L is for... Lugubrious

Lugubrious: Mournful, dismal, or gloomy, especially to an exaggerated or ludicrous degree.

So today is day "L" for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.. time for some fun word play.

So to challenge your minds, and teach you something fun, here is our L word.. Lugubrious.

Just a fun word to say, to me is sounds like a worm-word.. like I see something slinking across the ground.  :)

Who hasn't feel dismal or gloomy at times? Hell, I feel that way most of the time about my writing.. but I am not sure that I can say that I've ever fallen into a lugubrious state over my writing.. yet.

But, if you give me some time, I may just be able to work up to it eventually.


  1. Lugubrious is an awesome word. Some words just make me smile, and that's one of them. Lachrymose is another good one, and come to think of it, a lugubrious person just might BE lachrymose.

  2. I don't think I could say that work, let alone spell it. I like that Twilight Zone episode your picture is from, where the rich jerk buys a player piano whose music causes people to lose their inhibitions and act happy, sad, etc. depending on the tune.

  3. I think it is an SAT word. I remember studying it. I don't think I've ever spoken or written the word voluntarily, though.
