One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 13

In the realm of language proficiency assessments, mastering one word substitution (OWS) is pivotal, especially when preparing for exams such as the SSC, including the prestigious SSC CGL. From the foundational stages, like Class 3, students begin encountering these exercises, where a single word stands in for more complex concepts. As learners progress, they compile a growing list of one word substitutions to enhance their command over English. Examples of these one word substitutes abound, with terms like ‘cynosure’ highlighting the focal point and ‘ephemeral’ encapsulating fleeting moments. These exercises are not only integral for exams but also for broader linguistic proficiency in everyday English one word substitution scenarios. Embracing these substitutes provides an easy yet effective way to navigate the intricacies of language, ensuring a solid foundation for success in language assessments.

1201 HORIZON the point where the earth and sky seem to meet “As we stood at attention for the count, the horizon gradually reddened and the top of the sun’s fireball slowly appeared,” said Arnold. By Rennes, the sun has dropped low over the horizon, and the smell of warm manure comes through the open windows, and lines of pollarded trees whisk past.
1202 HOSPITABLE generous and friendly to guests They were such good people, her husband’s family, everyone so well educated, so open and hospitable, each of their houses full of constant laughter. “It is because she has a necessity to be hospitable to the knights.”
1203 HOWDAH seat on elephant’s back The same interest in foreign innovations that explains importing European steel sword blades manifests in the monoplane and silver-colored Rolls-Royce that replace the howdah and palanquin. The Mehrangarh collection includes silver elephant howdahs, Jodhpur school miniatures, arms and armor, and textiles.
1204 HUB the central and most important part of an activity or place “Actually, I’m the only Sally-Q Tool sales representative in eastern Montana. I’m a hub!” On Eighth Avenue, the market carts were parked hub to hub along the curb, improvised canopies shading the withering fruits and vegetables.
1205 HUMANITARIAN sympathetic towards human beings Eisenhower’s remarks revived the contempt for the very concept of a “safe” thermonuclear weapon that had been raised by Strauss’s invention of the “humanitarian H-bomb.” Hadn’t I grown up around gambler-politicians, bootlegger-judges and sheriffs who were burglars; yes, and Klansmen who were preachers and members of humanitarian societies?
1206 HUNG assembly or parliament in which no party has got clear majority Beside him, two bloodied men hung from ropes tied to traffic- light posts. There were always stockings and pink rayon knickers with holes in them hung on a string across the room to dry.
1207 HYDRA a serpent with many heads His palm was moist and hot as a hydra’s swamp. There were miniature lions, pigs, dragons, hydras, even a teeny Minotaur in a little Minotaur diaper.
1208 HYGIENIST a specialist in cleanliness of teeth As the daughter of a dental hygienist, I was interested in his key chain ornament and asked him where he got it. My mother is a dental hygienist by profession, and Dr. Gershom is a dentist.
1209 HYPERBOLE an exaggerate statement Although less given to hyperbole than Washington, Du Bois saw Durham in essentially the same positive light after visiting there less than a decade later. These words coming out of any other boy’s mouth would sound like hyperbole or plain old trash talk, but Boy21 is dead serious.
1210 HYPOTHESIS a tentative assumption, made to drive a logical conclusion I smiled at Twig, but I felt a twisting in my stomach”like my hypothesis was wrong and the world didn’t work quite like I thought it did. This hypothesis, too, has failed to stir enthusiasm.
1211 IDEALIZE to assume something as being perfect It was not the path that Reggie had once idealized, but it was a clear direction and one he was undertaking with typical, quiet resolve. Their bodies are somewhat idealized: less hairy than they really were, the muscle groups in higher definition, the skin luminous.
1212 IDEOLOGY a set of ideas at the basis of economic or political system Her problem, she said, had to do with certain aspects of our ideology. “An Yi, you use facial cream every day. That is bourgeois ideology. And your long hair is, too. Shame on you. Why don’t you get your hair cut short in a revolutionary style?”
1213 IGNORANT lacking knowledge of any happening Unlike other defectors McMahon had interrogated, Shin was ignorant of everyday life in North Korea. “Take a letter. I have to put that ignorant man in his place.”
1214 ILLUMINATE to decorate with light Pillars of chalky light reached up from the ground and illuminated the chapel, which glowed, moonlike, against the night sky. It is warm and solid beneath her fingers, illuminated from within like a lantern.
