Strong lungs come from long words
I like how HONORIFICABILITUDINITATIBUS sounds if I could say it, so I must learn to say it in one breath because it’s a great way to show off you have strong lungs.
It’s, actually, a made-up word, which, I guess, means it’s not of any use if you want to sound intelligible or intelligent. Although it can make you indelible. It’s used by Shakespeare as an example of SESQUIPEDALIAN (which means ‘long words’) pomposity. Well, that’s all you need to know. It’s probably best to keep away from it. Shakespeare was an expert at making people look like fools.
So…if I ever manage to say this word in one breath – which, in itself, would be a great pulmonary achievement – all I’ll actually achieve is make a sesquipedalian pompous ass of myself. Which will be really pompositidulitatibus of me.
Amazing what words are out there. I am going to leave Florida and move to the Pacific North West. March 14th is the date. Please keep me in the loop. I will be more available after the first week in April.
Gorgeous photo! I love it!
