Wicked Writerly Fun #5

I saw the cutest tray yesterday that carried a saying I just loved.

  1. I got a score of MISERABLE. Ha, ha! I only got 2 out of 10 right. Should I be admitting that? Yeah, it’s okay. Those questions were h-a-r-d. 🙂

  2. HA! I have to study…6/10 for me. It is hard, but it’s fun too! 🙂

  3. How fun! I got six. I love games like this. Freerice.com is another favorite.

  4. Okay, I was just *ahem* working on improving my vocabulary, again. I was so excited I thought I was going to jump out of my chair! I was 5 for 5. I was AWESOME!!!! Bubble popped…got the next five wrong. You’ve Gotta Go Study!

  5. Ye gods — I didn’t realize it was going to be asking me word ORIGINS. I got 8/10, almost all (educated?) guessing.

  6. 9 out of 10 for me. Which apparently is “Good”.

    One of them was “nephrectomy”, though. If I didn’t know that one, I’d be in trouble. 😉

  7. Just “Good”????? Geesh, they’re tough scorers!

    My guess on nephrectomy would kidney removal or something like that. But you being a doctor and all…glad you know it! 🙂
