What can YOU say in six sentences?
As an avid reader/writer, I’ve become quite fond of certain words. Supercilious, for example – totally faked me out as it doesn’t have anything to do with being super silly, but in fact quite the opposite. And then there is Delicatessen, which I learned how to spell in 2nd grade by breaking it down by syllable – deli, cat, ess, en. I proudly displayed my knowledge of spelling Delicatessen with my finger on foggy windows, sticks in sand - any medium I could find. Oh and I cannot forget Curmudgeon, which is just a much more fun and colorful way of referring to someone who is being a grouch.
So tell me, what’s your favorite word?
I think it is Stardust.
I just like the idea that billions of years ago some long departed star blew itself apart and in doing so created the various bits and pieces of elements that went into making me ... and everything around me, (and it definately sounds better than nuclear waste).
I think Circumbendibus has to be my all time favourite. I wrote a children's story based on it a good few years ago now.
