My wife gave me a word for the day calendar for Christmas. I like it, but sometimes a word at a time makes me wonder what I am going to do with them. This word “impetrate” is a case in point. What am I going to do with it? It is not adhering to my soul.

I impetrate you for your help. There, I feel better now. It is a first usage for me. It may be the last.

Tomorrow: What was that word I learned yesterday? Three hundred sixty-five words. How many will continue in usage?

Hope I get this calendar again next year. I will impetrate my wife or it. Hey, I remembered. Alas, I am cheating. It is still today. Tomorrow hasn’t impetrated me yet. It will though. At least for a day.

    One could impetrate you to give us the meaning.
    I am guessing it means implore or request.
    Susan will surely get you another word calendar in 2015

      It happens. I know. Even without impetrate.

    I’d just use “ask” or “beg” or “implore.” Impetrate? Really?
