It's amazing how many words there are to describe a single feeling. I've always had a love of thesauri. I randomly chose three words that describe my day today and looked them up in a thesaurus. While a majority of these words do not apply at all, some are accurate, though I never would have come up with them on my own. I think "deleterious" is by far my favorite. I like the way it tickles and teases your tongue when you say it with a superior air. "Iniquitous" is quite fun to say as well, though doesn't really apply.

I just used 185 words to say: I had a BAD day. I guess there is a librarian in me after all.

Are there words starting with x, y, and z to describe a horrible day in history? At least words that incorporate these letters?
