omens or portents or from chance events

***

Word = Adumbrate

Daffy Definition = A two-decker cart on wheels, used to bring food to customer’s tables, in a fancy restaurant…a dumbwaiter on wheels

Sentence = Stella had pushed that adumbrate 5,000 miles in the course of her employment at the restaurant.

Real Definition = to foreshadow vaguely, to give a sketchy representation or outline of, to overshadow or obscure

***

Word = Astrakhan

Daffy Definition = An early astronaut from back in the days of Genghis Khan

Sentence = Unearthing artifacts from the Mongolian desert, archeologists found evidence of the first astrakhans.

Real Definition = A cloth made from wool that is of curled and looped pile resembling karakul (a breed of sheep)
