My favorite word when I can’t remember the proper word or name for something is ‘thingy’. You know, that ‘thingy’ we saw blah blah blah. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

That’s why I’m so looking forward to the Rapture and the Bema Seat. I’m looking forward to hearing every one of those stories and knowing my fellow believers on a deeper level than anything possible on this earth.

I love this post, by the way. I love words myself. I usually do a crossword puzzle everyday because it exposes me to words I’ve never seen before.

I had linguistics in the seventh grade. I think I was the only one that liked that class. You reminded me of how much I love words that express SO much…. more. Thank you very much!!!:heart::heart:

This destitute old woman is devoid of understanding in trying to figure out exactly what it is you are trying to say here @FoxMan. I am bereft of understanding and I think you have obfuscated the matter. Therefore I will purloin the whole matter until you explain yourself. Perhaps I should just forfeit the whole idea.
