hyperbole, hyperbole, hyperbole, hyperbole

I love the word hyperbole.  Hyperbole sounds like a rubber ball bouncing around in your mouth. Doesn’t it?  I love words.  I love the sounds of words.  Quixotic.  Ubiquitous.  Anomaly.  Anemone.  Bilious.  Blasphemous.  Cantankerous.  Dilapidated.  Malodorous.   Onomatopoeia.  Salacious.  All sound so wonderful regardless of their meanings.  I loved George Carlin, not for the profanity, but for his love of words.  What a giant.  Is there anybody out there to replace George Carlin or  Richard Pryor?  No.  I have not seen anybody with the universal appeal and intricate knowledge of the use and power of language since those two.  And why, you ask, am I even talking about this?  No clue.  Just a ramblin’ kinda gal, I guess.  It is Wednesday after all.

I am currently working on a quick knit for a friend.  I have no idea why I write the word quick when referring to my knitting.  There is no “quick” in my knitting vocabulary.  Oh, I’m sure someone else can knit quickly and whip up a hat or something (I’m thinking of Cookie here), but I’m not one of those.  So, my quick knit for a friend will probably go on for at least the rest of this week.

My soundtrack for mid-week?  How about some ELP and “Still You Turn Me On”

Have a good one!!!

    Thank you for reminding me to take joy in words today. I’ll try to use at least one of these while in a teacher/parent conference this morning regarding my youngest daughter. I miss knitting. Hugs to you m’dear!

    Great words and I love how you describe them as rubber balls bouncing inside the mouth 🙂

    I need to get some quick knits started too, for a swap I signed up for earlier this month. Hopefully I can get them done by the end of the month, as I am not a “quick” knitter by any means.

    Happy Wednesday! This will be my Friday for work (along w/ an extended 5 day “weekend”) as Bear’s mom’s in town for a week.

    I agree with you. People don’t seem to enjoy or play with words like they used to. Too busy texting, I guess. 😕

    Quick compared to those projects that feel like they might outlive you. Is that better? A hat vs your Purple Pi for example. Does that make better/more sense?

    yum yum yum. Ubiquitous. I love the same words as you.

    This week in class we’ve been playing with the word “porcupine.” It’s a funny not oft used word and when you’re in third grade or less it is inevitably pronounced “porkypine.”

    Late again.. tardy you might say. I’m with you on the love and play of words and yes… hyperbole..bouncing around in your mouth like a rubber ball, it does indeed!
    I also like those words that feel like warm honey in your mouth.
    Quick. Like all things it’s relative. :^) xoxoxox
