Happy Monday! For some reason I did not get my Wordsmith email from which I get each Word of the Day. Fortunately, I can still access it from their website so I can still post today’s word while I figure out what’s up with my subscription.
Oh yeah, and the theme for this week is words to describe people. Have a great week!

 

stolid (STAHL-id)

Usage
