Hey Sparkle Writer! Thank you for reading today’s #WordOfTheDay post. Overtime we’ve added new words to our vocabulary through this series and we’ve had so much fun doing that.

So let’s get back to the question of the day; are you officious?

Officious /əˈfɪʃəs/ means meddlesome and interfering, characteristic of somebody who is eager to give unwanted help or advice.

This word can also mean assertive of authority in a domineering way, especially with regard to trivial matters.

Let’s look at a few examples

The security officials were too officious

The bosses’ son sticks his officious nose into everyone’s business.

Try using this word in a sentence and let us know how it goes.
