You thought I was going to talk about hat making, didn't you? Nope. I don't know anything at all about haberdashery. It's just a great word, don't you think?
Some words are meant to be spoken not just read. Pituitary, ginormous, and lackadaisical. Love to say them. I don't get a lot of opportunities to throw them in, however, so one must be creative.
Me: "I've made a ginormous decision. Instead of being lackadaisical I plan to really use my pituitary today."
Chief: "OK, whatever. Just don't forget the matches and the power steering fluid when you go to Wal-Mart."
Well, okie dokie then.
Anyway some words are just good words. Replenish, particularly, solicitous. Oh, and telecommunication, libertarian, gleek, and resuscitate.
Others, on the other hand, not so much. Lump, desolate, plastic. And who likes to say thigh, scale, weigh (there might be a theme here) or colonoscopy? Not me. No siree.
I would much rather say evidently, juxtaposition, or endoscopic.
Persnickity is a particularly good one. I feel particularly persnickity. Yes, this is excellent. I'm going to say that to someone today. I must choose the right time and place. Probably not here at Rainbow Car Wash where I am currently waiting for my extremely overpriced oil change and car wash to be completed. No, I definitely don't see anyone here that looks like they might appreciate that being said to them at this time.
I should wait.
