The Intelligent Discovery of Meanings, of Sorts.

So the other day, during a random net-surfing session, I ended up finding something useful and fun. It was basically a prompt that went like this:

The dictionary atop your shelf has more than 200,00 words defined. Why don’t you blow off some of the dust in it’s cover and randomly pick out 10 words? Don’t look at the meanings; just concentrate on the words. Write down your words on a blank sheet of paper. Now you’re going to have fun creating meanings for those words. What do the words make you think of? What do you think they should mean?

And that’s how this post came into existence.

First of, I did genuinely had to go to my shelf and pull out one of this clever thing:

2014-07-27
who knew? It was actually dusty.

 

Anyways, I decided to have a guest on board to join me in, in trying to create meanings. Perhaps for some extra fun and to liven this place a bit!

Hence on the 28th of July, 2014, Sister of mine debuts on ToW!

So without further ado, here’s how it ended up:

NOSH
1st word: NOSH

 

noshreal
Yeah okay, maybe I was wrong…

 

etch
2nd word: ETCH
etchfinal
I’ll play fair and accept that Sister was quite close and I was far, pretty far.
tandem
3rd word: TANDEM
tandemreal
hmm maybe I suck at this?
acumen
4th word: ACUMEN
acumenreal
HA! See how wrong Sister was? 🙂
czarina
5th word: CZARINA
czarinareal
“salad dressing” like REALLY?!
kcorrect
6th word: KLEPTOMANIA

Life Question: can you actually be obsessed with clips?

 

 

zenith
7th word: ZENITH
zenithreal
*Praise the Lord* LOOK! How sensibly, almost right I was?!
raggae
8th word: RAGGAE
raggaereal
“Afro” is my metaphor for Raggae. 50 points for creativity? Surely.
laconic
9th word: LACONIC
laconicreal
Nothing to see here folks; just another rightly defined word by sister.
galosh
10th word: GALOSH
galosreal
Headlines: Medal for “Yep-I-Suck-At-This-Game” awarded to Toto. The other Participant was found to be a little less humiliating.

 

Alright that was all of the fun! I hope you liked us trying out this nifty prompt because I sure enjoyed it. I know this was was a little different than the usual text-heavy posts.  Just tried to make this more eye appealing. I’d appreciate your comments and any sort of feedback (maybe even a Hi?).

Like honestly, it is so encouraging to know someone reads my newbie blog and hopefully will keep on reading 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and until next time, tata!

P.S. I’m adding a new category titled “Prompts” so you’ll be sure to see me trying out more of these brilliant things later too!
