A second dose of some of my favorite words, this list features a “q” word, an “x” word and an Alka-Seltzer reference:
Autumnal– A serious, brooding word, it’s perfect for this time of year. The m-n combination is also really fun to write.
Loquacious– When “talkative” or “wordy” just won’t do, use this word instead!
Effervescent– Someone once told me I had an effervescent personality. I think it’s the best compliment I’ve ever received. Unfortunately, this word also makes me think of Alka-Seltzer.
Flummoxed– I use this word in everyday conversation more than you’d think. It’s just perfect, so much better than “confused” or “flustered.”
Nihilist– I usually see this word as a descriptor for punk bands, mostly British. Appropriately, you kinda have to scowl when saying it.
