WEDNESDAY'S WORD

AND the word for today is


"OBBLIGATO" noun


(ob-lig-gah-toe)


Now this is a game we haven't played in a while and for all my new readers & followers I will explain.



I pick a word(Wednesday's Word) and you must leave me a comment with the meaning of the word, BUT here's the trick we are rewriting the English Dictionary so the meaning you leave in the comment section must be YOUR interpretation.


Then I do a follow up post with all your meanings. Some of the interpretations we have had in the past have been hilarious.




If you would like to see the "Wednesday's Words" we have done in the past please look at them here.

"OBBLIGATO", an obligation to an Italian friend. Okay, I'm not too good at these things but I'm giving it a go :)

Well I am thinking it is some sort of musical term - Notes to orchestra: obbligato - this is where you all join in or the conductor will poke you with his little stick ..... or baton or whatever they call the little stick.

Hi Caroline !! yes things are good here, busy crazy but still balanced and flowing.

What comes to mind is the Adam Sandler movie "The Waterboy" where he's talking about his "medula oblongata".

So thinking that it's something to do with your brain or brain stem. I studied anatomy so I should know more specifics but I don't.

WRONG! YOUR ALL WRONG! It is a dessert! Gato being a cake and obbli being wobbly...... so therefore its a wobblycake!

xoxoxo

I mean no disrespect to my fellow commenters...... but.... you're all wrong :) Although Cabbage Heart came close with the "wobbly"

This word is from the animal kingdom, specifically a reptile. A 3 legged alligator!

Hello Caroline
I think its a term used (not a very pc term by the way) to decribe the action of moving a naughty child along - 'obliged to use my toe up your ...... if you don't get out of my way'

No child was ever hurt by this threat :)

Take care
Cathy
