Today is National Dictionary Day. Heck, yes.

I love words. Words are the items that comprise life's most salient means of existing, of living, of experiencing and gleaning.

And today is National Dictionary Day. Today, or perhaps this week, challenge yourself to learn a new word. It's fun. I promise.

The word that I learned today is "mucro."

Mucro \ MYOO-kroh \ noun 1. A short point projecting abruptly, as at the end of a leaf.

Mucro. Mucro. Mucro. I like it. Now, to start using it in day-to-day language. See? Fun! Useful! Important!

Happy National Dictionary Day, folks.

I'm so in love with words I eat them. Which is a sick and twisted way to express love, I realize.
