Word Up! My Three Favorite Words

As a writer, and general all around exuberant lover of speech, I love words. However not all words are created equal. There are just some words that make me go ‘huzzah!’ and I look forward to those perfect moments of worded bliss when I can use them.

Word: BOOM—> This is quite possibly my favorite way to end a phrase of all time. It adds emphasis, hilarity, and a sensible dash ofΒ  pride filled with a slight bit of outlandishness.

Example: I just got a $100 blazer for $7.49. BOOM.

See what I mean? EMPHASIS AND PRIDE. And yes, I really did get that blazer for $7.49.

Word: Savvy—> This is my favorite word in the English language. Every time I use, I feel like I become a little more savvy. Like I have a little bit more wherewithal and credit. Savvy makes common sense sound cool.

Example: She has some serious shopping savvy, keep her around.

I’d keep that sister around too, with her shopping prowess and whatnot.

Word: Egregious—> I like this word because it can mean two totally opposite things based on the context. This word always needs a back story, a bit of baggage if you will, to get its full effect. It shows off that you can have baggage and still be awesome.

Example: These decorations are too much, they’re just egregious.

OR

The final speaker was surprisingly egregious. (In that case, call this speaker ASAP because the next event I go to needs this guy so I don’t crumple as a result of being severely underwhelmed.)

What words get you jazzed? Oh yeah, that’s another word I live (and love) to use. Jazzed–it makes me feel all types of fancy and super cool.

  2. The trouble with BOOM is that Piers Morgan has appropriated it for his annoying Twitter account. I like most words that can be stretched and over-articulated, so egregious is good.
