Here's a few words I thought I would throw out in hopes of getting ideas on how to use them in future writings. Send me your thoughts; you know like the days of old when you were in school and your teacher had you write your vocabulary words in a complete sentence.

Here are this week's words:

aperitifs
magnanimity
veroten

I asked a friend to send me a couple JPEGs of his sailboat. He sent me aperitifs instead.

We met when I almost rammed their boat while mooring (the operative and important word being: "almost").

We met when I almost rammed their boat while trying to moor (the operative and important word being: 'almost'). They invited me over for aperitifs...just a fancy way of saying 'sun downer drinks in the cockpit'. I was impressed by their magnanimity...after all, I'd almost slammed into their fifty foot sloop and I was pretty sure I was under insured for such an event. We spent the evening discussing sailing tactics, our favourite rum drinks and, as the evening wore on and the rum bottle emptied, the various possible meanings of 'veroten'.

Wow, what a guy! Is this someone you know? A fictional character? Or, an example you created? Thanks for helping me out. :-)

I was amazed at the magnanimity of the schooner's captain. After all, he had been mutineed against, cast afloat in a wine barrel and shot several times. That he didn't even cheer as he watched his former crew hanged for treason was a grand statement. He was indeed "one of the good guys" .
