01/24/2023 “Word Play”   Leave a comment

The snow has finally stopped here in Maine, and I just finished blowing my driveway clear for the fourth time since yesterday afternoon. I sure hope that we get a break before the next one hits. Maybe the next storm will hold off long enough for my bruised ass cheeks to heal. I’m crossing my fingers . . .

How about a little fun wordplay today. I’ve always loved palindromes and here are a few of my favorites:

NO LEMONS, NOMELON

STEP ON NO PETS

ED IS LOOPY POOLSIDE

MADAM, I’M ADAM

RATS LIVE ON NO EVIL STAR

How are you with tongue twisters? The rumor that women can say them better than men just might be true.

SAM SHAVED SEVEN SHY SHEEP

NAT’S KNAPSACK STRAP SNAPPED

A PROPER COPPER COFFEE POT

FRED’S FRIEND FRAN FLIPS FINE FLAPJACKS FAST

A SKUNK SAT ON A STUMP.

THE STUMP THUNK THE SKUNK STUNK

THE SKUNK THUNK THE STUMP STUNK

Here are a few words that have faded from use, and you’ll see why. Do you still use any of them or know someone who does?

BEES KNEES – “cool”.

BESOT – “give”

SHAN’T – “will not”

THITHER – “over there”

ZOUNDS – “surprise”

EWER – “water pitcher”

DAPPER – “fancy dresser”

If you want to have some fun, use a few of these words when speaking or texting your friends.
