Words I Like: Demur

Demur: Defined as "to make objection, esp. on the grounds of scruples; take exception; object." Most often used to gently indicate the speaker's frustration with the obdurate, as in "I asked Glamourbrain for her number, but she demurred."

Not to be confused with demure, which your humble author never is.
