Ok so since we are trying to expand our minds, I would like to see how this goes. For those of you who like crossword puzzles it may help sometime, so what I think we can do is put a word to test someones knowledge and the next person would give the definition and another word to define. There is no cheating, you can do what you have to do define the word...the idea is to expand the mind...something I know I need! icon_lol.gif so here is my word for someone to define.


Triskaidekaphobia
