I learned a new vocabulary word the other day that I like. Morpion. I'm not sure why I like it so much, but it has a nice ring to it. Kinda like scorpion. And frittata. Those have a nice ring to them as well.

Now for those of you who enjoy reading the dictionary or really any kind of book at all, you're probably way ahead of me on this new word, but somehow it has managed to escape my attention until now. All this time I thought I had a pretty good vocabulary. I mean, I know all the four letter words and some of the fivers too! What more do you want from me? So now I'm wondering what other words are out there that I don't know about. Help me out here people. Specifically, I really need words to describe the following:

  • That weird taste you get in your mouth the next morning when you forget to brush your teeth before bed
  • The act of burning the roof of your mouth on hot pizza (I just did this, so please hurry up and find this one for me so I can adequately describe it in my next hilarious entry)
  • A generic term that describes the annoyance of your coworker constantly blowing his/her nose, clearing his/her throat or just plain existing in general.
  • A cromulent new word for "cool". "Cool" has been done to death, and the alternatives (hot, awesome, wicked, rufus, etc) all bore me too.

Ok, so you have your homework assignment. Please report back and let me know. In the meantime, here's a game to embiggen you and provide inspiration: Kitten Cannon. (P.S. My best so far - 1026)
