I had an interesting random conversation the other day with JT and we started talking about words and what words we like. He likes to say "abat-jour" which means blind in French. I told him that my two current favorite words are draconian and sycophant. I just like the way the sound when I say it. Plus nobody this this office knows what I mean (but some pretend to) so I use "sycophant" right in front of the sycophant.
Some of my other favorite words or expressions included: ode, hope,"joie de la vie" (joy of life in French), schlep, putz, schmuck, (all in Yiddish) corazon (heart in Spanish), bella (beautiful in Italian), muse, and sapphire.
I have many more but maybe I will save them for another day!
