Word I Love: Visceral

There are certain words that I love to say. Some words just sound good rolling off your tongue.  Sometimes I like to feel smart incorporating them into a sentence because people will give you a quizzical look like, "Huh?" when you use it.  This is one of those words:

Visceral   pronounced vis·cer·al /ˈvis(ə)rəl/
  • Of or relating to the viscera
  • Relating to deep inward feelings rather than to the intellect: "Joey had a visceral fear of Mr. Jangles"

Try using it in a sentence this week...
