Balderdash (31)

is a weekly meme hosted by Ryan at Wordsmithonia.

This is very easy to do!
If you comment on blogs you can do this too.
Write down all the word verifictions you get while posting comments on other peoples blogs.
You then play Balderdash with them.

In case you don't know how to play:
You take the made up word and come up with an authentic sounding definition for it.
Do this for a week and then post your best or favorite ones every Thursday.

Here are mine for this week:

sloodeg - the sloopy and hardwork of getting through the thick mud in woods.

bompygr - a five inch size balled fruit, a dark purple color to the skin, and grows in the depths of the jungle, they are very juicy from all the water the tree takes in, and sweet tasting.

misairp - the use of air and steamed air to fuel equipment to work.

fluviti - the vitamin used when feeling a flu starting which will lighten the symptoms and help you to sleep to work through the worst parts of the cold to let your body recuperate.

My son has picked a few word this week as well:
(I do have to say I am impressed. He had no idea what words I picked or the definitions I created.)

hydom - its the mixture of helium and carbon-dioxide that cause you to die if you just touch it but is also used to power special kinds of boats.

demenoon - a mix between a demon and a vampire.


  1. Another great week of words! I especially like fluviti, as I could have used that this winter!

    Please tell your son that I'm impressed with his definitions! Demenoon is my favorite. Great job!

  2. Alexia - fluviti could come in handy with the flu season. I will definitely let him know you enjoyed his words. He seems to enjoy doing these definitions every week with me. Thank you for taking the time to mention my son's words. He will be glad to hear it. :)

  3. Nicely done. I'll have to add a couple of these into my vocabulary. lol

    Great job - very creative!

  4. Great words, Melissa! And you son's too :-)

    I coulda used that fluviti a couple of weeks ago, lol.

  5. Jessica - Glad to have you stop by. Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed the words.

    Jackie - Thank you! My son seems to enjoy being creative with these too. :) I would love to have fluviti in my cabinet here for when we get sick. :) Glad you enjoyed the words.

  6. Absolutely fantastic wordsthis week, I'm being a bad meme host and I promise I'll be better in the future.

  7. La Coccinelle - Hi! Fluviti would be great to keep in the cabinet for future uses. :) Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks Ryan! Glad you loved the words. :) I wouldn't say your a bad meme host at all! Things happen in life. Hope all is going well.

  8. I'm with Alexia!! Could use that during flu season!=)

    I am always blown away at your definitions because it really does sound like it could be. Perhaps a job with Merriam Webster?

  9. LOL!! At least you are making use of the verification words. hehehehe, I dont like word verification... some of them are way of the wall.

    Case in point...

    That's the one I see right now;)

  10. Chasity - Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoy the words. I may have to put an application in with Merriam Webster. :) Some of the letter groupings word verification comes up with are just way out there, like the one you got. I don't think I could do anything for that word. :)


Sorry, got 106 spam comments in less than 24hrs. Had to turn on again.

I love comments! Please share your thoughts. I will respond here in the comments back to you.

I'll try again without word verification, but if Spammers get out of hand again I'll turn it back on.

Thank you for visiting!
