A Fribbolous Post If Ever There Was One
I know what you’re thinking.
And it better not be that I’ve not my marbles and my typing skills.
You’re thinking, “Lorna is making up words again, that clever wordsmitherizer!”
But I’m not making it up. Well, I did make up “wordsmitherizer,” but “fribble” is a real word. And it’s a versatile one, too. It can be beaten into submission and used as a noun, verb or an adjective. I think it’s my new favorite word.
**The noun form (least popular usage–I know because I sitting here feeling like a complete fribbler as I waste precious time trying to come up with a witty sentence to demonstrate the word): Oh, shizzle. Forget it.
**The verb form: “He fribbled away one job opportunity after the next by showing up for each interview in dressed as a zombie.”
**The adjective form: “It was, admittedly, a fribbolous gesture, but she couldn’t resist purchasing the outfit even though she was behind on her rent. Hey, it was her first date and she wanted to make an impression.”
If you are smarterific like me, you probably deducified that “fribble” is another word for “frivolous” or “foolish.”
Won’t your friends and family feel like fribbles when you start behaving fribbolously (I just used it as an adverb–score one for me!), tell them that’s exactly what you’re doing, and they have no clue what you’re talking about?
I love it when I can interjectify new real words into the lives of unsuspecting people, don’t you?
