Wednesday's Word of the Week

I like fun words.  I love learning new words or rediscovering old ones to use in my vocabulary.  So every Wednesday I will be posting a new word of the week, along with its definition.  I challenge you to use it in conversation throughout the week so that it can sink into your normal rhetoric.  It might be cool to involve the kids as well!  Also, if you would like to submit a word you can email me at mail@housewifetheologian.com and if I decide to post it, I will give you the credit.  Why don’t you have a crack at using our word in a sentence in the comment section…could be interesting (just make sure it doesn’t personally attack anyone).

This week’s word is:

Flummery-  meaningless or deceptive language; humbug.  (It’s also some kind of weird, scary-sounding pudding…)

**I pulled this definition off of www.thefreedictionary.com/flummery .  Look it up and click the megaphone if you want to crack up laughing at the guy who gives the pronunciation.
