Word Up!

I know, I know.  I’ve already told you I was an 80’s teen, so you are just going to have to expect some of these shenanigans.  I love a good pun or a clever play on words.  Words are mighty fun playthings, yet powerful tools all at the same time.  I want to honor them and use them in an honoring way.  That’s what my Wednesdays are all about.  Just for fun, I may even join in on a Wordless Wednesday  just for the fun of it.  I still have to figure out that putting in a picture thingy.

I love to read.  I used to do it a lot more before the Little Guy came along.  I love to learn, hence the title.  Reading is a great way to learn, but every now and then…. There it is again.  That word, you know the one.  It’s one of those 50-cent words.  You’ve seen it lots of times but just haven’t been able to put your finger on what it means.  Who keeps a dictionary on hand to look those up?  By the time you get to a computer to look it up you’ve forgotten what it was or that you were even bothered by it.

 I want to figure out what those words mean and fill you in, too.  Maybe we’ll even try to sneak them into a conversation.  Won’t others just think we are so smart?  Probably not, but you will.  I’ve started a list, but like I said you forget about them.  Send me your words.  You know you aren’t alone, I probably won’t know it either, but I would like to.  Is there a fringe benefit to this?  Yes.  You can start smoking your opponents in Words with Friends!


  1. LOL We are kindred hearts on this one. I have a list of favorite words. I keep forgetting them. One is cacophony, I learned it years ago while doing high school spelling with my son (home educated - pb doesn't do spelling in high school).

    I often play the Word dynamo on to learn new words and test how many words I do know.

  2. I just found that, it was really interesting. I love interestig words.
