A Little Silliness

I am a word nerd. I come from word nerd parents and we all love nothing more than to dive into dictionaries, thesauruses and other etymological resources. I once spent an afternoon consulting various dictionaries in a search to distinguish between the colours lavender, lilac and mauve. I also love nonsense words, probably due to growing up with Dr Seuss (Please don't pronounce it Zeus, the way I keep hearing people do these days.) some of the blogs I visit require a word verification response in order to post a comment. I often fall for these nonsense words; some of them are absolutely lovely. I am particularly drawn to words that contain an s and a y.

Here are some words I enjoyed today.

My mom is just like that. With 6 kids she rarely took time for herself, but I do remember her reading every day. I think that explains her wonderful vocabulary. Sometimes I have to look up a word that she uses. LOL! Of course I never let on that I don't know the word.
