Word of the Day- November 11, 2018

aplomb

(noun) self-confidence or assurance, especially when in a demanding situation

Sentence– During the bomb scare, the teacher managed the children with aplomb and kept everyone calm.

Question– What visual comes to your mind when you see this word?

I can visualize a child standing on the stage with bright lights all around. She is presenting her part with aplomb due to which she gets a great applause. I could hear the clapping. She smiles and comes backstage.

Let me know about your visuals.
