I mentioned in an earlier post that I love words. Back in the day before paper dictionaries went by the wayside like the dinosaurs, I would pull mine out at the drop of a hat to look up a word I didn’t know, or to confirm I used a word properly. It never failed to delight, for example, when I used “curmudgeon” correctly to describe a surly person. I still look words up just as often – it is much faster now thanks to Mr. Google.

The link below takes to you 100 mellifluous (beautiful) words and I plan to work each one into sentences in my future blog posts with insouciance (blithe nonchalance). Phew, two down . . .
