Happy Monday dear readers … here’s to a great week.
You get to adopt words that people rarely use … no … not please and thank you … and then you are encouraged to use them as often as possible.
The words call out to you … literally.
I’m thinking of becoming a professional word Parent and adopting a few hundred … yeh I know … there will be all those late nights trying to find out where they have gone … times when I’ll comfort them because no one wants to play with them … but I love words so I’ll take the whole package.
I’d like to introduce you to my first word child … pessundate … not to be said when drunk.
And funnily enough pessundate is all about drinking.
Pessundate means ‘ water drinker’.
As in ‘as a pessundate I found it quite intimidating to find myself in a bar … so I mixed it with scotch’.
Go adopt a word child … encourage your children to make friends with them.
Thanks to everyone who has been sending me get well wishes … and I’ll be publishing Phil’s fab/funny poem this week.
Still have the flu and have stayed indoors since Friday in a cough syrup induced dream/flu/fever state … interesting place to visit.
Now? I think I’ll go and get pessundated.
