    10 green words

    Post  nancyxiao on Wed Mar 10, 2010 12:59 pm

    Ten Words - Go Green!

    Greenie: a conservationist or environmentalist who participates in protest demonstrations
    My grumpy French teacher went from meanie to greenie; she hosted the Go Green! rally last Thursday.

    Shagreen: the rough skin of certain sharks
    I forgot to moisturize and my skin felt like shagreen.

    Greenth: green growth
    There was some greenth underneath John's thumb. I asked him if he had a knack for gardening. He didn't get it.

    Greenstrips: any vegetation that does not burn easily, left uncut or planted along a roadway or waterway, usually to prevent wildfires.
    I rejected Griffin fifteen times, but he just won't let it go. He's like a greenstrip!

    Greenheart: any of certain other timber trees of tropical America
    Macy tried to insult me by accusing me of having a greenheard, but I told her I'd never bought any timber.

    Greenhead: a male mallard
    The greenheads near my house were quacking so loud, I wanted to make them into duck soup.

    Greenhorn: a naive or gullible person; someone who is easily tricked or swindled
    I told Mike that "gullible" was not in the dictionary and he actually checked. What a greenhorn!

    Greengrocer: a retailer of fresh vegetables and fruit.
    I love my greengrocer; in a time of Angus beef burgers and buttered shrimp scampi, he keeps my waistline in check.

    Greenway: any scenic trail or route set aside for travel or recreational activities.
    My mom and dad took a walk on the greenway; they looked so in love.

    Greenmail: the practice of buying a large block of a company's stock in order to force a rise in stock prices or an offer by the company to repurchase that block of stock at an inflated price to thwart a possible takeover bid.
    Have you heard about greenmail? Apparently in the corporate world, green is the new black.
