Soft afghans made just for me……fuzzy socks and cashmere shawls….a cuppa tea or Chai while lounging on my bed. All of these make the word COZY appear when I think of them.
It’s an old word, and not one that I have ever heard the teens next door use to describe something.
It’s a bit odd how certain words go in and out of the language….well, English in any case. The words that I used as a teen are not part of my vocabulary as an aging adult. I would no more say “groovy” now than I would wander down the street naked. “Cool and rock on” though are forever stuck in the phrases I use.
I love using words that make people stop and think about whatever it was I just said.
logorrhea that’s an excessive flow of words…my specialty!
ebullition a boiling over or excitation
querken to suffocate or to stifle
or my favorite oddball word: jackanape an impudent child.
I am thinking in another year or two, COZY will be added to my list of un-used words. I wonder what will take its place?
