Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Kathy @ Bermudaonion weblog where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading.  If you want to play along, grab the button, and join the fun!  (Don’t forget to leave a link in the comments if you’re participating.)

This week’s words come from A Grown Up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson.

Tractable — “She was tractable now, faded once more to the Liza-less creature the stroke had made her.”

Tractable means capable of being easily led, taught, or controlled.

Gritching — “I could handle a little gritching.

Gritching is a combo of grouchy and *itchy.

Torpid — “But she seemed torpid.”

Torpid means lacking energy or vigor.
