And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

  2. Ha, ha...when I first looked at the word, I thought it said 'calculator' and I thought 'what is she doing...everyone knows what a CALCULATOR is' LOL. Great word this week Rachel!

    1. LOL!!! :) What a fun word trick. I didn't forsee that. Also... how cute. We were reading each other's blogs at the same time. <3

  3. I'll be the first to admit I'm a cunctator, which always gives me something to do later.

    1. I am a cunctator sometimes, but it's because my to do list has too many lines! :P

    2. I must be a robot, it took me 5 tries on the word verification!
      Make that 6!

    Great word and poem, Rachel!

  5. Dear Rachel,
    When it comes to love, I am definitely not a cunctator, although there are some days that I can be...much to my wife's dismay! (lol) Another word I've never heard of. It wasn't even in my dictionary. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hehe. Yes, many of the words for Wacky Word Wednesday are not in regular dictionaries or recognized by spell check. Sometimes that is how I determine if they are unusual enough to be used for WACKY Word Wednesday. :)

    1. I'm so glad it made you laugh! Yes, a couch potato is generally a cunctator, unless they are ill, in which case they are a justified procrastinator. :)

  7. What a great word (as always), I'm definitely a bit of a cunctator when working, and often look at this site while cunctating :)

    1. Well, if someone ever calls you one, just tell them, "No... I'm a cunctator!" :P

  12. Do you need that word verification? Truly I tried 8 times before I was able to post the last comment. Would it be possibe to remove it? I don't have it and don't have trouble.

    1. I'm sorry you had such trouble with it Mary. Unfortunately, I added the captcha for a reason. I get a good number of spam comments without it and I don't want people putting links to their scammy websites in my comments section. I tried taking it off again a few months ago, but immediately got spammy comments again, so I put it right back on.

    2. I find Google very good at filtering out the spam these days.

    3. I wish Google was able to do it for me. As I said, I've tried taking it off before, but I end up with links to sites that sell vaporizers, electric cigarettes, and worse littering my comments section.

  13. This is clever and amusing, not to mention instructive!