1215 ILLUSION false belief about the existence of something Volpe loves theatricality of any kind”all the magic and illusion that can be created onstage. It was an illusion, made out of mist.
1216 IMMINENT about to happen very soon Each knew that, alone, he would be unable to achieve the synthesis of an accurate and coherent world system, which they both felt to be imminent. We chatted about the difficult and maybe thankless job Karzai had in front of him, about the upcoming Loyajirga, and the king’s imminent return to his homeland after twenty-eight years of exile.
1217 IMMORTAL that lives forever They couldn’t be caught by six or seven hostile immortals. It seemed weird calling a teenager “sir,” but I’d learned to be careful with immortals.
1218 IMPERVIOUS remains unaffected by other people’s opinions or suggestions She walked through the middle of the boys’ soccer games in the street, impervious to their shouts for her to get out of the way. All three stare at me, the impervious Jenna Fox, at the center of attention once again.
1219 IMPLACABLE unwilling to stop opposing something Why, in the place of love and compassion, were there implacable hate and anger and jealousy? J. Robert Oppenheimer made many enemies with his persistent critique of US nuclear policy and the rush to the Super, but none as implacable as Lewis L. Strauss.
1220 IMPROVISE to manage with whatever is available “The men you were drinking with,” I improvised. The song was always improvised, except for the repeated Oh!
1221 INANIMATE that has no life I mean, I know they’re inanimate objects”I’m not an idiot”but I imagine them all melancholic, waiting for my sister to come back. “Sugah, you have the personality of a jack hammer. You can make inanimate objects nervous. Please relax.”
1222 INCENDIARY planned or designed to cause fire Burnham knew exactly whom he wanted to hire but was less aware of how incendiary his selections would prove. The expertise at distillation that medieval Islamic alchemists developed to produce alcohols and perfumes also let them distill petroleum into fractions, some of which proved to be even more powerful incendiaries.
1223 INCORPOREAL without a body or form In Weep it was she who was the ghost, and an unbound one, invisible, incorporeal, insubstantial as a murmur. Invisible, incorporeal, insubstantial as a murmur, Sarai slipped into their dreams, and what she discovered there, in the hours that followed, proved that the strangers were far from ridiculous.
1224 INCUMBENCY a period of holding official position It was only incumbency that was letting us hold on to the South. “Saul” had the benefits of experience without the complacency of incumbency.
1225 INDEFATIGABLE never getting tired of doing something To so practised and indefatigable a horseman as Mr. Rochester, it would be but a morning’s ride. It was a monumental irony: The man famous as the indefatigable orator of independence in the Continental Congress was obliged to remain silent in the legislative councils of the new government.
1226 INDIGENOUS belonging to a particular place However, indigenous germs and food producers prevented Europeans from settling most of this region in significant numbers. The lack of domestic mammals indigenous to sub-Saharan Africa is especially astonishing, since a main reason why tourists visit Africa today is to see its abundant and diverse wild mammals.
1227 INDOOR something carried on within door or under cover The small businessmen, government workers, and artisans who lived here could not afford the mansions of the Refined, but most of their homes were equipped with indoor plumbing, electric lights, and gas for cooking. The whole of Lucille showed up for the hearing, spilling in crowds outside on the lawn when the building couldn’t accommodate them, watching the outdoor projections of the indoor proceedings.
1228 INFALLIBLE never making mistakes I’d never labored under the false notion that my mom was infallible. In the same vein, it stressed the importance of accepting the evidence of your own eyes, rather than believing implicitly the words handed down from past generations”the Ancients were not infallible.
1229 INFINITE seeming to have no end According to quantum mechanics and general relativity, the power of zero is infinite, so it’s no surprise that people are hoping to tap its potential. How many angels could dance on the head of a pin, and with what matters did God occupy himself in all the infinite aeons before the Creadon?
1230 INFLAMMABLE something that quickly catches fire Leo could make a lot of things, but an inflammable, self-cleaning outfit wasn’t one of them. But that evening, when my fountain pen still hadn’t turned up, we all assumed it had been burned, especially because celluloid is highly inflammable.
1231 INFLATE to fill with air or gas Looking up at him, I see his chest inflates and exhales deeply, and his jaw is square as he clenches his teeth. I ministered to their needs, making sure that there was enough sea water inside each and that the cones and chambers were inflated to just the right pressure.
