    In high school I was taking a test and one of the test questions used the word “eschew.” I had never encountered the word before but guessed it implied something either positive or negative. The answer to the test question rested on the meaning of the word. I went to the teacher and told him I needed to know the meaning of “eschew” in order to answer the question properly. He said, “I eschew the fact that you do not know the meaning of this word.” I was able to answer the question.

    “Eschew Obfuscation”

    I probably wouldn’t know the word either other than I read the Bible and in the first chapter of the book of Job it says Job was a good man who eschewed evil. It’s a fun word to throw around just to get people scratching their heads.

    It’s not a word I normally use, but a normal vocabulary should certainly include eschew (of understood words). As not all my friends have extensive vocabulary, I try not to use any words that would not be understood.


    My latest beau, however, is much more erudite (we play with puzzles on the radio and elsewhere) and I don’t limit myself with him. We also exchange books and have read many of each other’s favorites.

    Should I use a word not understood I would tell them its meaning. That way they can learn too. How else can one learn, and also be one’s self otherwise?

    Today at Creators.Com, with four years left in 2014, the new calendars are out. But….

    Josh Lyons: Calendars can be recycled. Just update those from lunar calendars that wander around the Gregorian one, like Yom Kippur, Easter, and Ramadan. 2014 will come around again in 2025. They repeat in a 6, 5, 6, 11 cycle. If you have a 2009 calendar, it will be usable for 2015. Leap day is what throws it off from just regressing one day per year.

    I never even saw a test in college that used that word.

    Amazing. Back when I was a kid, a neighbor had a calendar on her from (get this) 1950! She didn’t took it down until my graduation! (Spring 1978).
