I try to be educational here (insert laugh here). I love words, some more than others. Hopefully, you read my post about the power of our words. You could probably tell how much I value words. So I have decided that on every Wednesday I'm going to share a word I love and a word I hate. I will share why I love/hate those words. My reasoning probably won't make much sense, but at least you'll get a good laugh! Here goes!
I love the word Exasperate. It sounds cool and it's fun to say. It's also a really "smart" way to say you are irritated. I've never used the botany definition though. I might have to try that.
–verb (used with object)
to irritate or provoke to a high degree; annoy extremely: Hewas exasperated by the senseless delays.
Archaic . to increase the intensity or violence of (disease,pain, feelings, etc.).
Botany . rough; covered with hard, projecting points, as a leaf.
I hate the word Facetious. It just sounds stupid and the word is kinda pointless. Why say something if I'm not supposed to take it seriously? Why not just say you're joking? It's pretty snobby to me.
not meant to be taken seriously or literally: a facetious remark.
lacking serious intent; concerned with somethingnonessential, amusing, or frivolous: a facetious person.
So there you have a word I love and a word I hate. I don't know what's up with my indents, but I couldn't fix it. I'm exasperated by the indentation issue. Ha Ha!
Have a great day everyone!!
