Miss. Connor, my 4th grade teacher at PS 277 told us to learn a new word every day. And she told us to keep a notebook, and write down words we come upon when reading so we can look them up in the dictionary later on.
In this notebook we were supposed to write down the meaning of the word, and then a sample sentence with the word.
Today, I learned a new word:
The overwhelming feeling of euphoria induced by a particularly stirring political moment. An orgasm of a political nature.
