Still scowling into my coffee this morning, I flipped open the laptop to read my email. And there was that word, leaping from the screen:
Big. Bright blue. A live link. I almost spewed coffee all over the keyboard. So damn funny! At that moment I didn’t know or care what the post was about. The title alone was brilliant. Whatever the author was going through, I sympathized. Was it awful, frustrating, funny? Didn’t matter. That word is abso-fuckin-lutely brilliant. Its humor takes the sting off, defuses the situation, but still includes that very satisfying expletive. Best of all, it takes a few seconds to get your brain in gear and say it. It’s almost equivalent to taking a deep breath and counting to ten before doing something rash. And it’s fun to say! Supercalifragilisticexpiali-fuck-it. Supercalifragilisticexpiali-fuck-it. Supercalifragilisticexpiali-fuck-it. You could almost write a song about it. Oh, wait …
Anyway, this brilliantly unforgettable neologism was coined by the wuc, an Aussie blogger. I can’t imagine what other gems must lurk on her blog just waiting to be discovered, but I bow to her brilliance.
Thanks, wuc, for making my day!
When trying to express oneself, it’s frankly quite absurd,
To leaf through lengthy lexicons to find the perfect word.
A little spontaneity keeps conversation keen,
You need to find a way to say, precisely what you mean…
