Word For Wednesday (W4W) #61


Play along here!

This week’s word(s) is:


That’s me.

The OH bought me this lovely little book a while ago which is perfect for any logophile like me.
Today I am late posting because I just couldn’t come up with a word to write about at all. Hence, my search for this little book to see if it could offer me any inspiration, which in turn resulted in this week’s W4W.

The book? I cannot find it anywhere! I have looked on every bookshelf, (and that amounts to quite a few), and in every drawer in the house and I simply cannot find the darned book!

So, me being me, I looked online to see if there is a term for a person who loses things and came up with mislayer.

“Great! I have a word after all,” I thought and settled to write.

Something, some mysterious force unknown to me, made me turn my head one last time towards the bookshelf behind me in the kitchen, (which I had already glared at three times), and look what leapt out at me? Yep, you guessed it!


How it ended up with the cookery books I will never know! Mind you, I have no idea why my aromatherapy book is there either… Perhaps I need a bit of a clear out and reorganising day?

So, today take your pick from mislayer / idiot, because you are reading the mad ramblings of one right now!

  1. I can so relate to this 😀
    I’m forever putting things somewhere safe and of course never finding them again 🙂
    And it’s so irritating when you look and look everywhere and can’t find it. Then two minutes later it’s exactly where you’ve looked!

  2. So I read all the way to the bottom…and misread the last sentence. I thought: “that is such as good idea !!!”

    Here is how my warped mind read it….
    a bit of a clear out and reorgasming day

  3. Well to mislay is “to put in a place that is afterward forgotten”. And yes, I’ve mislaid many things. Earrings, keys, the cordless telephone (which turned up in the freezer next to an empty container of ice cream), I once mislaid my passport a couple of hours before getting on the plane to come back from Italy (that was a scary morning). My mother thinks I’m disorganized & that I lose things, but it’s not true. It’s just that nothing is ever where I think it is.
