Another word I’ve never heard before, “dudgeon,” was tossed out among today’s one-word prompts. Not “dungeon,” not “dud,” or “dude.” Not even “dungarees.”
What does it mean? I went straight to Google, the search engine I utilize to look up words I’ve never heard of. Google told me that it means a feeling of offense or deep resentment. Yep, that’s how I feel when someone uses a word no one has ever heard of or uses in everyday language. I throw down the yellow flag and call interference on using such words. It’s an unsavory act to use such words.
So I’m proposing a revolutionary concept to all of my fellow one word promoters. It’s, of course, an unenforceable cease and desist order, but instead a plea to stop giving us words that cause feelings of offense or resentment. Doing so is a very dudgeonous thing to perpetuate upon your fellow bloggers.
Written in all good humor for these daily prompts: Ragtag Daily Prompt (dudgeon), The Daily Spur (straight), Your Daily Word Prompt (utilize), Fandango’s One Word Challenge (interference), My Vivid Blog (savory), and Word of the Day Challenge (revolution).
