Word of the Day
Sunday, March 25, 2007
Conspicuous (adjective) – Easy to notice; obvious; attracting attention because something (or someone) is unusual or remarkable (from Latin conspicere, meaning to look at closely or observe)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Chariss thinks people remember her because of the conspicuous amethyst on her cheek bone, high up near the corner of her right eye, but Nigel Taiman would correct her and explain that she’s remembered wherever she goes because she’s the most beautiful, fair creature in all of Onweald. (Of course, Nigel is biased…)

Your turn! Any obvious sentences come to mind?

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

Isn't it funny though how little kids, when they are getting into something new or that they know is "off limits" how quiet they get then, thinking they'll get away with their adventure and yet, it is that sudden splash of quiet that makes them and their actions all that much more conspicuous to us in the end!
