Just Words

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.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
