i learned a new word today

I don’t know why I do it, but I like to switch words around.  Like… if Tim says “Dairy Queen” I’ll just fire back “Quairy Deen!”  There is no reason for it.  Tim never requests it.  It’s almost automatic.  The words just come out.  I guess I’m strange like that.  I do tend to refrain from this kind of behavior while at work or in larger social situations.  But if it’s just Tim and I… watch out.  No holds barred.

And I just learned that there is actually a word to describe my condition: Spoonerism.  Go figure.

(I just like to do it… the information and research behind it all almost make switching words around seem like a chore…).

    When I was little I called antennaes, tanannaes and coat hangers hang coaters. I stopped using the tanannaes, but hang coaters…not so much. It’s gotten to the point where my husband now says hang coaters.
