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.


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) emoticon
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.
punany emoticon

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.
How come?
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.
Thank you.

    I say 'fudge' when I'm in a situation where I can't say something worse.

    My younger son and I both love words and have had many conversations about them. We agree that we both like words such as wisps and crisps. Just a lot of fun to say.

    I blogged about this last fall and it still makes me laugh. I was at work listening to the interent broadcast of our local NPR station. They were doing the fall foliage report and said that in one place the leaves were 'at average brilliance." I stopped working, blinked a couple of times, and then burst out laughing.

    'Average Brilliance' - darn it, it might as well be simply mediocre. LOL

    Have a great Sunday!

    "Gunfunit" and "Son of a Biscuit" are two of my favs. I hear you about tone and inflection, and Taking things out on the innocent party. I often find myself apologizing, and explaining what has me snapping and snarling has nothing to do with the person I am snapping and snarling at. emoticon

    P.S., I love the Maxine with the cat....I love my kitten (he is 14, I guess he isn't a kitten anymore) more than anything but he keeps me up all night....so I pet him. And he drives me nuts!

    Ah, words....it reminds me of one of my favorite songs, by Depeche Mode..."Enjoy the Silence." Sometimes it is hard to temper our words, especially if things have been stressful or difficult for some reason. We tend to take it out on our most loved ones. I have a real problem with this but have learned over the years to be more careful. Still, it doesn't mean that I don't slip from time to time. We are only human and we try our best but sometimes we mess up. I think when that happens we must forgive ourselves for it and then apologize to other.
