Nice finds. My mom used to use modicum when I was young, as in, "I don't have a modicum of interest in what the other kids are allowed to do!" Thanks for bringing that little memory back :-)
I can't say I ever used either of these words in a conversation. But I like the way Col's mom used the word modicum. My sorry answer to my kids was. "But I am not their mother, I am your mother.
Great words. Thanks for sharing! If you get a chance, my words are here.
I've heard modicum before, but wheelhouse is a new one to me. I guess I need to get out on a boat more often!
