An Unknown writer simply and truthfully prayed:
“Please God; make my words today sweet and tender for tomorrow I may have to eat them.”
Going further with this prayer let me add, “And please God, remind me constantly to be delicious with my words, flavor them with golden honey and let loved ones feed from the abundant banquet table where loving and gentle words are graciously served around the clock.” Amen.
Going off on another tangent, here in the United States we observed Labor Day today, Sept 3, to celebrate working people and their contributions to our society. It signifies that summer is ending and traditionally, children would go back to school tomorrow. These days, however, schools have revamped their schedules and many students are already attending school.
I think I hear all the happy parents cheering in the background! Back to school, yay!

Of course you spotted the new word right away as: Cruciverbalist (kroo-ci-VUHR-buh-list) noun
~One who dreams up crosswords or an enthusiast of word games, especially of crosswordsIn the hilarious movie, All About Steve, Mary Horowitz (played by Sandra Bullock), is a crossword puzzle writer and thus can be tagged a real cruciverbalist.
Well, there you have it…the, “nothing you ever wanted to know,” ravenous vampire, biting out a few things on words…and things…and…
I am so outta here!