1232 INSOLVENT being unable to pay one’s debt On Friday evening, October 14, 1983, at 6: 13 P.M., the First National Bank was declared insolvent by the Comptroller of the Currency. According to Oliver, Congress isn’t even close to agreeing on how to fund the soon to be insolvent Highway Trust Fund.
1233 INSULATE to protect from heat, electricity, or bad experience, etc. They were determined to insulate them from what they thought of as the rougher and wilder Catholic community. Myelin is often likened to the plastic coating around electrical wires”it insulates the neural circuits, making them about a hundred times faster than unmyelinated circuits.
1234 INTELLIGENTSIA well educated people in a society Meanwhile, at school I was quietly collecting bits of data, trying to sort out my place inside the teenage intelligentsia. He had very distinct reservations about Negro professional intelligentsia as a category.
1235 INTERLUDE interval between two events And I didn’t mention the angry, icy interlude outside Delaney’s door earlier in the evening. With the demotion of Nick to our ranks, the peaceful interlude began to slip away, and my life once more became complicated, filled with anxiety and finally danger.
1236 INTERNECINE occurring between members of the same group “We can make of the historical record that there was depopulation and movement of people from internecine warfare and diseases,” he said to me. Along the way, there is internecine strife between the gods and some flying Hell’s Angels, the magnificently apocalyptic Valkyries.
1237 INTERVENE anything pushed inside veins Light from the Sun reaches us across the intervening empty space, but no matter how carefully we listen, we do not hear the crackle of sunspots or the thunder of the solar flares. Only a tiny fraction of them is stopped by the intervening matter.
1238 INTESTATE not having made a will (a legal document related to inheritance) The cold relentless circling of the intestate earth. When a wealthy provincial brewer dies apparently intestate, his siblings gather in the hope of dividing the spoils.
1239 INTROSPECTION to examine one’s own thoughts and feelings Once the fighting started, Van Riper didn’t want introspection. Furthermore, in this case we have a much more specific explanation for why introspections mess up our reactions.
1240 IRRELEVANT remarks which do not apply to the subject under discussion The advance of Lola’s dominion was merciless and made self-pity irrelevant. He told me that he now had to turn to some questions that might seem irrelevant to my case but might in fact have a significant bearing on it.
1241 IRREPROACHABLE so good that impossible to be criticized “The conduct of neither, if strictly examined, will be irreproachable; but since then, we have both, I hope, improved in civility.” “I thought you wanted a phone,” Mother said, her eyes so full of surprise they were irreproachable.
1242 JANGLE sound of two metals hitting each other A moment later, Samar’s mother stepped out of the blue house, her keys jangling, a briefcase over her shoulder. The bell above the clinic door jangles as she leaves.
1243 JUDICIOUS showing good judgment “For the departure of guests makes a wound that is easily healed in the heart of a judicious host.” But a skilled writer can enliven and sometimes electrify her prose with the judicious insertion of a surprising word.
1244 JUMPSTART to start an activity with great enthusiasm New technology and fresh perspectives are jumpstarting efforts to assemble exhaustive lists of works by 19th-century American painters, sometimes in progress for decades. Their revolutionary dating strategies arguably jumpstarted the infamous “hookup culture” of Millennials.
1245 JURISDICTION the area over which an official has control Judge Roth had claimed jurisdiction over the entire “metropolitan area.” “We had just crossed the Chesapeake Bay and I did not want to have to deal with Philadelphia’s busy air traffic controllers, so I descended to stay out of their jurisdiction and headed for Trenton.”
1246 KOWTOW to be too loyal to an authority Trees bowed in deep kowtows or broke their backs, a series of snaps like firecrackers popping, until one loud, sickening crack added to the cacophony in the sky. “And don’t expect me to kowtow to you, mortal, just because old Barnacle-Beard is your father.”
1247 LACKEY a person who behaves like a servant of somebody No one must hear what he was about to say, especially not one of his lackeys. “Oh, you know. Coin’s right-hand lackey. The one who tried to stop you.”
1248 LAMINATE to cover a something with thin transparent plastic One of them handed the driver something that looked like a laminated ID card, and the driver handed over something that looked like folded bills, then waved and drove off. But even though the baking sun is slowly laminating me, I am happy.
