Wednesday’s Word (#2)

Aside

Welcome to the second installment of Wednesday’s Word, where I highlight a word that’s either fun to say, not used a lot (but should be!) or sums up my intention for the day. (In case you missed it, here’s the link to my inaugural Wednesday’s Word post.)

Today’s word is…

Obstreperous:
noisy and difficult to control [as defined by the Oxford Dictionary]

I’m highlighting this word because I recently experienced it when I went shopping last weekend. There were a lot of children in the stores with their parents – some were fine but a few were quite rowdy and obstreperous. (The parents weren’t helping much in those cases, either.)

Hopefully you aren’t having to deal with too much obstreperousness at this time of year.
