The problem is, if we don't use the word in writing or conversation, we don't retain it.  :(
I introduced a word which means the blessing of eating together few months ago but for the last few days I've been trying hard to remember in vain  :'(

Let's start using..


I like to pootle with you. But don't germinate me with one whom  I feel whippersnapper. Rather I prefer to be a viable and want to know more about gerontology.

Is this ok??????????

That sounded a bit awkward....but to practice using the words, this is okay.

 Concomitant-means accompanying. If you run into someone that you have a crush on you might feel nervousness with a concomitant forgetfulness.
