What, Words Again!

“Be careful of the words you say,
Keep them short and sweet.
You never know, from day to day,
Which ones you’ll have to eat.”

Following my last foray into the blogosphere and the subject of words, I looked back on the many other posts I have written on this subject.  One in particular caught my eye and so I would like to reblog it here.  

But before you go over to read the full post, may I ask you “Are you a cruciverbalist?”  I am.  I always thought this was a designer of crossword puzzles but now I understand ( after looking it up on Google) that it can also apply to an enthusiast of word games and of crossword puzzles.

Well, obviously, I am an enthusiast.  I do the NY Times Wordle every day and was most upset once when it took me to number 6 before I got the answer.  And I just love whoever is behind this game now – “Phew!” appeared when I managed the correct answer.

I then found another app that allows me to play the game for as long as I choose.  Not limited to only one game a day.  I’m becoming addicted.

Of course I continue to play Upwords with my housebound friend each week. And last week I was introduced to Quiddler. That one certainly tests the brain.

So here is the link to the earlier post.

I make no excuses for subsequent posts on the same subject.  Oh there are more in this ancient, whirring around brain. So Watch this space!

difficult words but rather short,
easy words like, ‘What about lunch?’”

      1. I am fine, especially since we finally saw the sun today after almost 3 weeks! I had almost forgotten what it looked like. Very rare here. Sending hugs your way!
