AtoZ Blogging Challenge or Am I Nuts?

The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out



As a writer, my real tools are the words in my language. Fortunately, English has a ton--with more being added everyday. You can see where this is going, right? My favorite words from AtoZ. Okay, stop the sniggering. I'm not as creative as some, so give me a break, take a look and add your favorite word in your comment. I can always use more words.

Bodacious



Do you remember the line David Keith had in an Officer and a Gentleman? I loved that line because it used bodacious and "ta ta's" in the same sentence.

    1. It's kind of Tom Jones word, isn't it? Ripe and full of suggestion.

    2. I love bollocks. It's so much better than the American curse equivalent. And bombastic deserves some applause.

  7. Bodacious is a fun word!
    My favorite B word is barbecue! No just kidding, I just typed that because I'm hungry. A B word that comes to mind is 'behemoth' yeh, I guess I like that word. *says the short girl* (:

  8. I don't remember that line. I'll have to listen carefully the next time I see that movie. Hmm, a B word .. how about buttocks. Fresh on my mind cuz I just got a cortizone shot on one of mine an hour ago at the doctors.:)

    1. Somebody else stole my word of the day? That says something about just how catchy bodacious is.

  12. I think we're all a little nuts. I like unusual words too, so bodacious hits the spot just right. :)

  13. I do remember that line in that movie. His character ended so sadly. Bodacious is a great word.

  14. Hey C. Lee,

    Good grief, thought I'd have to scroll for the next two weeks to get to where to comment. Now, I have to scroll back up to reread your posting. A brief musical interlude....Okay, I'm back.

    Your posting was like totally bodacious and sorry spell check, that is a word. TTFN, or Ta Ta For Now. And thanks for letting me know you start at the beginning of the alphabet. What was I thinking...

  15. Words! Of course that was the answer to the riddle ;)

    Bodacious... it rolls right off the tongue!

  16. I love the word Bodacious especially when it is used with ta-tas.

    1. Oh, yes. That's a great B word! Thanks.

  19. I cannot believe there are almost 2000 participants now. Wow! I'm watching from the sidelines and am so amazed.
    Great word and great movie line, and I love your theme. :-)

  20. Bodacious is a great word!

    I hadn't scrolled all the way down the A to Z Challenge participant list until now. Wow. Those are a ton of bloggers.

  21. Haha, yes, I remember that line! That's such a good movie. I'm trying to think of a "B" favorite word, and I can't think of one (though I know you just asked for a favorite overall). Let's go with brainiac since it popped in my head.

  22. Bodacious is an awesome word! I also like bruhaha.

  23. HA! Bodacious. Talk about a word that brings back memories :-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Bodacious is a fine word, and very satisfying to say, too. One of my favourite "B" words is bloviate (to talk at length, especially in an inflated or empty way) because it sounds so much like what it means. We ALL know a bloviator, don't we? :)

  25. I actually don't think I watched An Officer and a Gentleman.

    Love the word bodacious. :-)

  26. That is such a great word! Makes me think of Fast Times at Ridgemont High. LOL

  27. Wow, I can't believe how many people are participating in the A to Z Challenge this year!

  28. Bodacious is a great word! I love the word surreptitious. :) I just think it is fun.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
