Wacky Wednesday: August 26

On this final Wacky Wednesday of August, the words are wackier than usual. The first word you may not have heard before, but you might be familiar with what is describes. Kakorrhaphiophobia is a noun which refers to an abnormal, persistent, irrational fear of failure. Everyone has experienced a fear of failure, but people with this phobia can find their fear debilitating to the point of them doing nothing. Our next word is another noun. Lamprophony means loudness and clarity of enunciation. One might say something like a stage actor was praised for their lamprophony during the performance.

The holidays today have a bit of everything. For our token food holiday, today is National Cherry Popsicle Day. Who doesn’t like popsicles? It is also National Dog Day. If you were considering finding a new four-legged roommate, today is the day! Next we have two women focused celebrations today. First is National Webmistress Day celebrating women in the web development field. Second is National Women’s Equality Day which commemorates the adoption of the 19thAmendment to the United States Constitution in 1920. After a century, women are still fighting for equal rights in many areas. Show your support for Women’s Equality and be sure to appreciate any women web developers you know today.
