As an adult, I discovered that one of the first things that impressed me about people was their vocabulary. The perfect word, used humbly and as if by accident, is the shortest way to my heart. I realized after some thought that this, too, was about my dad. His command of words became my standard of excellence. There weren’t many people who measured up to his standard, and even fewer who exceeded it. (from the memoir I’m working on)
The words in the quiz below are actual words I’ve learned by listening to the daily conversation of Dr. Halloran and Dr. Dickson. Note the term “learned”: I did not know what they meant when I heard them, so if you don’t know them either, join the crowd. Your results will not be posted publicly…unless you’re on the leaderboard!
I will choose one participant to receive a $20 Target gift card. For now, it will be a random drawing, not just the people with a perfect score.
Update, 2/26/15: You are still welcome to take this quiz, but the drawing is complete! See my next blog post for announcement of the random winner.
Press the SUBMIT QUIZ button above to enter the drawing. Since this is my first attempt at a quiz, I am keeping my eyes out for technical glitches. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment if something is not user-friendly.