1249 LEFTOVER food that is left after having meal After we came home in the morning, we quietly ate leftovers from the party the night before, which felt like a million years ago. She began straightening up the kitchen, putting away the leftovers and piling dishes in the sink.
1250 LETHAL that which may cause death Lonely and lovely and lethal, Jon Snow reflected, and I might have had her. Now we are protected against lethal ultraviolet rays by a narrow rim of ozone, thirty miles out.
1251 LICENTIOUS behaving in sexually immoral way The older man at the dormitory leered at her”there was always a licentious implication when a girl visited the men’s housing”and informed her that Caesar was still at the factory. They searched slave villages at will and took liberties as they ransacked the homes of freemen, stealing hard-earned linens or making licentious advances.
1252 LIMP to move slowly because of injury in one leg He turned her loose and she lay back on the bed, limp, whimpering. She limps from the big top and I rush out behind her.
1253 LIQUIDATE to sell your business They did not liquidate the entire ghetto, as they had promised. “I liquidated my stock and turned in my resignation.”
1254 LITERATI people with knowledge of literature To be sure, that’s part of the intention, to skewer the pretensions of the literati. The debate goes round and round, magnetic and circular”a lovers’ quarrel among literati.
1255 LOITER to wait or stand somewhere unnecessarily The characters loitered in deserted rooms, no one talking, everything silent for whole minutes except the hiss of the projector and rain pounding on the roof. However, the soldiers never carried them while loitering about alehouses and wharves, or the stables of the Afric Queen.
1256 MACHETE a knife with a broad heavy blade Fear grips me as I notice the silver machete in its hand, gleaming sinisterly in the moonlight. I hear thumps and clumps and an oof from Matthew and I look up and he’s buried in silage rolls, his arm out to one side, the machete dropped.
1257 MAJESTY quality of being grand and impressive There were other times when I’d be awestruck by the white magnolias blooming outside, the everyday bustle of government business, the majesty of a military welcome. Consider this dog of great elan, of impeccable manner, of ton, enfin of a certain majesty.
1258 MALFORMED badly formed or shaped The face and body may be perfect, but if a twisted gene or a malformed egg can produce physical monsters, may not the same process produce a malformed soul? His lips were yellow and malformed, twisted to one side.
1259 MANUSCRIPT paper written in one’s own handwriting If the editors were told that a British article was of above-average interest, they would try to publish the manuscript almost immediately. I heard nothing from Lusaka about the manuscript and still do not know precisely what Oliver did with it.
1260 MARTINET a person who believes in strict discipline No martinet in the system could have put as much spit-and-polish into a surface as those robots had. As a general, Lot seems to have been a martinet and something of a coward.
1261 MASCOT something that is chosen as a symbol to bring good luck The only witness to my cunning was our school mascot. Either they were in a rush or they were very aware that private-school teachers couldn’t get tenure and didn’t want to rock the boat over a mascot.
1262 MASQUE a dramatic performance For the moment, movements in school hallways are dancelike, a procession of postures in a sexual masque. Years ago, her grandfather had taken her to see a masque in Bridgetown, in which a troupe of players from England had acted out the ancient Christmas story.
1263 MATINEE a cinema show that is held in the afternoon Since the matinee nothing has felt quite real anyway; it’s been enough of a day for me”much more, certainly, than I’m used to. It’s a matinee: I can get there, see the show, then take the bus back in time for my evening shift at the Swiss Chalet.
1264 MAUSOLEUM a building made to hold the dead body of an important person He thought it was an animal, and when he peered around the corner of a mausoleum, he saw an arm rising and falling with the steady, vicious thwop. The Alacrans were buried in a marble mausoleum not far from the hospital.
1265 MAXIM an established principle This result became known by the maxim: “A black hole has no hair.” He lived by a single maxim: “Learn your horse. Each one is an individual, and once you penetrate his mind and heart, you can often work wonders with an otherwise intractable beast.”
1266 MEDIEVAL belonging to the middle ages He sat motionless, without his hat and with his white scarf round his neck, looking more than ever like someone medieval who lived within a frame. Early rock and roll was likened to medieval plagues by the clueless journalists and nervous educators of the time.
