Call me the Angelina Jolie of words.

Thanks to NPR, I discovered that there are poor, abandoned words out there who need our help.

So in the spirit of giving, I adopted a word.  (Yes, I could have adopted a child or a cow or a tree, but adopting a word is free, and I'm cheap like that.)

Anyway, my word is pamphagous, meaning "eating or consuming everything."  Fitting for me, no?  I'll be using it early and often, rescuing it from a life of obscurity by sprinkling it in my everyday speech, giving it shelter and sustenance in my blog.

Who knows, if it behaves itself and all works out, I might adopt another.  In the interim, there are other words that need your help, so go to the word pound now and save the words.

What fun! Not sure I could handle your word, but hopefully there will be something a bit more ... housebroken? ... still waiting at the pound. I'm off to check!
