The mind goes in funny ways. Like this morning I got to thinking about the word 'fireplace'. It used to be just another word in my extended vocabulary. Until 1981. To many of you that was before civilization as you know it began. To me it was just like last year. Anyway, Sam and I were language school in Campinas, Brazil. Sound impressive? it would be, but it was all just a normal place with normal people, albeit somewhat exotic. Anyway, one of the teachers at the language school, Dona Betty, would talk about the word 'fireplace' and how she thought that was the prettiest word in the English language. She would say it slowly, then fast, and just smile, and then ask, "Don't you think it is a beautiful word?" We would roll our eyes, then agree.
This begs the question: What word -or term-do YOU think is beautiful? Now, of course, the meaning of the word might affect you, but try and not let it. Leave your answer as a comment, okay? I'll go first.
(Stop rolling those eyes!!)
