Oojamaflip

Oojamaflip: a wonderful word to capture a state of mind I find myself in all too often lately. For one who thrives on words, struggling to remember the name of a thing should cause great frustration. Except that it has become a constant game of Charades; everyone joins in and enjoys laughs in the process.  Once again, laughter trumps grumpies!

After all, a rose by any other name would still smell as sweet;  in my case, a Frangipani, my photographic contribution’s to Debbie’s One Word Sunday. Thanks Debbie, for a new word under my belt with which I can use to refer to all sort of good things whose names I have temporarily lost!

  1. I loved the word, the photograph, your thoughts, and learning that you have a wonderful family and friends who play charades and laugh with you when you can’t remember the name of something.
