2 new words

In reading a blog response by someone on another blog, I had to look up the meaning of 2 words in one reply. I'm now trying to add them to my general vocabulary...and having fun with it when I get funny looks from people wondering what I'm talking about.

The two words and shortened definitions...

Inimical - unfriendly, hostile.

-(said to my kids...Just because you don't get to do what you want, is no reason to be inimical)

Didactic- Intended to instruct, or the practice of valuing litrature for it's instructional content.

- (My mentor can be pretty didactic when we're training.)

I'm wondering how long it'll be before I have to hand out definition cards while I'm having a conversation...

I love words, especially new ones. Thanks for these 2. Seana's blog is a good resource for learning new words.

Yeah, I've had fun with Seana's blog, in fact, I enjoyed a funny look from a friend when we were talking about something and I commented "What a shambles". I'm pretty sure she wondered what I'd just said :)
