Word of the Day for 2/7/18

Ever look up the meaning of a word, only to have to look up the meaning of the word?  Well, today's word made me do just that.

POPINJAY
noun
[PAH-pin-jay]

Definition: a strutting supercilious person  

*This word meaning made me look up "supercilious."  Supercilious means "haughty."  That made me look up "haughty."  Haughty means "having or showing an attitude of superiority and contempt for people or things perceived to be inferior"  Sooooo, a popinjay is basically a person who thinks they are "all that" and you're not.  Popinjay is your word of the day!!!
