EXCRESENCE – Word of The Day, 6 July 2016

excresence  /ˌikˈskresəns/ noun  1. A distinct outgrowth on a human or animal body or on a plant, especially one that is the result of disease or abnormality.  2. An unattractive or superfluous addition or feature. Examples:

1.  The fleshy, knobbly and hairy excresence on little Jimmy’s shoulder grew so large that people at the state fair wanted to put him in a tent and show him off as the Two Headed Boy.

2.  Dan Quayle was considered an unpleasant excresence on the Bush presidency.  Sadly, this excresence couldn’t be burned-off with an electric needle.


 PS: This is our wedding anniversary so we are taking a day trip to Mt. St. Helens.
