AtoZ Blogging Challenge. G's Big Day

The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out




This post is short and to the point. It's Monday. It's sunny outside. I'm outta here!

G is for Gregarious. 

This is an old word from the 1600s. Latin gregarius "pertaining to a flock; of the herd, of the common sort.

And if you're a gregarious type, you love to be with a group, just like these guys.

    1. We need each other. Writing is a lonely business otherwise!

    1. We must have some telepathy going on in this herd. See you soon.

  3. I can enjoy a gregarious bunch from time to time, a Friday night in particular is good for carousing.

  4. Can I be a herd of one? I make enough conversation with myself to qualify... :)
    I love the cow pic! One facing the camera while the others point their cabooses in a show of solidarity.

  5. Can I skip ahead to S? For sleepy. You gregarious bunch party on!

  6. I learn something new every day. I figured gregarious for sociable, but somehow I always associated the word with being talkative.

  7. Gregarious? Maybe.
    Go-getters? Certainly.
    Goofballs? Some of us.
    Okay, now I've run out of G-word ideas... gotta go!

  8. I love to be wit my flock...but it's usually a very small one, so I'm probably not gregarious. :-)

    1. Small is good, too, Barbara. My family is a small flock and I enjoy being with them most of all.

  9. Good word for the day, and is an appropriate description of who I am! Happy A to Z!

  10. Yes, the perfect example would be the A to Z bloggers. But now I am extremely tempted to dump everything and just go out to the sunny garden. *sneaking away*

  11. what's the opposite of Gregarious -- cause I'm that. :) I like to be with a group of one -- me. Is that so wrong?

    1. Reclusive? And that's not wrong in the least.

  12. I'm only gregarious to a point. Mostly I'm kind of introverted.

    1. I'm gregarious on blogs and that's about the extent of it, Bish.

      Delete
  13. I am not introverted, but I don't like crowds of people and never have. Especially in this day and age. Don't want to get stabbed, shot or robbed!! Ha Ha....I won't go to stores where there is a lot of people either. I can remember once when I was quite young, I walked in to a Cosco store, and stated "I smell people" Ha Ha I turned around and walked out! Not for me!! Cute post though! www.sandysanderellasmusings.blogspot.com

  21. Gregarious! I love that word :D

    Not sure if it really applies to me so much, but I'll certainly find a way to use it.

  22. I'm definitely the opposite of gregarious in person . . . LOL. Great word, though!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think I'm the gregarious type, but that's a self-given description. Love being around people, socializing, in person and the blogosphere.
