S Stands For...

silly. Webster says that the definition of silly is this- foolish:lacking common sense. Say what?? But I write silly. I am silly. Silly is fun. So he's insinuating that my writing is foolish?? *hangs head* A long time ago silly meant blessed. I think I like that better. Why the change? The transformation began with "blessed" becoming "pious." This led on via "innocent, harmless," "pitiable," and "feeble" to "feeble in mind, foolish." The related Germanselig retains its original meaning "happy, blessed." Egad. I just want my writing to be fun for everyone who reads it. So the next time you stop by, just remember I'm having a great time being silly. For more A to Z click on my flashy alphabet box. It is so cool. Happy weekend. Monday will be brought to you by the letter T. Only seven more to go. :-) This post told me it would publish on this day 1:00AM. It did not save as a draft. I went back this morning when I realized it hadn't posted and YUP, you guessed it. A draft. Grr. *grumble* This has happened about ten other times! *sob* I'm good to you blogger. Why be mean to me??

  1. A long time ago the word nice meant someone who was stupid and ignorant. Isn't the English wonderful?

    Go ahead, be as silly as you want. The world needs silly.

  2. I'm thinking Blogger is protesting A-Z and over a 1000 posts daily, along with all the other normal blog posts.

    I like being silly, at times. It keeps life fun. :-)

  4. When I was young, my mom would tell me to stop being so silly. As an adult, I love being silly. I encouraged my kids to be silly. Great S word!

  9. Silly is a much nicer word for blogger's recent antics than the one I'm using.

  10. My favorite persons in the whole wide world are my girls, 5 and 7, and they are so silly! They make me laugh and feel better. My life is brighter because of them. So yeah, silly's good for me. =)

  11. When I was young mom would constantly scold me for being silly. Sometimes silly can be fun.
