Oooh, yes, both excellent.

Cotillion. But I love typing "another."

Ponchartrain, honorificabilitudinatatibus, onomatapoeia, perpendicular . . .

And there is the genre of child speak to which I am now happily acquainted: "scooty," "poop," "woops" (my four year old's version of "loops"), "brefkast," "Why-ee" (the 16 month old's attempts at his brother's name) . . . .

By the way impervious and cotillion - both excellent! Can we use words from another language? Because I love la mantaquilla de cacahuate. (Peanut butter in Spanish.)

Oh, if only I could show signs on here! There are signs for the English words organized, really smart, soda pop, and confused.

In French, I like pommes-frîtes (french fries), quoi que (whatever), aujourd'hui (today), and so many more, I just can't think of them.

Crisp.

Onomatapoeia is a great one, JEB!

Well, I wrote it down and then realized that what it means is kind of why I like the words I picked.

Okay Jeb, I don't know what most of those words are. But onomatapoeia--that's a beaut.

Viscocity, ooh yes. Just rolls off the tongue.

Cotillion! Gorgeous. What does it mean, again?

Clearly you are not a fan of The OC - Season 1, Girlfriday. Otherwise you would undoubtedly know what it means.

Nana, is that you? Are you really official now? Or is there someone else out there whose list of favorite words includes "humbuddy eesta geesta"?

...and in that same vein, "cabooshkas!" is a great word.

Didn't you teach Audrey to say that word?

Sure did. I like to think that word and the song "Happy Baby Boy/Girl" will be my mother's legacy that will live itself through the children I babysit.

I don't think I saw 'serendipity' anywhere on this long list...

another favorite word of mine is: shalom

What a fun thread to read and play along with... thanks!

Serendipity IS fun to say. Can't believe I didn't mention soliloquy, moms. Nice one.
