Friday Vocabulary - Contumacious

This weeks word, as you can see by the title, is contumacious. Well, actually, the word itself is not contumacious. I mean the word is contumacious but it's not acting contumacious. Contumacious is the word I'm going to define. So, now we will get to business.
If you are insubordinate, rebellious, disobedient and willfully resisting authority, then you are contumacious. Children are usually contumacious around two years of age. I know I certainly was. In fact, I was contumacious until I became a christian.
So, there you have it. The definition of contumacious. See you later.
