It’s been a while since I’ve posted a word of the week, or anything actually, but hey, that’s life right!
So this word is really fun to say, it feels nice, I think its the use of the ‘th’ in it.
A plethora is a large quantity of something, like the shells in the background of the picture (see what I did there?!).
Instead if saying ‘there were loads of puppies’ you can now say ‘there were a plethora of puppies’. See how much fun that word is?!
It’s one of my favourites, so how will you use it this week?
See you soon….
I literally didn’t know there was a word for this, I have used sentences like ‘they look like they are sucking on a lemon’ or ‘they were so posh it looked painful’. No offence to posh people, you guys rock! This is such a great term to drop into conversation.
Mimp is to speak in a prissy manner, usually with pursed lips.
Pretty cool huh? I love listening to people mimp, it sounds so surreal!
Enjoy the word guys!
Oh! It’s a good one guys! It’s the sort of word that reminds me of olden times where the gentleman in the cravat turns to his fellow drunkard and remarks that this person cannot be trusted!
So what is it I hear you cry?
Say it aloud! Slyboots! If someone is slyboots they are sly or mischievous and generally speaking are to be dealt with accordingly.
What a wonderful word, this is definitely one to use down the pub among friends, a way to warn others of the slyboots in the corner!
Come across many slyboots on your travels this week folks?
See you soon….
Phew! It’s been a crazy one guys! I’m at a Girlguiding leader camp, it’s cool. I like a bit of learning. Plus, these ladies make awesome characters, combining their traits and quirks to make a new person is fun! Shhhh, don’t tell them I said that!
Anyway onto the new word before I’m, lynched!!
This is a great word! Its nice to say and it sounds cool. It’s when you entice or deceive someone by sweet talk or flattery. I think its a more sophisticated way of saying lip service. Sales people use this technique a lot, you cant help but respond to it. Being honeyfuggled is not something to be ashamed of, its part of human behaviour, I’ve fallen for it loads.
Here’s a story for you, my Mum and I went Christmas shopping a couple of years ago, its something of a tradition, we go every year. We were in a well known department store and there was a demonstration going on, the guy was captivating and engaging. He was prancing around the little area he had his stall in and he was a honeyfuggle expert. He must have said something nice to every member of the audience. Anyway, long story short, both me and my Mum spend a stupid amount of money on 2 hand whisks. That we didn’t need. That I will struggle to use. Because he made it sound like we needed them. And he liked my Mum’s teeth. The guy was brilliant!
So there you go, we all get honeyfuggled on occasion!
See you soon…..
Can you believe we have gone through 12 words already? That’s 3 months of new words guys, go us!
Todays word is so fun to say, keep saying it, say it 12 times in a row, say it until it sounds weird (Cue chuckling). So fun!
Snarf. Haha! It means to eat something greedily.
“I say old chap, you snarfed that down” – For when you are at high society dinners.
“Stop snarfing your food Jeff” – For when you are trying to control Jeff in public
“I loved it so much, I literally snarfed it down bro!” – When you are chilling with your friends
“Who snarfed the pizza?” – When someone eats the last piece of pizza you were saving.
See? It can be used in all situations, and it somehow makes things seem more dramatic and less gross. How would you use it? Give me an example? (Oh yeah, I’m asking questions now!!)
See you soon…
