I've had a few favorite words over the years.
I think my first favorite word was "bum", I can't remember but I'm guessing it was mostly based on the meaning. My older brother taught me how to write it, I must have been about 4 and I wrote it all over our house and our neighbors house in permanent marker. 20 years later I went back to visit the house, and it was still on the insides of cupboards and things like that
then a couple of years later I liked "turquoise". I just liked the sound of the word, so I always used the turquoise crayons whenever colouring anything.
Then years later at high-school I liked the word "nipple". There was something particularly humorous about it. We had a whole genre of jokes revolving around the word. Not least of which was taking famous film names, and replacing one word with the word "nipple". eg "nipple on elm street", or "rebel without a nipple"
I always liked "shenanigans" too. My parents always told me "now don't get up to any "shenanigans" whilst we're out". But I never knew what the definition of the word is, so I never knew if I was getting up to them or not!
Nincompoop is a great one too.
And even as an adult I like playing with words. Usually either saying them backwards, or spoonerisms or. Some words are just part of my normal vocabulary these days, and I often use them forgetting that they won't be understood, for example in context:
- I'm hungry, lets get some doof
- there's not enough beds, so bring your beeping slag.
- Im going to catch a sub into town
I would love the bass, I've always wanted a mustang, but I think perhaps you should give it to someone else since I'm already a pro bass player, so my post above is just out of interest.
