Part III

Ok, it's time for another word. Now this word I have used in the past, but it was used as an example of a long, smarty-pants word in a conversation with my mother and I finally stumped her - but only for a second. So here you go...

Word #3
protuberance something, such as a bulge, knob, or swelling, that protrudes.

Used in a sentence: Is that protuberance a gun in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

NOTE: Of course, he was just glad to see me - wink.

My confusion at first was because the words protuberance and protrusion have essentially the same meaning!
Better luck stumping me next time!
