I’m fond of playing with words. In fact, one of my superpowers is being able to speak any language (the other is breathing underwater).
For example, with a friend I made up the word, “Lunatism”, which is as it sounds.
Today, a good friend I’ve made on the bus had a slip of the tongue and created one of these words by accident: “Clumbersome” = Clumsy + cumbersome. Brilliant! It was imperative I get this word into my cell phone as quickly as possible, as I usually do to bring stories to life here for you, dear
readers reader, so I wouldn’t forget.
This word is pure gold! So I’m going to take this word and run with it. Here goes:
“That idea you just had was clumbersome.”
“The tired cat was so clumbersome when it fell off the fence it landed on its back.”
“I feel clumbersome when I try to get off the bus before it comes to a complete stop; as if I’m on a tiny ship being tossed about.”
There. I feel so much better now. And much less clumbersome.
