I have reached my 10th W4W! Yay!
I hope you are all enjoying the meme and continue to join in.
Check out the rules here
This week’s word is…
I suffer from insomnia quite frequently. I have done since my teens.
Sometimes I get out of bed and make a drink, watch tv, read or surf the net. Other times I lie there, like a sack of potatoes, thinking and analysing and day (night) dreaming.
I had a very bad incidence on Monday night.
I went to bed at around 9.30, read until after 11 and turned off my light… Aaaaaaaaand lay there.
I was awake the entire night, cuddling my dog Poppy and letting my mind run free.
During the course of the night I came up with a word for my W4W. I thought it was a wonderful word! Perfect!
I remember thinking how I would approach writing my post, the points I wanted to make, the examples I wanted to use…
Trouble is I cannot for the life of me remember the word itself!
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
I am left wondering whether, in my sleep deprived state, I created a word that actually doesn’t exist.
I think it was some sort of synonym for being on the edge, poised, perched… I am sure it began with the letter P and had several syllables.
I googled synonyms, I asked the OH, I asked my very clever and the walking dictionary herself best friend… Nothing.
So… rather than discuss my amazing but elusive, possibly non-existent, word I will offer this week the word that means not being able to recall a precise word… Lethologica.
It is happening more and more frequently to me these days, as is entering a room with no idea why I did so and standing in the supermarket wondering what on earth I needed to buy.
It seems my senior moments are really kicking in. Maybe I need to take up Sudoku or crosswords? Words With Friends anyone?
If I ever figure out what my mystery word was I will let you know!
Join in guys… tell me about your senior moments or struggles to remember words or tasks.
