Word of the Day
Saturday, February 3, 2007
Squamous (adjective) – Scaly, covered with scales, formed with scales (from Latin squama)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, the evil sorceress Julette takes on a squamous nature when she metamorphoses into her dragon form to eat her enemies.

Your turn! How can you use this odd word in a sentence? I know, I’m putting a burden on the ol’ grey matter on a weekend! I apologize!

“Some days, you just want the dragon to win.”

Oooh! Jeni! Please read this as if I were speaking with the voice of Dori from Finding Nemo: "The Little Mermaid! I've always wanted to watch that movie."

Sebastian was the best!


And, Michelle, Darling, I'm so very offended that I haven't gotten to read the second novel yet...
