Word of the Week: tutelary

Dictionary --Word of the Week

As we begin the third month of MIP posts, I humbly thank my readers for helping the blog to pass another milestone:”1000+ views.” While I sincerely hope that God takes this blog where He wants it to go, I did think it was important, back in January, to set some goals for the blog, just to make sure I gave God an actual chance to do what He wanted with it. Translation? I needed goals to keep myself disciplined about this. The 1000 view mark is one I set back on the first week of January and I fully expected it to take a  year to reach. To surpass that at the end of month 2 is proof, to me, that God is most definitely in charge and that I am blessed with the best blog readers. So thank you, again, for “checking in” here and even bigger thanks to those of you who take the time to comment or give feedback to me as you “encounter” me. It means more than I can say.

Now, on to “business.” 😀 Last week’s Word of the Week was traduce. Traduce means to expose to shame or blame by means of falsehood and misrepresentation. I have never, ever done that. *cough, sputter* Let me pause a moment as we wait for lightning to strike my laptop.

Okay, so now that I have a new laptop, let’s work on this week’s word:

tutelary: (ˈtü-tə-ˌler-ē) 1. a geometric corollary about tutes, whatever a tute is. 2. the latest drug not covered by my prescription insurance plan that has just now been prescribed by my doctor 3. a tutor named Larry. 4. what an Irish dyslexic calls “Tipperary.”

What’s your guess? “Points” for humorous guesses. Submit a comment below or send me an email via the Contact page and let’s see who gets the closest! Thanks for “playing.”

Tomorrow’s Post: What did you do for your act of kindness this week?

    Not humorous, but it sounds like the recipient of tutelage!
