of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
Do you or anyone you know cry easily. Sad movies? Sad songs? Cloudy skies? Empty water glass? No chocolate in the house? Cat won't come sit on your lap?
If so, lachrymose (lack-rih-mose) is the perfect word to describe you or them.
"Mother, father, my goldfish died and I am feeling a bit lachrymose. I'd like to go to my room now and cry. Would that be acceptable?"
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
