date

It’s a date. Plump, sweet dates taste delicious. A date with destiny? never had one. Make a date to do what you promised someone you’d do. Today’s date? No idea.

scale

Scale back. How big? What’s the scale? Why do fish have scales? Have you got on the scales lately? Why don’t greengrocers and supermarkets have scales for you to weigh your fruit and vegies?

easygoing

Easygoing or weak? Your viewpoints change with experience. Better to have an easygoing boss than a hardgoing one. Easy or hard. Take your pick. I know which one i’d choose.

pines

What pines? Dogs. People who’ve lost loved ones.Or, ‘You’ll find his house just past the pines.’ Birds avoid pine trees. Not much grows underneath pines, except mushrooms.

aboard

All aboard. No idea where we’re going. Let’s enjoy the trip. Wander dusty backblocks of the mind. Travel broadens the mind and empties the wallet. No money means no trips abroad. Narrow mind.

lunacy

A full moon affects lunatics. Full-moon lunacy isn’t a fallacy. Psychiatric statistics show higher than normal admissions to psychiatric clinics during a full moon.

festive

Feeling festive? Drink, eat and be merry. Who knows what’ll happen to you tomorrow. Don’t fester over feeling festive or not. Festival time can be anytime you like.

distilled

Distilled whiskey. Distilled thoughts. Distilled stories. ‘Dis still here.’ Distilled thoughts come to you too late. After an argument. After you’ve decided. Always after and rarely before you decide.

mothering

Mothering smothering. Mothering: not a word but a sentence. Poor mothering’s a death sentence. Good mothering helps prepare you for life. Mothering’s one of the most important jobs in the world. But you don’t need any qualifications to be a mother.

crib

Crib can be a verb or a noun. Verb: meaning don’t ‘shut in’. Noun: the sailor returned to his ‘crib’. A short word but one you don’t see often.

biblical

Biblical proportions. Huge floods. Famines. Plagues. Death. Wars. Any disaster during times covered by the bible attract such descriptions.

tousled

Run your hands through your hair to give it a tousled look. Leave your bed unmade to give it a tousled look. Tousled sounds French – like Toulouse. You don’t hear or read the word much. Seems to have a strong connection with the way peopel describe hairstyle.

piano

Piano man, don’t sing me that song. I hate it. In fact there aren’t many piano songs I like. How many elephants died so poachers could sell their ivory tusks to piano makers? Poachers kill elephants today for their ivory.

hell

Hell, it’ll be hot this summer. Where’s hell on earth? A place of suffering, torment, misery. Hell can be anywhere. It may be nothing more than a state of mind or physical torment. Like, heaven, it’s hard to describe hell. More so if you’ve never experienced it.

measure

You can measure someone or have their measure. A measure of goodwill. How do you measure happiness? Pain? Disappointment? Loneliness? Poverty? Wealth? Measure has many different meanings. English can be a devilishly hard language to learn.

versatile

Clothes are versatile. Spring, summer, autumn and winter clothes.Most things that come to mind are versatile. Even basics like food and water. Each thing in life has many uses. Some people call those uses versatile.

drought

Drought of ideas. Drought of water. Drought of generosity. Drought of goodwill. Look around and you’ll always find a drought. But when it doesn’t rain, it pours. Be careful what you look for.

senator

Senator. Greeks. Old sand and sandal movies. Corrupt politicians. Incompetence. Give me strength to change the things I can change and wisdom to accept the things I cannot change. Can’t think of a famous senator, living or dead..

overjoyed

Happy to be overjoyed? Of course. Doesn’t happen often enough. Card writers use the word. People who aren’t overjoyed use it. People who’re just happy use it. Enjoy being in a state of joy.

seldom

Patience: often found in a man, seldom in a woman. Seldom: that’s how often I’d say that in today’s workplace. Seldom do we hear people speak their minds. Private or public, you don’t hear much straight talk. Seldom, if at all.

rebound

Don’t marry on the rebound. Wny not? Nothing wrong with a bounce. Rebound with a smile. Stockmarkets rebound. Shareholders hope for a rebound after a fall. Rebounds often follow falls. Not always.

reconstruction

Rebuild sounds better. Reconstruction sounds bureaucratic. Abstract. Souless. Rebuild sounds like a new start. Fresh work. New for old or shattered. Short words tell you what you want to know. Big words? Hide meaning and waste your time.

timid

Timid. That’s what we all feel sometimes. Someone. Something. Animals. Snakes. Spiders. Rough seas. Hurricanes. Tsumais. Floods. Armed psycopaths. Facing something or someone who can control your life can make you feel timid.

prisoner

Take no prisoners. We’re prisoners of our own decisions. Prisoners of lifestyle. Prisoners of ill-health. Prisoners of mental disease. Trapped in our worlds and circumstances. Freedom. Free to choose. Free to speak your mind.

complexity

Complexity equals government jargon. Legalese. Unecessary obfuscation. Nuclear scheamtics look complex to the untrained eye. Life’s complex. Nothing’s black and white. Grey bits are complex. Life’s complex. How we yearn for simplicity – but simplcity’s hard to do. Don’t believe me? Try it some time.

bluegrass

Bluegrass music? Knowing nothing of American music, I’m clueless about this word. Blue tooth, yes. Do sad songs turn grass blue? Bluesy blue. Balsy blue. Blue-green algae. Blue, my ass.

aura

Tell Laura I love her aura. Some people claim to see other people’s auras. Some politicians have an aura about them. A magnetic personality. You can dismiss or believe something you can’t see. An aura being but one example.
