I’ve been thinking of words lately, just funny words or intriguing words. It started when I heard the word “nincompoop” recently. What an odd word, –but it evoked memories. This is a word that I learned when I was very young, but I didn’t hear it right. My brother and I thought it was “inkapoo,” and come to think of it, doesn’t that make about as much sense as nincompoop?
Another word that I think is funny is “shenanigans.” Not only does it sound funny, it means funny stuff. Today when I do my Hospice visit, we will work on a jigsaw puzzle of monkey shenanigans, –monkeys doing their funny stuff. It is a fun puzzle. Both of us have looked forward to working on this puzzle.
