Word Nerd Day

Today, January 9th (Sunday) is a day to celebrate word-nerdiness.    

Word to the wise: if you see some apparently verbose and pretentious use of English in Op Eds today,  pause before beclowning yourself with a snarky comment. The author might be celebrating word nerd day.. as am I.

The Weather Channel celebrated strange and powerful words for wind, this morning: Haboob, and Derecho.

My new word of the day is anosmia, ( loss of sense of smell).

Someone I know tells me that she has lost her sense of taste and smell since getting her 3 Pfizer jabs. (The jabs, not the virus). Dining is reduced to routine mastication, which might be helpful if one wishes to lose weight.

Apologies for brevity. 

All the best,
