It was the word of the day.

ignominiously adverb
ignominiousness noun

  1. Oh, I love it that you found a word at the gas station like that! It’s a great word too! Thanks for playing along.

  2. A different place to find a word.

  3. A great word! Probably not one I would use, however!

  4. Vicki,I like the idea of learning a new word at the gas station. I did not know the meaning of this one!

  5. The gas station? I love it! I need to keep my eyes open. I also like the new word. I’m familiar with ignominious, but ligminious is new. I’m wondering why someone picked that as a word of the day. Fun to think about.
