The word of the day is: incorrigible. It means incapable of being corrected, amended, or reformed. It is an adjective. p 377 The Merriam Webster Dictionary.
I think this word describes me at times. I am incapable of being corrected or amended particularly when I know that I am right and you are wrong. But what I have learned to do is not tell you so. I let you tell me: wait for it….YOU WERE RIGHT AND I WAS WRONG! THANK GOD FOR THOSE WORDS!
Not for nothing, when you deal with someone who thinks they know it all, those words are like manna to a starving body. And my body be starving. So what makes people incorrigble– a badge, a phone, a paycheck, a diploma, a wife, a husband or a degree other than a highschool degree? No just the knowledge that I am right and you are wrong. So lets use it in a sentence.
MICHALE HAS ALWAYS BEEN INCORRIGIBLE SINCE SHE WAS A CHILD.
Now lets use it in a paragraph.
MICHALE HAS ALWAYS BEEN INCORRIGIBLE SINCE SHE WAS A CHILD. HER SMILE HAS ALWAYS BEEN PRECOCIOUS AND ALWAYS BEEN A SMART ALEC. BUT WE LEARNED TO LET HER INTELLIGENCE SHINE THROUGH. AND NOW WE HAVE A PULITZER PRIZE WINNER.
I am hoping as I read the novels through and find a word that I think is a different word that most people don’t always use that by using it in Dictionary Day you guys will gain a bigger vocabulary.
