Don’t Hornswoggle Me

“Mommy, did you know you can delete the Dictionary.com app from your phone?”
“Why would I want to do that?”
“Do you WANT the Dictionary.com app on your phone?”
“Yes, I do. I like it.”

I’m a word geek. I like to learn new words, understand their meanings, and put them to use. Honestly, I’m not hornswoggling you. I like that every afternoon, I hear my alert sound that I have just received Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day. I like to challenge myself to see if I know the word, or at the very least, can attempt to figure it out.
It takes only seconds to click on the app and read what that word means.
I pride myself in the fact that I’m still learning words…and that I then attempt to use those words in my own writing.
Why not? I say.
It’s one app worth keeping.
So don’t hornswoggle me out of using the Dictionary.com app. I like it just fine.
