Wise Words

Since I have a Keep It Short challenge this week, I’m using my words wisely while sharing these wise words:

It only takes one tree to make a thousand matches. It only takes one match to burn a thousand trees.

Thanks, Stereophonics.

Some Favourite Words

I love words. I love books. I love reading.

(Now I just sound like the guys from Ron Burgundy – remember when Brick says ‘I love lamp’?!)

Here are a few of my favourite words at the moment.

 

smorgasbord

onomatopoeia

nook and cranny

facetious (look – the vowels are all in order!)

bokeh (yes, I know it looks like a made-up word. I thought it was. It’s not. Look it up.)

 

I’d love to hear what your favourites are.

But no rudies!

 

Edit: Generally, I like words for what they sound like, rather than their meaning.

Some favourites from a Facebook comment: (Thank you, T!)

balderdash
cacophony
bulbous
gregarious
rambunctious

Roll them around your mouth a bit. Don’t they sound great?!
