I Can’t Believe I Missed National Thesaurus Day!

       It seems that there’s a month, week, or day to celebrate or commemorate most things on the face of this planet, doesn’t it?  Months such as Oatmeal Month, weeks such as Cuckoo Dancing Week, and days such as Drinking Straw Day.  But I missed one; I read that National Thesaurus Day was three days ago on January 18!   

       It’s been proclaimed to mark the birthday of Peter Mark Roget, who published the oft-used Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases, also known as Roget’s Thesaurus, in 1852.  In case you’re not familiar with the Thesaurus, it lists synonyms, or alternative words, for words.  There are online versions available today; the original book contained about 15,000 words.   

       But I can’t believe I missed it.  It wasn’t intentional; maybe I’m just…uh…forgetful.  What’s another word for that?

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post every day!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don, http://www.randolphmase.com.  On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out!
