Morning Exercise 7-7-14: Word “Veracity”
Start with the word of the day from the New York Times.
veracity •\və-ˈra-sə-tē\• noun: : unwillingness to tell lies
Sounds like the capital of Iowa or Idaho: Vera City.
No one there ever tells a lie.
“Jesus, you look like hell this morning.”
“I just farted, by the way.”
Or a movie with Bradley Cooper.
He’s an eyewitness to a Mob killing.
His girlfriend: “Just lie, for God’s sake. You’re driving me nuts.”
Or a new drug.
Gauzy commercial with picture-perfect family frolicking on emerald-green lawn.
You’re never sure what the drug’s for. Maybe feeling sad? Having to live in a world that’s not a commercial? Being too human?
“Side-effects may include hair loss, sexual dysfunction, gastric pain, and tactlessness.”
