Before anyone says anything, I will admit that our ‘word of the day’ section is less ‘word of the day’ and more ‘word of the many days between the last word of the day and this one’. So sorry, but that’s the way it is. Consider it more exciting… when is the next ‘word of the day’ day going to be? It’s like a mystery novel without the novel! That being said, here we go!
