Maiden Word Of The Day Post

Oh my word. Melanie has pulled the rabbit out of the hat for her first outing as host for this prompt.
Check it all out here

And our word is………….“grandiloquent”

I’m glad she gave us the definition:

gran·dil·o·quent

adjective

pompous or extravagant in language, style, or manner, especially in a way that is intended to impress.

“a grandiloquent celebration of Spanish glory”
pompous~
bombastic
magniloquent
pretentious
ostentatious

What can I say? Our government is full of grandiloquent politicians, spouting their own self importance, making the rules for everyone then not playing by them themselves, patting each other on the back, bum chums united, and money is more important than peoples lives.
Sound familiar?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
