My husband gets frustrated when I’m engaged in conversation with him and throw in ambiguous words like “thingey” and “jibber-jabber. He is one who chooses his words carefully and deliberately – sometimes irritatingly so – but it is important to him to communicate effectively rather than succinctly. (Isn’t that word delicious!!)
My father is a Scrabble fanatic and he knows words I can’t believe are really worth the claim of being vocabulary – – much less earning points! Imagine spelling out a two letter word such as “el” and “em” for the letters “l” and “m.” How ridiculous is that!
I go to bed much earlier than Mike does but he always comes in to give me a kiss. The word that popped into my head the other night was “canoodle.” Isn’t that a fun word?
