I’m sailing away, OK! #62

Some words I love, but don’t use that often –

Torpid (lazy) – It sounds exactly like what it means. To say the word is to feel overcome with a heavy tongue that slams out the last syllable.

Sneer (scornful facial expression)- It conjures images of Snidely Whiplash.

Hokey (corny) – A hold out word from my mother and childhood that shoudn’t be lost to modern taste.
