When I was in middle school, my Norwegian teacher advised me to read more novels, over the summer, to expand my vocabulary. Good girl as I am, I read 23 books that particular summer. All the reading made me fond of the weirdest words and expressions.
When I started up the blog, one of my ideas was to write one post about interesting words, “Weekly words”, per week. Having to write to a (selfmade) deadline, turned out to be harder than I thought. And it isn’t because I don’t come across enough funny-, bizarre- or inspiring words. It is because of my poor health. And the last thing that I need, when I’m trying to get better, is satisfying my inner perfectionist, with continuing on with this column, just for the sake of it. After all, Miss Perfectionist has lots of other things keeping her busy.
