Thinking about words

Bright and early today doing grocery shopping. All done now, and awaiting delivery. I would rather write than clean the refrig. (Wouldn't you?) I am working on the Marlowe-- but this is a little brain side-trip...


Years ago I read about a little girl who named her doll Felony because the word sounded so beautiful it ought to be a name. I sometimes think of words that way too. Stripped of meaning, some words just sound/feel lovely to say and hear. I have asked before if all of you have any favorites, but maybe you will indulge me again.

I like theodolite, and uvula. They seem to me that they could be names.

What do you all think?
