Word of the Day

SUCCINCT: –adjective
1. expressed in few words; concise; terse.
2. characterized by conciseness or verbal brevity.
3. compressed into a small area, scope, or compass.

I love this word! It was uttered in one of my meetings this morning, ironically as a long-winded solution to the wordy error messages generated by one of the web services our team supports.

Honey, i use this word all the time. "Succinctly I was played for by a loser"

Or something like that.

OK maybe I don't use that word, but I'm going to start now.

Ahh, but I bet Harper can't even spell it - never mind putting such a word/concept to good use?

Although, with practice he could get the hang of it? He might, for example, learn to succinctly describe his take on certain current issues. For example Bible=GOOD, Gay Marraige=BAD, KYOTO=NO SUV's. Maybe he's more succinct than I thought?

AHH I could go on but to succincly describe Harper the best word really is: LOSER