1267 MEDITATION profound contemplation on spiritual matters These were the hours for rest and meditation. Mrs. Pontellier’s mind was quite at rest concerning the present material needs of her children, and she could not see the use of anticipating and making winter night garments the subject of her summer meditations.
1268 MELODIOUS very pleasant to listen to He had a deep melodious voice like a finely tuned instrument. Fences snapped with melodious twangs as he plowed through, the strands sometimes whizzing past his ears.
1269 MELODRAMA an extravagant comedy in which action is more salient than characterization However, with my mother acting as director, the inherent tragedy would soon become melodrama. The thing is, Mom hasn’t even reached peak melodrama yet.
1270 MEMENTO something kept or given as a reminder “Although I am rather hungry, and you have, after all, just sold a memento of my childhood for thirty pieces of silver, so to speak.” There was no picture of Melissa, or fingerprints, or note or memento, just a signed court document.
1271 METICULOUS very particular even about small details And then her record keeping becomes less meticulous. Stripping pods is a precise and meticulous job that might be suited to pedantic dentists or finicky spice experts, but it’s a horror for an impatient teenager like me.
1272 MILITIA a group of people who have had military training but belonging to regular army Similarly, after Paul Revere had passed on his news, you can imagine that all of the men in the militia movement gathered around and made plans to confront the British the following morning. Finally the British came upon Lexington Common and the two sides met face-to-face: several hundred British soldiers confronting less than a hundred militia.
1273 MINNOW small or insignificant company or team It is hard to imagine a solitary, independent, existentialist minnow, recognizable for himself alone; minnows in a school behave like interchangeable, identical parts of an organism. There was a dangerous wooden dock, an old minnow tank, a flimsy tar paper boathouse along the shore.
1274 MONOPOLY exclusive possession of the trade in some commodity Rowan was thankful that the suicide king held the monopoly on misery in this room. For one lively half century Pennsylvania had a virtual monopoly on one of the most valuable products in the world, oil, and an overwhelmingly dominant role in the production of a second, coal.
1275 MULTINATIONAL a company that has branches in many countries The Dutch group’s strategy was to ignore the giant multinational drug companies, the ones that rely on research and brand names and patent protection. The blind was ingenious in design and interest had already been expressed in the manufacturing rights”mostly by military representatives”but Artemis had resolved to sell the patent to a sporting goods multinational.
1276 NAMESAKE somebody or something with the same name as somebody or something else Just like her namesake, Omakayas now stared long at the silky patch of bog before she gathered herself and jumped. When she had visited Chicago a couple of years ago, she had told Petra that all of her namesakes had grown up to be very beautiful and very lucky.
1277 NATIVE one whose parents are domiciled European conquest of the remaining native states of Central America and northern South America followed during the 16th and 17th centuries. In my first year, I studied English, anthropology, politics, native administration, and Roman Dutch law.
1278 NAUGHTY a badly behaved child Once we’re on an elevator, Lucy gives us a “Tsk, tsk, someone’s being naughty.” “The naughty ones don’t win Miss Teen Dream,” Taylor called.
1279 NEMESIS unavoidable punishment for wrong doing Thomas Bradwardine, who was to become archbishop of Canterbury, tried to disprove atomism, Aristotle’s old nemesis. Coming back from a shoulder injury, I’d managed to turn in a polished performance on bars, my nemesis.
1280 NEPOTISM favoring own kith and kin Zeitoun was convinced Ahmad was treating him a bit more roughly than the others, to compensate for any suspicions of nepotism, but he didn’t mind. “It wasn’t until then that it occurred to me there was a way into film-making beyond nepotism,” says Wright, who went on to direct Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz.
1281 NOOSE loop of rope But afterwards you went on remembering….She climbed up on the chair, her eyes staring in front of her like a sleepwalker’s…She adjusted the noose round her neck. The toilet-paper noose didn’t have anything to do with an officer’s laxity.
1282 NOSTALGIA longing for something His nostalgia disappeared with the mist and left an immense curiosity in its place. When he does, it’s with nostalgia, as if she’s already a thing of the past, or beautifully dead, like someone in a poem.
1283 NOTORIOUS with an evil reputation “I’m already notorious as an assassin”I don’t particularly feel like being notorious for sharing your bed.” The authors were quick to point out, however, that “Fischer was not a strong enough favorite to be severely harmed by the draw collusion in the notorious Candidates Tournament in Curaçao, 1962.”
