A = Abstemiously

For Fun Friday this week, I am posting a word.


What is so special about this word? Remember that this is Fun Friday, so try not to put too much thought into it.

If, however, you would like to delve beyond the fun and find out more about this word, abstemious is characterized by abstinence or sparing or moderate eating and drinking. How can that relate you your life? You can answer facetiously, yet it would be interesting to read people's various perspectives.


  1. I know what is special about has to do with the vowels A,E,I,O,U and Y! So does Facetiously!! :)

    On the subject of Abstemiously....I get to do that when my disease is active...abstain from moderate eating and drinking....such fun...NOT!! ;)

  2. That is correct, A.Marie! ...and for the record, facetiously is another word that has all of the vowels listed in alphabetical order.

  3. Ha! Sounds like something fun to blog about. Stopping by from CBC. Blessings!

  4. Hillarious! I'll have to use that one in my next game of banana grams with hubby. :)

  5. It's a game similar to scrabble. It's a good way to excercise your gray matter :-)

  6. Oh, I saw a big word! Abstemiously- just rolls off the tongue!

    I saw a few people who could benefit from eating and drinking in such a manner at the last church banquet! :D
