Word of the Day: Contrite


remorse

Glad to be back after a few days away. I’m afraid I was terribly ill this past week. Even when the weather was hot, apparently, I should not have worn my summer clothes as my body wasn’t ready to be bear just yet. I had a fever for a couple of days, and couldn’t leave bed the whole time. Thankfully, I’m feeling much better, and I’m back to blogging with a word that describes my current feelings.

Contrite [kuhn-trahyt, kon-trahyt] (adj.):

1. caused by or showing great remorse.

2. filled by a sense of guilt and desire for atonement; penitent.

Example:

After getting a fever, I am contrite that I slipped into my summer clothes a bit too soon.

  1. I’m glad you feel better as well. There are quite a few words made from twenty-six letters in the alphabet.

  2. Getting sick is an effective slap, particularly, when one fails to listen to their body. Get well soon, dear!
