Words

There are lots of words I love.

There are a few I really hate. "Drizzle" is one of them. The prevalance of the word "drizzle" makes me want to cook less.

I don't like the word "trunks" either. Because in and of itself, it is almost without meaning - except that it specifically is used (by itself) to refer to swimming trunks. But it can also mean other things - the plural of the stems of trees, for instance. Or torsos. And I just hate the way it sounds. "Trunks trunks trunks trunks". I thought about that, the other night when I wasn't sleeping but should have been. And I thought of the word "trunks" so much that it lost meaning for me. Like, I had to carefully think through what it actually meant, or if it was just a funny sound in my head that had no particular meaning.

This is also yet another reason to hate "Dragonball Z" - which I certainly do.

An apotheosis of words I hate would be the compound Drizzletrunks, which I believe I shall know use to refer to people that I don't like. I will call them, "Skippy McDrizzletrunks" or "Thelonious Q. Drizzletrunks" or "Shadbush Thadwell Drizzletrunks" ... you get the idea.

As often as the world inside my head is very entertaining, you can now plainly see that it can also be a bedevilment.
