Word of the Day
Saturday, March 17, 2007
Contrariety (noun) – The condition of being opposing in character or purpose; a discrepancy (its root is ‘contrary,’ which is from Middle English, Old French, and Latin)

Word in a Sentence: Although Chariss has no Irish blood in her, her overwhelming contrariety after Nigel’s departure for Bellan makes her bad company for the rest of the cast in my novel Choices Meant for Gods.

Your turn! Any Irish contrariness in your mind today? Write a sentence about it to share with the other visitors to The Dragon.

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

Contrariety - this is a trait we are seeing surfacing more and more in my three-year-old granddaughter! And, when she is being her most bull-headed, obnoxious and refusing to do what we say, her response to everything then is generally "All done, all done!" Yep, by that time, we - the adults are usually "all done" too - all done in from dealing with her antics! But I love the little princess anyway!
