SWEETGIRL by Travis Mulhauser had a couple new to me words.
1. perspicuity – “He closed his eyes and when he fired the load it was not an instrument of justice or redemption, was not an act of self-hatred or of martyrdom, but was only the truth expelled through a smooth-bore barrel, all buckshot and perspicuity.”
Perspicuity means clearness or lucidity.
2. corn snow – “There were a few cars scattered in the parking lot and the wind blew and tossed around some corn snow while Starr dug the smokes out of her bag.”
I’ve never lived anywhere that gets much snow so I’m not surprised I didn’t know this term. Corn snow is snow with a rough granular surface resulting from alternate thawing and freezing.
What words do you want to celebrate today?
