Good word!

Bubblehead and I compliment each other for utilizing little-used words in our daily conversations. Not that we have exquisite vocabularies, but we have our moments.

It all started years back when we were driving from the Kitsap Peninsula around to Seattle. I paused to take in the scenery, and pointed out to him how gorgeous the hillsides were with the mix of evergreens and the changing colors of the deciduous trees.

"Deciduous?", he said to me in an incredulous tone.

"Yes, deciduous."

He was slightly stunned that I knew the word. I was extremely insulted that he was slightly stunned.

Doesn't everyone know the word deciduous? I learned it in middle school, I think.

So now every time one of us breaks out with a word you don't often hear in everyday conversation, the other follows it up with "Good word!"

Note to Bubblehead: Did you see that? Incredulous! When was the last time you heard that one around the water cooler? No, I didn't use the thesaurus! I know the word incredulous!

Yes, I had to look up the spelling. (blushing)

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
