I have a huge list of words that make me cringe whenever I hear them muttered..or just said normally. I loathe them less if they are muttered though. Some of those words include:
liner, damper, jubilee, doily and soda.
There are also a few phrases that pester me like “You just gotta make do”
I can make a bed, espresso and lunch, but do? ick, and “You are gonna be fine” how do you know that?
There are also words that make me smile: espresso, Sunday, thunderstorms, closet, Clorox and food.
Words are powerful. They can evoke emotion both positive and negative. They allow our minds to go to a certain place and to actually feel. That is cool. Well, tonight, I heard a word that got me so pumped up that I had to dedicate a blog post to it. I realized, when I heard this word, that I absolutely LOVE this word. I got so fired up in a good way. My heart started to beat a bit faster and I was ready to go do something awesome
so I ate a cupcake, had a glass of wine and played 25 games of solitare on my phone..oh, and wrote this blog. Awesome.
The word is so cool. I don’t know why. Okay. I’ll tell you the word – shrapnel. Yes. The word is shrapnel. It is even spelled cool. I know what you are thinking,…no I don’t. I love that word. It sounds exciting to me. If you add the word flying before it then it is even better. You can’t even begin to tell me that the words ‘flying shrapnel’ didn’t just incresase your heart rate. Exhilarating! I would never though, want the flying shrapnel to be something painful. Just fun stuff like little nerf footballs and cupcakes and a possible chapstick or wine cork. I feel empowered right now. I am going to go conquour something
where is my iphone? Solitaire is about to get dominated.
What word(s) get you excited?
