Wacky Word Wednesday #20 — September 23, 2015

Wacky Word Wednesday #20

This is week 20 of my Wacky Wordy Wednesday feature where I have fun with a word that is weird, wonderful or just plain wacky! It is always a pleasure hunting down words that I think people will like; either because they are unfamiliar to them, or as a blast from the past that brings back memories along with a smile.

Today I have found a word that I love the sound of. This is true of many of the words that I choose. I can burst out laughing when I hear a word like this, this isn’t meant to be funny, but just has that comedic ring to it, (I know, I am odd)! So here is my offering today.

Boffin. This is the expert, the geeky bod with his head in a science book.  A mad professor, wild haired and wild-eyed, cooking  up potions in his laboratory, or inventing gadgets like the top of an egg chopper-off-er, or other eccentricities.

Wherever there are sheds filled with assorted odds and ends that nobody wants, there will be a brain-bonce poring over blueprints and strange looking diagrams, cobbling together all manner of ‘handy’ household items! Sometimes, they even work!

Episode 407: Wacky Word Wednesday #9

I am in the mood for another wacky, weird or wonderful word, and seeing as it is Wednesday, I’m in luck as I can get to resurrect one that is not used often enough. Today’s offering, sounds very old-fashioned and rather lofty, but I love it.

Flabbergast. This word amazes and dazes, confounds and dumbfounds. It’s a ‘you could have knocked me down with at feather’ type of word; shock and surprise follows it wherever it goes. In fact in can be strong enough to startle or stun the unsuspecting.

It is news that can appal and enthrall, as well as overawe, being both frightful and delightful.  Hmmm, that sounds a bit like me, depending what mood I am in!

Episode 366: Wacky Word Wednesday #5

Woohoo it’s Wednesday and time for me to have some fun with a word that I like the sound of! Well, as I am feeling a bit frisky today, I have chosen a word that is very playful. Let’s have some fun with…..

Tantalizing. This word is a tease; tormenting and tempting, provoking promises of delicious delights that may or may not be forthcoming. It can arouse and awaken, entice and excite. badger and beguile until you are begging for more!

It is enthralling and captivating, creating dizzying desire that needs to be sated, in a satisfying seduction!
