Today's 100words - Salmagundi

Words from a vocabulary test, with some random comments.

Supercilium: an eyebrow. Raised, superciliously, as I wish I could raise mine.

Sussurant: whispering, the sibilants hissing like the echo in a sea shell.

Truckle: to submit. Do you buckle when you truckle?

Ephemeris: an astronomical table. The positions of the stars are, like the mayfly, ephemeral. As are we all, under the stars.

Girasol: fire opal, sunflower, turning to the sun.

Corybantic: frenzied, dancing in ecstasy for Cybele.

Salmagundi: a miscellany, a mixture, a salad with everything. Would be a good title for a blog, maybe. Or for this post.
