Day 3738: Proficuous

Learning new words is proficuous, so I was happy to receive this email yesterday:

I believe that almost everything we encounter in this life is proficuous in some way.

Are my images for today proficuous?

As usual, the Daily Bitch is proficuous.

I want to wish my old friend Joe (who thinks this blog is proficuous enough to read it) a very Happy National Joe Day!

Here’s what I find when I search for “proficuous” on YouTube:

I also think it would be proficuous to share this on World Theatre Day:

I look forward to your proficuous comments below.

Gratitude is always proficuous, so thanks to all my awesome readers, including YOU!

  1. natural happiness day, cheers

  2. My friend John invented a word-forward game that’s available online, Ann. I wrote about it on my blog. Cattywampus Edition by would make you, Michael and Aaron happy, I do believe, with its collection of interesting words.

  3. ‘go’ day.

  4. Proficuous – an entirely new word for me, which is odd because most words, even if I don’t know what they mean, look vaguely familiar. The pronunciation is also weird – c comes off as ch? Pro-FICH-uous. And other than take your lead on considering everything around me to be of worth in some way, I can’t think of any use in which it would be the *just right* word for me. That is, I think it would have to involve “profit” as well as “worth”?

    • According to the definition, it involves profit OR worth, and according to spell check, “proficuous” isn’t a word, for whatever that’s worth. Thanks for your always proficuous comments, Barbara.

    Joan: “I can nap while perched precariously on top of curved furniture, or while curled up in a soft comfy bed.”

    Yet another word I learned, your blog is definitely very proficuous for me!

  7. I love paella, but the only Spanish restaurant here closed only a few months after it opened. It wasn’t proficuous.

  8. Now that’s a wonderful new word I will likely trot out from time to time! I think all of your photos were proficuous, Ann. 🙂

  9. It’s Proficuous
    To walk
    on Leash
    and Taut

    and Where
    or What
    A Beam of Light
    A Cat

    To Lead this Way
    A Gilded Path
    Around a fence
    and Back

    Content and Purred
    To Come Aboard
    At Last
