Word of the Day
Charade
(noun) — an empty act; a deceptive act (from French "to chatter")

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, Chariss is such a cynic when it comes to love that she assumes her past suitors were all putting on a false charade when they professed their love and devotion for her. "I've never let any of my 'gentlemen callers,' as Hrazon names them, get past their first flower little speech with their flowery little poetry before I stop the whole charade." — page 209, Choices Meant for Gods

Your turn! What creative sentences can you use today's vocabulary word in to help us get it stuck in our minds? The comment field awaits…

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