A reminder to Ones' self how powerful words can be. A slip of the tongue can devastate . One word can be uplifting.
When I am over stressed or rushed. I say "YeeHaw!"
Doesn't have to be shouted. In fact, I usually say it quietly. Those around me smile, give me a second, and I am myself again. It actually works as a great pressure valve for me.
DO YOU HAVE A WORD YOU SAY?
Some are remarkably fun. Said with a smile and makes your mouth Happy:)
Electricity ( said electrisssssity)
I love the word Jocularity ( sounds kinds dirty, doesnt it)
state of being jocular * joking*
For Cat on a Hot Tin Roof fans :
Mendacity , a pleasant word to say. Alas it means untruthfulness; falsehood; lying
This next one makes me blush and giggle at the same time.
WHAT OTHER WORDS ARE FUN TO SAY?
I was taught that using foul language was coarse, vulgar, and only those "beneath" us it. What ever that meant. You always watch your mouth around women, strangers, and your elders.
When I was small I told my mom.."When I stubbed my toe, Thank you Jesus, did not cover it."
In a professional situation One becomes very creative. I have a habit of saying," Son of a Fruity Undertaker!" In private I do cuss. It just happens. I have to remember to watch who may over hear me.
R told me that our cat George was very Patriotic.
Because every day I trip over George. Every day I am heard yelling," God Bless America, George!!!!"
This is an admonishment to one's self. To my shame, the past couple of days my patience has been short with R. And those freaking fraking telemarketers.
Whatever the reason is, there is no excuse for me to say things in the wrong tone to R.
Tis my problem I shall try to self correct.
