Hey there folks, you know we all like words that are obscure? We wouldn’t all be taking up this little corner of the internet if were didn’t right? Well this one is a doozy! I love to find out that weird things have actual words for them, it makes me smile quite a lot, so I’m passing that smile on to you guys with this one………

An aglet is that little bit of plastic at the end of a shoelace! Mind blown right? Who even knew that had a name? Amazing! Next time one of those pesky little things comes off you can announce in a loud voice that you have just broken your aglet and see how many people think you have broken some obscure bone in your hand or something?!

Why is it so comforting to find things that have names that you didn’t know had names before? It just is though. Am I right?

Go and check your aglets, they might be missing and you need to tell someone stat!!

See you soon word lovers.……..

Word of the week (9)

Hey you guyyyyyyyys! (Bonus points for those who said it in a Goonies kind of way!)

Did you encounter any crapehangers this week? I see a few regularly, well that’s not actually true, I try not to see some regularly!!!

Onwards and upwards my friends. This word is great, it sounds as dramatic as it means, I mean, double V in a word, bold, I love it!

Shivviness is actually nothing to do with prison (shiv, prison weapon, see where I was going with that?), no, its way more mainstream than that. It’s the uncomfortable feeling you get when you wear new underwear! Amazing! Who knew there was a word for this?! I feel the need to get some underwear now just so I can create an opportunity to use it.

I urge you to go and get some new pants, wear them and complain about their shivviness to anyone who will listen!

See you soon………..

Crapehanger, someone who always sees the gloomy side of life. Think Eeyore, he was a total crapehanger, but everyone still loved him! It’s another way of saying someone is a pessimist.

So there you go, another word to add to your vocabulary!

See you soon gang!
