100 Words: I'm Discombobulated

HenohenomoheImage via Wikipedia

Discombobulated: I don't know why I love this word, but I always have and it seems I always will.

Maybe it's because saying, 'My life is discombobulated.' makes me smile at the silliness of this last word.

Plus it sounds so much better than saying:
  • Pain and fatigue make me quite muddled.
  • My health is a mysterious puzzle.
  • My sleep feels quite disturbed.
  • My thoughts are all jumbled.
  • All my plans have been undone.
  • My ambitions appear frustrated.
Yes, when life leaves me befuddled and bewildered, it's much more fun to say 'I'm discombobulated.'

Discombobulated is one of my favorite words too! Another one of my favorites is schnockered. I just love the way it sounds and feels coming out of my mouth. I never drink enough to get drunk, but I will have two glasses of wine and happily pronounce: "I am schnockered" just to say the word.

I LOVE THIS WORD... always have. I haven't heard it used a whole lot out here in the midwest but on the east coast, every day someone would say it. Too funny!! I like Serendipity.... it just rolls of the tongue. Have a great day. Tazzy
