Recently, I purchased a new Amish love story by Kelly Long. She’s a new author for me. But I needed something to read and enjoy during moments of downtime. And the title Lilly’s Wedding Quilt intrigued me. So it was plucked off the shelf and placed into my basket with great anticipation for a romantic adventure. But my limited vocabulary has made it hard for me to enjoy the book. As I reflect upon my frustrations in having to stop reading to look for the meanings of words I probably will never use I find my behavior childish. Honesty, I feel my juvenile outlook during reading this book keeps me stagnant in building my vocabulary. So to keep me interested in reading what seems to be a great novel I have decided to use the words I do not know on Vocabulary Mondays.
Part of Speech: adjective
Word usage in “Lilly’s Wedding Quilt”: “She blinked her eyes, licking surreptitiously at a splat of rain that dripped past her mouth, then spoke the first thing that came to her mind.”
Now . . . I realize everyone online is not searching for cyber sex; but the dialog between the two cartoon characters renders the actions of a percentage of lonely people, a percentage of people who are predators, and a percentage of people who enjoy tormenting others to feel better about their life failures. And out of the three those that are lonely will push aside everything instinctively that keeps a person safe for the sake of having companionship. Thus ignoring the red flags, as they give unearned trust to people who could do harm to them and those they love.
Therefore, since a few people have forgotten the meaning for “trust” I have selected it for today’s Vocabulary Mondays word. In hope this blog post find its way to those that need reminders to stay safe when playing online with others. Because in all honesty no one knows who or what they are truly conversing with on the internet . And sadly so many people are forgetting the internet is the number one tool for predators to find their victims. Remember:
“Trust is earned not given”
