Keep your Fridays funky and fresh…and nerd out with your word out. ;D
This week’s word — murmur — just tickles me pink. It makes me think of slumber parties and crushes, of that feeling that there’s something bigger and more exciting than yourself out there, just waiting to be heard, smelled, tasted. And as usual for The Word Wizard, thinking about what it sounds-like, and whispering it to yourself, helps all the more to feel its meaning.
murmur: 1. (v.) “to say something in a low, soft, or indistinct voice. 2. (n.) a soft, [whispering] sound made by a person or group of people speaking quietly or at a distance.”
Something’s definitely in the air this year. I wonder what it means…
