Incused – Wordplay Wednesday™ 09/13/17

Hey buddy, have ya got a dime?  

Go ahead. Pull it out of your pocket or purse and take a good look at it. Then drop it in an envelope and mail it to … just kidding!

Oh, is the dime too small to see easily without your glasses? No matter, a quarter, nickel, any coin will do; just admire its design and know that it has been …

INCUSED (in kyōōzʹ) adj. – forged with a hammer; hammered or stamped in: said of the design on a coin. n. – such a design. [WW #129] 

While the numismatists (coin collectors) may know the word, incused may not have yet made it into your daily vocabulary. However, given our penchant for competitiveness and always planning ways to one-up our friends, feel free to incuse your writing with designing thoughts, and astonish your friends at the next party.

Word Challenge: INCUSED. A word of a rather permanent nature, wouldn’t you say? Take a look around you—what else do you see in your life that may be incused, as you fit it into your week of indelible writings.

Write first for yourself … only then can you write for others. (L.Rochelle)
