Word power

Interesting words I encountered while meandering through the blogosphere:

gobsmacked (GOB-smakt), adj. -- Brithish slang (though used here, too) for utterly astounded, astonished, flabbergasted, as in: "I was gobsmacked that TeD Cruz could talk so eloquently for more than a half hour without using a teleprompter."

salubrious (suh-LOO-bree-uh-s). adj. -- favorable to or promoting health, as in, "I don't care if there are no salubrious effects from caffeine, I'm not giving up my coffee."
