Yep, here I go again. Just what I needed...or not.
Sometimes I read a word and I wonder...think... question...."Is that really a word"? ....I always look words up in the dictionary...either on-line or the by the old fashioned way, using an actual ink printed paper book I decided to blog about weird little words I come across...not all will be modern fact some will be from times past....didn't I just say that? about déjà vu.......but they will be or will have been real words from one time or another....So pop in once in a while, occasionally, or when you have a few minutes to spare and read what I have read and discovered and passed never know what I might conjure up.
