Wednesday Word of the Day

Cicatrix \SIK-uh-triks\, noun:
1. New tissue that forms over a wound.
2. Botany. A scar left by a fallen leaf, seed, etc.

Okay, so this interesting word just showed up in my email and I felt compelled to share.  How to use it in a fun sentence?  Oh, I know...  "Hey baby, nice looking cicatrix you got there."  LOL

Cicatrix is derived from the Latin word cicatrix meaning "scar." The Latin word has no clear origin.

Song of the DayHello Texas by Jimmy Buffet off the Urban Cowboy soundtrack.  Silly note, when I moved to Texas the year I turned eleven, I listened to this song as we crossed over the boarder from Oklahoma.  Funny the things we remember so vividly.  :)

  1. Oh, how neat listening to Hello Texas as you crossed into Texas... one of those 'vivid' life moments, indeed.

    Once again, not a word I've heard before. I wonder if it's related to Cicada, the insect.

  2. Yep, it was a vivid life moment. I still remember being equal parts excited and scared out of my panties about leaving the only place I'd ever known and setting down in a new and foreign land. It ended up being really good for me. :)

  3. So glad it turned out to be a good thing.
