There are words I love, simply for the fact they sound like exactly what they mean.
Obtuse is a good example: Slow minded and/or insensitive.
But that depends upon what angle you look at it.
The same can be said for the word Umbrage.
Many people are offended when other people use such “big” words.
I loved playing hangman as a child. There was one word that gave me a guaranteed win: Megalomaniac.
It was no fun once other people learned the word. What an ego deflator!
I had absolutely, positively, and unequivocally no reason for putting this meme into my post. But I am the captain of this ship called “my body” and I liked it.
Did I tell you about the time my daughter wrote an essay about her family? It went something like this:
My mom is a Delorean and my aunt is a van.
I thought it was so sweet! My sister had a few choice words to say. I’ll take out the ones I don’t want to repeat, “What the hell? I’m a VAN?!?!”
Muscle cars, like words, depend upon your perspective.
