more than words.

I sit on a chair. I do nothing. I get bored. And I decide to grab a dictionary. I look out for words I've never heard of before that means something out of this world from each letter of the alphabet, A to Z. That's what I do for fun. Or at least, something I do to fill in my time. I feel like talking about words today. (Hihi)

I like words. Whatever kind. Simple, hard, difficult to spell, bombastic, excruciating, words that don't exist in the dictionary, literary words, harsh words. Anything will do.
I like words that are deep. That can tell something more than anything. I like words that can make up a short and sweet sentence. For example, I love you, I miss you, I hate you, You are fat, you are cool, you look beautiful. I hate words that mean nothing. You know that shit you talk when you don't mean a thing, The shit; yeah that's what I meant.
I like to look beyond the words. To see if they mean anything else. To see if they mean something bad rather than something good, something good rather than something bad, or don't even mean anything at all.
I'm no smarty pants, goody two shoes, baby genius or whatever. I don't always use words from the dictionary in my essays, or literary words in my poems. These days, songwriters don't even use proper vocabulary, verbs and so on to write a song.
Sometimes, well most of the time really, words make people happy too. It sure does :)

So open up a dictionary. Pick out a word. Use it.
