“WORD” AWARDS

I prepared this Saturday and posted but something went wrong because it did not publish. It was too much fun to not try again although it is not Saturday. I know I posted because it went to my Facebook with an “oops” page not found.

Linda G. Hill has opened up the subject of words to us for SoCS, specifying words we don’t like, or favorite words, or just words that bug us.  Plenty of choice, so here I go!

I’m from the generation who was shocked when Clark Gabel said “damn” in Gone With the Wind.   From there we have hit the low of literary lunacy.

Some particular “word” awards:

The Peevish Award:  “whauu-tever” for the one who goes along to get along (whatever)

The Illiteracy Award:   the f-word for limited vocabulary ability

The “Failed Grammar” Award: “f-word” used as every part of speech

The Sinners Award:  for those who use the Creator’s name in disrespect

The Western Award:  “dang” like in “that dang horse bucked me off”

The Newsbreaker Award:  Using  “race” “racist” “racism” in thirteen 1-minute segments

The  Best Creative Word Award:  “white supremacy”

The “Don’t Bug Me” Award:  Why should I tell you “Whatsup?

The “Trite Phrase” Award:  “at the end of the day”

Well, Folks, I’m dang near out of Awards so “at the end of the day” “when all is said and done” and we are now “on the same page” I’m going to see “whatsup” with my family.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    I agree especially about the limited vocabulary award. So many awards are given for this. It doesn’t take a genius to fill dialogue with this and a few insignificant words. Thanks for the morning chuckles.

  2. I have often suggested a new dictionary to those who win that limited vocabulary award. They never seem to purchase one though….unfortunately.

      I sometimes think of the joy the first dictionary must have been to students. Like computers now days. Both take too much effort to really learn from once the new wears off.
