Last year when I asked my Facebook friends what their favorite words are, one friend said she'd always liked prestidigitator [pres-ti-dij-i-tey-tohr].  This noun is another word for magician or conjuror.  I don't know about you, but I have a hard time saying it!  It's a fun word, though.  I even heard it used in conversation a few weeks ago, at our local Pumpkinfest.  (Not surprisingly, it was used by a magician  during his show.)  Here are a few sentences that I came up with using this week's word:

The precocious child piped up, 
"I'm going to be a prestidigitator for Halloween!"

The professional prestidigitator performed 
incredible feats of magic for his amazed audience.

How would you use this word?  What are some of your favorite words?
