Wacky Word Quiz

Happy Friday! The weekend is almost upon us, so, yay! Today, I’ve brought back the word quiz.


Those who’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know what to do. Well, not that it’s overly complicated. Quite simple really.


Each word will have four possible definitions, of course, only one will be right. You can put your guesses in the ‘Comments’ section, or not, and I’ll be back to reveal (Ta-da!) the correct one.


As before, I’ll ask each of you to practice ‘Googlestraint” (made that one up myself, my Mom is so proud . . . um, I think.) In plain English, please do not ask Google or any other ‘know-it-all’ virtual entity.


Here we go!
