Words, words, the musical fruit, the more you say, the less you're cute! (Sorry, it's Friday night, I'm tired. That's the best I got right now.)
Seriously though, words are so interesting. They are how we communicate anything. I mean think about it. Words make up our songs, our books, our talking, our thinking, our describing, you name it. When you look at something, you have to use words to even think about what you're looking at. They are such a huge part of our lives, we simply couldn't do without them.
And some of them are so much fun! For example: thither, felicity, nonsensical, hitherto, awesome, splendiferous, delicious, extravaganza. (I could keep going, but I won't. You're welcome.) But aren't they fun to say out loud? I dare you, triple dog dare you even!, to say them out loud right now, exactly where you are. No matter who's listening, no matter how they may look at you, just pick one word that looks fun to say, either from my tiny little list or one you like, and say it out loud right now. This instant! Go ahead, I'll wait here.
One thing is for certain about this gal, written words are my crazy friends. I mean, you get me in a big room full of people and my mind goes completely blank and therefore I say nothing, but you sit me down in front of a computer to write a blog post and I'll type about all kinds of nothings til the cows come home! (And this post is obviously one of those kind. If you can't tell.)
That's also a problem for me at work. I work in an office and occasionally have to type memos and such. My word vomit gets so bad sometimes, that I automatically have my supervisor proofread any letter or memo I send out now. (Lucky for me, he's a nice guy that way.) And he usually can eliminate about a quarter to half of my sentences. There has yet to be a moment when he proofreads something I've typed and doesn't scratch out at least one sentence or phrase. (My blog posts would probably drive him absolutely nuts!) For some reason, my brain likes to use twenty words to describe or talk about something, when five would actually work just fine. Anybody else have that problem?
If you can't tell, I would love some feedback. Pretty please? With sugar and ice cream on top? :)
I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend. I noticed Bloggiesta is going on, so I may lurk around some of those posts myself. Perhaps my blog will look prettier by Monday. Or maybe it won't. Who knows what will happen? Toodle-loo kangaroos!
