Trying New Words on for Size

They say it takes 35 exposures to a word before it is "learned." You need to see it in various contexts in order to be able to incorporate it into your own lexicon.

Well, I saw two great new words today and even though I am 34 encounters short, I am going take a huge leap and use them right now.

The other night in bed, Joshy was chuntering as usual. The topic this time wasn't gender or death. It was "cuteness."

"Jordan is a little cute. But I am so cute," he said.

I had just ordered a book on Amazon about raising kids with good self-esteem. Guess I'll just bung that one right in the garbage when it comes.

Laura, how did I do?

I shudder to think that I might grumble the wrong words on this here blog about somebody’s bunghole and they’d get rong idea, so I ain’t gonna say nothing.

Paul, Ha! Thanks, Kelly. Can't be a Brit-wannabe without picking up some lingo now and then :)
