Word of the Day
Wednesday, May 30, 2007
Bakerson (proper noun) — In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, this is the surname of Henry, Nigel's childhood friend, the sailor who shows up during the summer festival in the employ of Lord Jamieson (evil sorcerer) Drake (oops) and has a penchant for taking a long time to get to the point in any story he's telling

Etymology: Bakerson is one of those last names that suggests its family's former employment; Henry's ancestors were bakers. In fact, Henry is the one who sold the bread shop and switched professions, much to the surprise of the citizens of Arcana City.

Word in a Sentence (from the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, page 156, Nigel is speaking): "Henry Bakerson. Well, I never thought I'd set eyes on you again. When did you return to Arcana?"

Your turn! Can you think of a sentence in which Mr. Bakerson is a long-winded storyteller, or do you think you've got a baker's son's sentence in you today? Easy as pie!

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
