Save-a-Word Saturday

I am going to try participating in this weekly meme! I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it every week, but I’ll try, =)

I think this is a great idea. Between writing, reading, and working at a library, I am surrounded by the written word in one form or another constantly. And sometimes, I am quite saddened by the lack of variety in language. This way, we can rescue some words from the depths of history!

Here is my word to save this week! Read below to find out how to participate in this bloghop yourself, or click the link above!

patration n. – The perfection or completion of something


His face paled.

“In my dream…in my dream she found the river.” He looked across the room, his jaw tight.

“So?” She couldn’t understand his reaction. What did matter to them if the river was found or not? 

“The flower she needs to finish the potion,” he told her sharply, the muscles of his cheeks flexing as he tried to control his temper, “it grows on the beds of that river. If my dream showed any glint of truth, it means she is close to finishing the potion. And the patration of that potion, that poison, means a quick end to everything we know. It will bring chaos and destruction on our entire kingdom.”

Her face flushed. She’d thought the flower was a thing of legend, not something real and so easily obtainable. What would happen now?

    I’m amazed, I have to tell you. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative
    and interesting on web 2.0 site, and indeed, you have hit the nail on the head.
    This particular matter is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

    Now I’m very happy I stumbled upon this throughout
    my search for something related to this.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if
    it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
