Meet Stan the Pilgarlic man ~ Save-A-Word Saturday

The word lovers' and prompt writers' blog hop. Here's how it goes:

1. Create a lovely blog post that links back to The Feather and The Rose blog - our host.

2. Pick an old word you want to save from extinction to feature in your blog post. It really must be an old word, not just a big one. We are trying to save lovely archaisms, not ugly giants (for example, "Dihydrogen Monoxide" is not an acceptable choice). Luciferous Logolepsy is a great database of lovely words if you're having trouble coming up with something on your own.

3. Provide a definition of your word. Use your word in a sentence (or even a short paragraph) vaguely related to the theme we have chosen this week. You may also add visual or musical interpretations of your word or your sentence. In fact, add anything that moves your creative spirit.

4. Add your post to the linky list below (sometimes it's added late). Then hop to as many other blogs as you can in search of as many wonderful words as possible!

5. Use as many of the words as you can on the people in your life. Do leave us a note or add something to your own post to let us all know what wonderful old word you whipped out to befuddle your friends and relations.

Today's theme isLaughter

My word today is: PilgarlicFrom 1520-30
Noun - a person regarded with mild or pretended contempt or pity; a baldheaded man 

And here's my writing for this word:

"Look at him."
"Yeah, I know."
"That's a shame."
"Yeah. Wanna do something about it?"
"What more could be done to that homeless, drunk pilgarlic?"

Stan stood up and stumbled near the two. "I may be homeless, drunk, even pilgarlic. At least I know enough to show pity on those who have less than me, even on two worthless punks like you. Here, take a swig."

Diane and Marvin burst out laughing before walking away, and finished off with, "Good bye, you old geezer!"

  1. This is a wonderful idea for a blog hop! I will join after Easter I think, when I don't have to bake a cake, and do the other cooking! :) Have a great weekend!

    1. That would be great. It is a fun, creative hop.

  2. Interesting word! And what a character!!

  3. Interesting word and like the idea of this bloghop.

  4. Good job utilizing both definitions of the word at once. Makes it like a twofer!

  5. Another nice word choice, Nancy. Although pilgarlic makes me think of those garlic pill supplements. :)

  6. Right noω it sounds like Movable Tyρe is
