Every single time I see or type the word "shrub" I smile. I cannot help myself. The lips just go up, no matter how hard I try to straighten them.
Saying it out loud causes a great bubbling of laughter to come up.
I love the word shrub. Love. It. It's true--I have a shrub thing.
Since I'm back at school (insert banshee-like wailing and gnashing of teeth here), I need a good laugh every single day. Or just something to smile about.
So I want your favorite word. What word just makes you smile to read? Write? Say out loud? I want it.
Other faves of mine: beaver. I mean, come on. Say it. I dare you not to smile. Maybe your boss will be walking by and hear you say "beaver," and then the ensuing laughter. That would be hilarious.
Another word I like to use: pertinent. Makes me sound very scholarly, don't you think?
So lay it on me. Don't be shy. Favorite words--spill! Spill! (BTW, did you notice the em-dashes? Jeesh.)
