i do like words.
i like the sound of words, i love to hear new words
and new names and i love to repeat them over and over
and listen to how they sound.
i get a lotta opportunity for this when i sit and listen
to bob and the guys talk.
first of all, they talk guy stuff.
i always smile when they say 'torque' cause i love that
word and i never can think of any reason to say it.
and they actually say it a lot.
it's a great word.
and i'd really like some opportunity to use it and mean it.
and have no one know that i've never said it in a real
life sentence before. i mean, i'd want to sound smooooooth
with it, ya know? like they do.
last nite, a whole buncha things i never heard of came
up in conversation. bob had something goin' on with work
and in his telling us about it, a whole buncha really cool
words came out.
my complete and total favorite - well, besides the name
was zulu time.
apparently greenwich mean time is also called zulu time???
no one knew why when i asked......
say it out loud......ZULU TIME.........
but they go by z-time.
is that cool or what???
and then there's the whole figurin' out what time that means.
i'm still workin' on that.
but apparently, if you work with people around the world,
you talk in z-time.
did you guys know this???
i soooo want to talk in z time.
so i told the guys.....'hey!we can set up our business meetings
in zulu time!!'
i personally like zulu more than z.
but you know, they both really have their place.
so i want to use both.
i sat on the couch repeating cool words and intrigued with the
way 'zulu time' makes your mouth feel exotic.
i have trouble retaining what 'torque' is let alone throwin'
it in the conversation. i never even realized there WAS a
thule, greenland.....there's so so so much cool conversation
out there and i just don't talk that way.
i commented on this to the guys.
yeah, the guys agreed, but they looked at me and said
'none of us say we want to be a prayer.'
oh yeah, i said.
that's cool talk too.
maybe we can all travel to thule, greenland on zulu time and
be a prayer....maybe all that energy would torque the earth
i so love words....
