As it is nearly Easter, it would have been so handy to have chosen that word for my Blogging from A-Z Challenge post. However, there is a much better word that I think suits me perfectly.
Let me present to you my word, eccentric. This word is the mad professor, blowing up things in his shed as he perfects his inventions; the crazy old girl who trots about in multi-coloured clothes and unruly hair, who has about 100 cats!
What about the elderly gent that still likes to wear a top hat and tails whilst doing his weekly shopping? Maybe he lives next door to a rosy-cheeked grandma that has a load of dollies that she treats as her children, dressing them up and holding tea parties for them.
It is peculiar in its nuttiness, unconventional and odd. It is what I aspire to be when I get old.
Yes, eccentric seems to be mainly applied to the ‘more mature’ person. Presumably. it takes time to perfect the art.
I am working on it!
