The way my mind works #1

I faithfully read (because they lovingly deliver it to my inbox each morning) Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day. The other day, a word struck my brain in a weird way. What follows is the conversation I heard in my head.

A walnut looks like a brainWORD OF THE DAY

dolorous

(adjective)
Pronounced DOH-luh-rus
1. causing, marked by, or expressing misery or grief

Not to be confused with Delores, who I’m sure is a lovely person.

*the end*


The Way My Brain Works is an infrequent series revealing, anyone, anyone… Bueller… the way my brain works. Look for more installments here as time goes by.

  1. I think of the name Delores when I read that word, too. I don’t know anyone named Delores, but I did know a girl named Dorcus, which I think is an awful name that might lead someone to be dolorous. 😉
