His typical response is a BRUSQUE “What? What kind of question is that?” 2. Dad was a (n) INDEFATIGABLE walker. He could hike mile after mile, never seeming to get weary. 3. When they feel nervous and ill at ease, many people try to achieve an air of NONCHANCE by putting their hands in their pockets and humming to themselves. 4. The kids were sulky and MOROSE on the first day of school. They hated to face the fact that summer had ended. 5. “I intend to bear this with STOIC courage,” Serena vowed as she set forth for the dentist’s office. “And also with plentyndf Novocain.” 6. At the end of the day, the 2 graders were as EFFERVESCENT as they had been when it began, telling jokes and giggling. 7. Famous PROGENY of famous parents include Miley Cyrus, daughter of country music star Billy Ray Cyrus. 8. Although they are small, most rodents are VORACIOUS eaters. Mice, gerbils, and hamsters nibble almost constantly on whatever they can get their hands on. 9. Humorist Will Rogers was the exact opposite of a (n) MISANTHROPE. He said, “I never met a man that I didn’t like.” 10.I find this editorial convincing, partly because it is a DISPASSIONATE. I like it when a writer reasons with their readers.
