Word of the Week: meretricious

Howdy, Word Lovers! Last week’s Word of the Week was sangfroid. According to Merriam-Webster’s Learner’s Dictionary, sangfroid means: the ability to stay calm in difficult or dangerous situations. I seem to panic when the situation is a mere trifle, but generally am rather sangfroid when the danger is real. Perhaps sangfroid is just another word for being in shock???

Today’s word is meretricious and here’s my guess:

meretricious: (mer-ə-ˈtri-shəs) 1. vicious merit 2. a rather run-of-the-mill trick 3. looking delicious in the mirror
