A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
The poet Robert Southey once said, "It is with words as with sunbeams, the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn." While he was talking about using fewer words, the same might be said about using fewer letters. That is, using short words.
While days are now getting longer, words are still short, at least for this week. This week we bring you one-syllable words.
noun: 1. A small blister or swelling. 2. A bubble.
Perhaps alteration of blob. Earliest documented use: 1607.
"His worried face shone with moisture; rivulets of sweat slid down his jaw bone. A bleb hung from his chin."
William Boyd; A Good Man in Africa; William Morrow; 1982.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:Nothing so soon the drooping spirits can raise / As praises from the men, whom all men praise. -Abraham Cowley, poet (1618-1667)