1284 NUTRITIVE article of food rich in nutrition Did he bring home nutritive roots and brew homeopathic teas? He knew, as do many Gethenians, the caloric and nutritive value of each food; he knew his own requirements under various conditions, and how to estimate mine pretty closely.
1285 OBESITY having a lot of fat in one’s body It centered on one goal”ending the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation. A man under treatment for obesity suddenly developed symptoms of poisoning.
1286 OBSESS to keep on thinking about a particular person or thing “Daniel Burnham was obsessed by the feudal idea of power. Louis Sullivan was equally obsessed by the beneficent idea of Democratic power.” Much more clearly than anything in Mr. Ludsbury’s study I could see his face now, grimacing in wide, obsessed stupefaction.
1287 OBSOLESCENT outdated things Far from obsolescent, how hardy the ghost story proves as a vessel for collective terror and guilt, for the unspeakable. This early jukebox should remind us that all eras are steampunk in the sense that they contain within them, simultaneously, nascent and obsolescent forms of technology.
1288 OBSOLETE a thing no longer in use They are as obsolete as the old anecdotes in which they played their puzzling, ambiguous roles, and we have no more need for the beasts than for the stories. Evolution occurred in scientific progress as it happened in nature: a positive trait was passed along, then proliferated; obsolete characteristics withered away, and the technology and the organization evolved into something new.
1289 ORCHARD a field in which fruits and trees are grown I think of the blood on Shauna’s shirt, and long for the Amity orchards, the sound of the wind in the leaves, the feeling of bark beneath my hands. To the west, passing a lumber mill teepee burner whose tip glowed red, was an orchard valley along the Rio Grande.
1290 ORDNANCE military supplies and materials We were fired upon, and heard shots in the night, signals between rebels on opposite shores, but knew nothing of what these shots might mean, the language of ordnance spoken in the gloom. Thick ribbons of smoke stripe the valley; occasional flares of ordnance fly like shuttlecocks.
1291 ORTHODOX holding established opinions The pilgrimage to Mecca, known as Hajj, is a religious obligation that every orthodox Muslim fulfills, if humanly able, at least once in his or her lifetime. I was angry with myself for not having taken the time to leam more of the orthodox prayer rituals before leaving America.
1292 OSTRACIZE to expel from society I want to see the kingdom ostracize him. “Is it my fault that you were ostracized?”
1293 OSTRICH a large bird reputed to bury its head in sand when pursued People have got it into their heads, through the cinema and the comic advertisements, that knights in armour generally wore ostrich plumes, nodding like stalks of pampas grass. When Aech and I played in the Basement, I always took the ostrich side.
1294 OUTCAST cast out as useless I wasn’t popular, but I wasn’t an outcast. After feeling more and more like an outcast, Peer Communications was my safe haven at school.
1295 PACIFISM strict opposition to war and violence For thirty-six years I worked for different groups, promoting world government, setting up conferences on pacifism, raising money, stuffing envelopes. Interactions with Moravian Protestant missionaries had shown the Delawares that Moravian ways of religion were similar to their own, including the ideal of pacifism.
1296 PAGEANTRY impressive public ceremonies in which people wear special costumes Oh, the pieces of the pageantry were all the same. Above their heads the trees were full of ravens, their feathers fluffed as they hunched on bare brown branches, staring down at the pageantry below.
1297 PALATABLE food agrees with one’s taste And at this level of experience one’s bitterness begins to be palatable, and hatred becomes too heavy a sack to carry. Wimmer says that Clark asked him, “What will it take to make this work for you? What can I do to get your vote? What do I need to do to make this palatable?”
1298 PANACEA a supposed cure for all diseases or problems Maybe this was the panacea we had been desperately searching for all these years. The long promised “breakthrough,” when or if it comes, cannot be expected to be a panacea for all types of malignancy.
1299 PANTOMIME a dumb show Then Dad winked at me and pantomimed weeping like a baby. They had in fact seen a matinee pantomime at the London Palladium during which Lola had spilled a strawberry drink down her frock, and Liberty’s was right across the street.
1300 PAPARAZZO a photographer who is interested in getting photos of famous people Would you rather have the paparazzi follow you around every minute of your life or never have anyone speak to you again? Dad and his camcorder followed Penny around like the paparazzi follow a rock star!
