Word of the Day …

Posted by ccasc on March 25, 2009

It is already Wednesday, folks! The weekend is almost here, but more importantly, tomorrow is LINGO BINGO!!!
Come by the Academic Skills Center in the basement of Edens Library from 2:00 – 2:45 p.m. for fun and prizes!

Well, today’s Word of the Day is demure.

Demure adjective. characterized by shyness and modesty; reserved.

Here’s a sample sentence:
“Truth is a demure lady, much too ladylike to knock you on your head and drag you to her cave. She is there, but
people must want her, and seek her out.”

~ William F. Buckley, Jr.

Enjoy!

~ Lauren Bach
