My Ten Favorite Words

Inspired by @ListPrompts
  1. Emollient
    Hard to imagine that lotion ingredients could provoke a smile, but the sound of this amuses me.
  2. Gherkin
    Baby pickles! It even sounds adorable!
  3. Gruel
    Not grueling, but Oliver Twist "please sir, can I have some more" watery oatmeal. The face you make when you say it is probably the same face you'd make if you taste it...
  4. Serendipity
    A happy accident, made aware of via the movie of the same name with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. I'm a sap!
  5. Calliope
    One of the nine (?) Greek Muses, plus another word for a merry go round, but astoundingly I remember this word from the name of a character on a soap opera my mother watched when I was a kid.
  6. Zephyr
    Who doesn't like a good z-word?
  7. Chocolate
    Obviously 🍫
  8. Amuse-Bouche
    Not even sure if I spell it right, but my brain automatically thinks of Chandler Bing "it's so amousing!" 😏
  9. Kiss
    😘
  10. Mitten
    It sounds as snuggle-y as it feels!
