One who is cautelous
Sits back watching us,
Hoping not to cause a fuss
While slyly tricking us.
Crafty but cautious -
That's cautelous.

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

  1. You just described my brother.
    And like so many other.
    A silver tongue,
    but lies are slung,
    The black sheep of my mother.

  6. So, its hard for a cautelous person to get caught? Or if you know a cautelous person you should cut your losses? Love playing with these words :-) Thank you Rachel!

    1. That is how I understand it - it is hard for a cautelous person to get caught because they are smarter and more sneaky. I'm glad you enjoy the word play! :)
