I recently wished another blogger I follow a Happy Blog Anniversary. I simply commented "Happy Blogiversary". I know I didn't make up that word - I'm not usually that clever - but judging from the comments people had not heard it before ... so ... I'm claiming it as my word for today.
That just reminded me of another word I read in a book (Red Tide by Jeff Lindsay) recently, that I meant to comment on in my review and forgot. The word was "coughter". I mentioned it to my daughter and she immediately knew what it was - uncontrollable laughing until it makes you cough - and then she said "that would be an awesome word for Joe-Land." It warmed my heart that she even remembered that made up place.
So there are my first two contributions to "Is that a Werd". Has anyone else come across words that are not real but yet convey the thought perfectly. I'd love to see them 'cause who knows, Joe-Land may need a dictionary some day?
