Nothing enthralls me like...

...the power of the printed word. Unlike the mighty sword, words can amuse and educate. They touch our souls and break our hearts. They encourage and scathe us. They bolster our confidence and humble us. They give us perspective and allow us to see through another's eyes. They can reach into the darkest corners of our minds. They hold an endless fascination for me.

During some recent conversations I have been challenged to recall words that are simply fun to say and to use. Here is a partial list: rapscallion, hobgoblin, doppelganger, lollygagging, lackadaisical, loquacious, superfluous.

Roll one off your tongue today.
