Speaking of words…..not that we were……But anyway
Let’s play with words today, just because I’m bored and I have nothing better to do except housework and I avoid that like the plague.
Grumptious-Someone who is grumpy but in a delicious way.
Wit for Brains – Some one who is witty but in a shitty way. Shittily witty. Or wittily shitty.
Bother in-law – An in-law (or out-law) that won’t leave you alone. This one is a unisexual term that can be used for all in-laws of any persuasion.
Pooppees – It’s what puppies are until they are housetrained. Count on it, I know!
Crapromise – That’s a promise someone makes but they have no intention of keeping it.
Crampromise – Along those same lines, a compromise that never really pans out.
Alright, I ran out already. But I just got to thinking about the word “bill”. It can be someone’s name, it can be the long hangie-out piece on the front of a hat, it can be the really long hard lips on the face of a fowl or a platypus, it can be something you send to congress, or it can be something you have to pay. We really make our words work hard don’t we?
I love words. They are some of my favorite people. And since my brain got smushed, they have become a source of endless amusement for many people, including me. For instance, the time at the Pawn Shop, in June, when a customer was leaving and I told him to have a Happy Thanksgiving. I have NO idea where that came from. I was trying to tell him to have a good weekend. My brain has a mind of its own, though. That’s probably why I told another customer to have a good idea instead of a good afternoon! Although having a good idea is never a bad idea, after all. And then there was the time I was trying to tell someone about Princess Bella’s latest accomplishment. “She can ride a horse without training wheels” Hmmm No, that’s not quite right is it? I tried it three times and bike came out horse every time. Finally Bella had to say it for me.
Now you’re going to see a horse with training wheels all day long aren’t you? *giggle* Good! Me too! Now, at least I won’t be the only one!
It just goes to show you, a word is worth a thousand pictures.
