Welcome to the first Wacky Wednesday of September. It’s a light day but still fun. We have a couple words and a couple holidays. Nothing too crazy. Our first word is Microsmatic. This is a simple adjective meaning having a poor sense of smell when referring to humans and certain animals. It’s not likely a term one will need for small talk. Unless you’re a pretentious know-it-all. Our next word is another adjective. Nudiustertian means of or relating to the day before yesterday. Similar to saying “yesterday morning” one could say the “nudiusterian morning.” Though I’m certain everyone just says “the other day.”
Our token food holiday for today is National Blueberry Popsicle Day. Since last week celebrated cherry popsicle day, it feels appropriate to continue the theme. Today is also National V-J Day. What does that mean? It stands for “Victory of Japan” by the Allied Forces during World War II. The surrender was officially announced on August 15, 1945. The official signing of the surrender was today September 2, 1945. This took place on board the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. That’s all for the bit of history and fun facts for the day. I’ll be on the look out for more exciting words as we near the end of the month. Please comment with any suggestions.
