“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” ― Rudyard Kipling
Keeping with Mr. Kipling, I have gathered 5 of my favorite words to share with you today. Those words that simply roll off the tongue, or leave you with a smile because everything in life seems magical, even if only for the few seconds the word occupies your thoughts.
Defined by the dictionary as: a luminous impression due to excitation of the retina.
Basically, it’s the stars and colours you see when you rub your eyes.
Maybe because it’s so close to PEZ, which admittedly, I am rather addicted to. Maybe because Abu’s (the monkey in Aladdin) rounded of the character just so. Or even because Fez was one of the more interesting characters in That 70’s Show. I am not really sure why I love this word so much, but I should really try to work it into my sentences more often.
I don’t use this word to offend anyone, I just love saying it. It helps me express myself so much better. I simply fucking love it!
It sounds sexy and exotic, like I would be sitting in a smoky cafe in Europe somewhere, sipping on a freshly brewed coffee, when suddenly a big hairy man with smoldering eyes walk by me, wearing nothing but a… dress… *record scratching*
Ok perhaps not that sexy 🙂
Defined by the dictionary as: unusual, strange
It reminds me of a simpler time, when people still loved the language, and loved to love. Maybe I am just a romantic at heart.
