Speaking of keeping things simple, I've decided to sneak this simple little dissertation on The Uhhhh Word (which is one of The Very Unusual Short Stories out of this BIRD BRAINS UNLIMITED eBook) into this Blah Blog, so we can venture a little further off the beaten path and enjoy (a Blog within a Blog).
The Uhhhh Word Blog
you ever used The Uhhhh Word? Or for that matter do you have any idea what Uhhhh means? Well, I too have no idea what Uhhhh means? But I have used it quite often (especially when I was in High School). As a matter of fact, have you ever even heard of The Uhhhh Word? Well for your information, I just tried to look up the definition of The Uhhhh Word in my new Dictionary, but, of course, I was unable to find it. So, what I’d like to do is give you an example of how I have used The Uhhhh Word in the past, and perhaps you and I can come up with a suitable definition, and if we do, we can send in a request to submit our New Word to the Dictionary People.
Here is my example: I was sitting in English class (minding my own business) when, my teacher surprised me, by calling out my name and asked me a question. Out of my mouth came a slow Uhhhh? (Which of course, was a delaying tactic) to allow my brain time to come up with some sort of an answer.
My next move was to ask her to repeat the question? (Which of course, was another delaying tactic). For after all: (One) I was not listening (Two) I didn't study (Three) I was embarrassed, and (Four) When she repeated the question, she was obviously speaking in some Unknown Foreign Language, for I had no idea what she was talking about? But believe me, this wasn’t my English Teacher's first Rodeo. She just happened to be very familiar (with this same old song and dance). She popped me on the top of my head with her handy ruler (as she quickly moved on to her next victim). I wanted to tell her she was interfering with my Doodling but was afraid that might make things worse. (But what the heck!) not all people are understanding and compassionate.
By the way, please don’t forget to let me know if you can think of a good definition for The Uhhhh Word. And if we are lucky, they might acknowledge us in the forward to the next addition of the Dictionary, or at least give us some sort of a prize for coming up with A New Word.
Perhaps our definition could be somewhat like this: 1. Uhhhh A delaying Word, a confused Word, a drawn-out Word, a Word that denotes a searching, a scanning of the ole grey matter looking for an answer. 2. Uhhhh A desperate Word, usually followed by some sort of excuse (Probably a Lie!). 3. Uhhhh A repetitious Word one that has been repeated so many times that it will probably get you kicked out of class.
P.S. I can't wait to hear from you.
P.S.S. In case you didn’t know it, this is a Blog, for after all, I am a Blogger, and I would like to invite you to visit my website and perhaps you might even Leave a Comment or Two?
