It's a new year, and I am announcing a new occasional blog series at My Feet Only Walk Forward. In addition to Interviews, Everyday Heroes, the Political One Liner of the Week Award, Reviews, and the One Liner of the Week Award, I am adding Word of the Day.
Now and again, I will make up a word or overhear a word that is just too good to pass up. Sometimes it is an everyday word used cleverly and sometimes it is a word that with a subtle shift in pronunciation changes it from Jessica into Jem (truly outrageous!).
Synergy! Sorry...I was momentarily caught in a 1980s cartoon vortex. We now return you to your occasionally scheduled program: Word of the Day.
Last night, I was asleep having dreams of God knows what (and elephants). I can't remember what the hell they were doing or why I was dreaming about them but the elephants were there...and they were up to something. Just as I was dreaming about these elephants, back in the real world (Shakespeare Sister anyone?) David poked me.
That is when, in my dream, at the same time, an elephant also poked me with his trunk. So it makes complete sense that I would yell, out loud, in my sleep: SNUFFLESNOUT!!!
I woke myself with that miraculous word. David asked me what I had just said, and I said it again. Snufflesnout. And I meant it. It was the most logical thing to say. Snufflesnout. Of course.
The sound of the word was so absolutely ridiculous that I started laughing uncontrollably.
I was pretty sure that I was going to puke if I laughed any harder, and then David went right ahead and said the damn word again out loud. I fell over on my side with my head in the pillow trying to catch my breath. I even tried whispering the word, snufflesnout, just to see what would happen, and I almost met my end choking to death from laughter.
And that, is why I submit to you, the first ever My Feet Only Walk Forward Word of the Day: Snufflesnout.
