So I was sitting around last night trying to figure out what I was going to say today. All I could think about was how badly my knees hurt and legs throbbed. I ran most of the 3.52 miles I accomplished and was in a tad bit of pain. Tylenol, where’s the Tylenol? And then I got to saying Tylenol so much that it started sounding absolutely ridiculous! You know how that works; you repeat a word over and over until you get to the point of slowly saying it, drawing out each vowel and syllable. By the time you’re done with your little escapade, you have completely ruined the word till you no longer recognize it.
And that led me to saying a few more absurd words and then this led me to thinking about words in general. And the dialogue that takes place all around me.
Words can hurt. They can comfort. They bully. Manipulate. Strengthen. Sooth. Make you feel loved. Sometimes hated. Encouraged. Empowered. Smart. Stupid. Sometimes a conversation needs to be dumbed-down. Sometimes we need a translator. We can regret them. Take them back. Apologize for them. They start arguments. Start wars. Bring peace. Make someone smile. Or cry. And often make us laugh. They can be politically correct. Opinionated. Ignorant.
Strange to think that such tiny things can do so much and make a great writing piece, poem, novel, etc. Words are pretty powerful. 26 letters really makes some fascinating things happen, don't you think?!
Fascinating… yeah it sounds bizarre now!
