Paris: contrition, addle, tumult, effect, explicate, mores

June 11, 2006

Paris Hilton was caught on videotape as she backed her SUV into a parked car and drove off, seemingly without contrition. Her publicist explained that she was addled by the flashbulbs of a swarm of photographers and the tumult caused her to effect the accident. He further explicated that, in accordance with social mores and the laws of California, Paris notified a parking attendant and provided her contact information to be delivered to the victim.

addle – (verb) to confuse

tumult – (noun) the noise and commotion of a large crowd

effect – (verb) to bring about

mores – (noun) traditional ways

  1. What I have constantly told folks is that while searching for a good internet electronics retail outlet, there are a few variables that you have to factor in. First and foremost, you would like to make sure to find a reputable and reliable retailer that has enjoyed great evaluations and rankings from other consumers and business sector leaders. This will make certain you are getting through with a well-known store that delivers good assistance and help to it’s patrons. Many thanks sharing your opinions on this blog.
