Sometimes I make these lists on the note pad on my iPhone when I think of ideas for posts.
A week or two ago I began a list of words I really like. It all started when I was sitting at a stop light and I heard the word ‘thuggery” used on the radio. What a great word! I thought. I will make a list of words I like!
I began the list with ‘thuggery’ and a long time favorite ‘bizarre’.
All was going well until I looked at my list.
That list is messed up. What the hell is wrong with me?
I am not sure what a psychoanalyst would tell you about this list, but I can tell you this: it sure explains a lot about the guys I dated in high school.
Whatever my problem was, or more likely still is, I was feeling very ill at ease about my list.
So I fixed it.
See? Much better.
