a to z challenge, “K”

A to z challenge, 2018.

Today’s letter is “K”….and here I sit staring at the computer…thinking….is there a word in Latin that starts with “K”?  I can feel the specter of Ms Wright behind me, tapping her metal ruler in her hand….I am just waiting for her to bop me on the head with it.  I can HEAR her….”Ms. Suze, open that messy file cabinet of a supposed MIND of yours and tell me what Latin word starts with a K!”.

yes, she did speak to us that way……usually she said things like that just to ME as the other members of the class were football players that could break her like a stick.  K, Suze! K!

katafractarius!

OK…….finally!

What?  the meaning?  sorry, I got so excited I remembered one I forgot to say….it means “wearing mail”.  Not letters!  MAIL! oh………ya know like a knight? on a horse? with a lance?  think RenFaire!

Like this guy…………..okay, I am through drooling now. What were we talking about again?

  2. When I first saw the word katafractarius, I thought you were going to post about comedian and movie star Zach Kalifianakis, but then I realized his last name is actually Galifianakis.

    1. I had three truly horrible teachers…..all the rest were adequate…except four. Those four were exceptional and made school amazing!

  5. That’s pretty amazing. I don’t think I learned any Latin words that started with “k”. Words borrowed from Greek, maybe….
