This week: Seven Funny Words… no apparent reason.
Glossolalia (speaking in tongues)
Uvula (the hangy-ball at the back of your throat)
Conjunctivitis (pinkeye – I know, it makes my eyes itch to hear it, too, but it sounds like it should mean “with junk.”)
Pandemonium (a wild uproar, chaos, or as it sounds, a poor cuddly panda who’s moaning for some reason)
Orange (The fruit or the color. Nothing rhymes with orange!)
Brunch (The half-breakfast, half-lunch meal. Have you ever tried to make a word from lunch and dinner or supper? What would it be – linner, lupper, lunper?)
Laugh (What other word is there where “gh” sounds like an f. Isn’t it perfect that the word for the sound you make when something is funny is a funny word itself?)
Okay, enough of this nonsense. Have a lovely and blessed weekend!
