Word of the Week Wednesday: behoove


 

This Wednesday’s Word of the Week is: behoove.

The word behoove is a verb that means to be necessary or proper.  It’s not an inordinately uncommon word but it’s just old-timey enough to stand out.

It might behoove us to try to slip in into conversation when we get an opportunity.
