The inspiration for this post hit me yesterday while at work. I had to look up the spelling of a word in the trusty ol’ Merriam Webster dictionary sitting on my shelf.
I opened it up to a page that I thought was close to the word I was looking for and when I saw the guide words at the top, I had to laugh.
They were “numerous – nuts.”
So then I decided to skim through a little bit more and see what other nifty combinations I could come across. Here is what I found (sans the n-dash):
Faith fall apart (sounds like the lead singer of a rock band)
Weary wedding march
Wanna have a go at it? Grab your nearest dictionary, find the best ones you can and post at least five of them in the comments section.
GO! And have a great weekend!
By the way, I hope the new blog design wasn’t too shocking. WordPress changed things around yesterday so I figured while I’m finding my way around the new place, I might as well make some changes. So there you go, and don’t be surprised to see more changes in the near future!
First, I’ve a whole bunch of post ideas so stay tuned.
But before all that I have to ask: am I weird?
The reason is simple. When I get to work in the morning, after clocking in I head over to the kitchen and store my lunch in the fridge. The next step is to grab an ice-cold cup of water so that I can have something to wash down my first of two 500mg vitamin C tablets.
Not strange, you say? Then why do I always get devious stares from the coffee-drinking masses that are waiting in line at the brewer like it’s the mailman delivering their welfare check? And for the record, I don’t drink coffee save for those foofy Starbucks drinks that barely qualify.
Anyway, comments are open and there’s a poll to boot. Go to it. I’ll be sipping my H20 while I read the results!
