Another twofer, today.  I had to dig out the big guns:  my Balderdash game cards.

All Balderdash aside, I think these are two good words that you might really be able to work into a conversation when you wish to empty a room.  

coruscate

Pronunciation:  kor-uss-kayt

Definition:  To be brilliantly witty.  To give forth flashes of sparkle and light.

fossick

Pronunciation:  faw-sick

Definition:  To search hard for anything of value.


How these two words fit into a typical conversation:

Larry:  I fossick the internet daily for enlightenment.
Mo:  Do you read gooblink.com?  Her prose and discourse have coruscated the World Wide Web.
Curly:  This is gettin' on my noives!

Or something like that.
