Find a New Word

Written for The Daily Post from WordPress – Verbal Ticks

Is there a word or a phrase you use (or overuse) all the time, and are seemingly unable to get rid of? If not, what’s the one that drives you crazy when others use it?

Per.fect: having no mistakes or flaws

I would like to buy this sweater.
Perfect!
I will take the 3:00 appointment.
Perfect!
Credit, please.
Perfect!

I never realized the luminosity
of pearls that dropped from
my lips, until this old word
became born-again, and suitable
as any reply.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
