Are you suited?

Today’s word is suited. It’s a word that means one fits in. In other words, you are suited for something or other. You have the abilities, personality, character for something or other that will make something you are suited for a success. I’ve liked that word. It’s a safe, secure word with definition. I know where I stand with suited. It’s one of those words where you just know the meaning. Because, I think, you and I know our limitations, we know when we are suited for something or other. For some tasks and jobs, it might just take a little trying out first. Then, we’d know if we are suited.


What if your body language gave way to you being rejected? It just signaled to the other person a warning sign. The perils of body language, then. One must fight back the invisible throttle to one’s dignity and reposition one’s self in a self-accepting manner. One does this one’s self, it’s just a natural reaction to feeling like duh. Really deal with it later.


A way to be understood if someone cannot distinguish your speech. Say one is asking another person what spread she wants on her toast. One may say, “Do you want cheese?” The other person cannot distinguish the word cheese. They say, “Weeze?” To be understood, the first person says, “The mouse likes cheese.” The other person understands when you bring a context. Everyone knows mice like cheese! “Oh, you said cheese. No, I’ll have peanut butter.”

Solitary letters

I , J , K , are solitary letters. In any kind of reference work they are among the few letters that have the least entries. For example. A movie guide is often alphabetical, but I find that the movie titles under the letters I , J , and K are few. For a language or English scholar this may be a reason to ask, why? Yet for anyone who is interested in the English language and the construction of words a reason to find out more. Why are I , J , and K among the most solitary letters? And when these letters contribute to words, they make for the most lonely of words.
