i learned some new words recently. i have a tendency to read the dictionary when i'm bored at somebody else's house. a fillip is a type of flick made by the thumb holding finger and then quickly releasing. i learned that last night. today i learned the word graffito. it's the singular of graffiti. i didn't even know graffiti had a singular form. i like to learn new words. especially if they are fun to say. one i relearned was jalousie. it's a type of window shade. it's made of wooden slats that can be adjusted. sometimes i learn a word, but i have no practical application for it so i forget about it. that's the case with jalousie. when i saw it in the dictionary i remembered seeing it before, but couldn't remember what it meant. anyway, don't be surprised if every once in a while i put a word post up.
