Word nerd

My daughter, who says I’m a word nerd, sent me this quiz today. I love words and toy with them all the time, so my interest was piqued.

If it was a game of scrabble then that word would surely make for some decent points.

I remember the invasion of Kuwait, my daughter was 10 years old at the time and I used to buy the papers so we could read them. I remember telling her that this was history, we were living in momentous times.

I think I still have some of the front pages….I’m weird like that.

But for sure, I never realized just how evil the whole thing was. And still today, we have evil men plotting dastardly events and violence against mankind.

I think we need a meteor to arrive…
