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 really like curmudgeon, especially since I became one. I also have a fondness for hinterlands, serendipity, piquant, and superfluous. I really hate the word obfuscate. I am beginning to like conundrum. Yeah, I seem to have a thing for the vowel u.
Like most of you, I love to read; it is fast becoming a lost art and a disappearing pleasure. I bemoan the diminishing skills of grammar, spelling, and mental math calculation in the younger generations, but I do not obsess over it or believe that these diminished skills herald the beginning of the end of civilization.
Love this site. I hope all of you terrific people continue being brilliant.
