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.
I wanted to share my newfound love for words, with my family and friends, so I started to incorporate the new words in my everyday conversations, and I called it my ”word of the day”. Sometimes I used the words totally wrong, and a lot of fun came out of it. People were both laughing with me and -at me.
My idea now, is to write an entry each week, where I’ll present my ”weekly words”. The entries can be about the most inspiring, funniest or weirdest words or expressions that I’ve come across during that week.
