Word of The Day

The word of the day is AMOROUS, keeping with RED, the theme of the week. This adjective means “strongly attracted or disposed to love”. In a sentence, “My partner shot amorous glances at me.”

Members who don’t use the word pay a $0.50 fine. There’s no penalty for guests.

Talking Points

Each attendee spoke for 25 to 55 seconds about a randomly selected topic from a red envelope. Guests were invited — but not required — to participate. Given the large attendance, the slightly shortened speaking times helped the meeting finish on time.
