One Word Wednesday

Velleity

Darby issued soft warning growls in Harry's direction, but, evidenced by her lack of action, they were more a velleity than a statement of determined intention.*


* I found the word velleity in a newspaper article this weekend.  I read a lot so I don't often find new (to me) words.  For some reason I love this word and hope I've used it correctly in that sentence.

Hey Darby!
Wow, you're more patient than I am! I would have issued a really big Sarge-BARKBARKBARKBARK and scared that poor kittie right outa his fur! BOL. Great word and my Mom's gonna try to use it too.
Grr and Woof,

Since we don't know the word velleity, we're sure you used it correctly...BOL!

Glad Darby lets Harry know his place...even when napping.
