Do I dare offer another word for my distinguished audience? Well, yes, I suppose I do. Otherwise my presence here would be pointless.
Today's word is: DACTYLONOMY
Dactylonomy is defined as the art of counting on your fingers.
Reasons to know this word:
-If you're ashamed of your profession or just feeling like messing with people, you can tell them you're a skilled dactylonomist, then act coy when they ask for details.
-If you have kids and someone else is bragging about how good their kid is at everything, tell them yours has mastered dactylonomy. Yes, it's not the most impressive feat, but it sure sounds like it might be to those who don't know better.
-The word just sounds awesome! Who wouldn't want to use it?
