Wacky Word Wednesday - Uxorious

A man who is uxorious,
Makes his gal's life luxurious -
Always doting, never furious,
That's the essence of uxorious.

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. I'd like to say this applies to me, but I'm divorced, so probably not.

    1. There is someone for everyone, Jeff. I guess she wasn't the one. I've been through the big D myself. I don't think it had to do with whether or not he was uxorious. :)

  2. sounds like the way to be...smiles...

    1. I have a feeling your wife might describe you this way if she knew the word. :)

  3. I'd like to say this applies to me, but my wife would hardly agree! Excellent! I've grown to look forward to your rhymes on Wednesday.

    1. As I told Jeff (above) on facebook today... uxorious men are nearly as rare as unicorns, so don't feel bad if you aren't one of them. :P

      I really enjoy the comments from my regular Wednesday readers... it's a bit flattering to think someone is mildly addicted to reading your rhymes. :) :) :)


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
