amble?? Is there a letter missing? An R maybe? or more than one letter missing? Scramble would be a word I could sink my teeth into (I know, Bad Pun! lol) Amble just looks like it is missing something to make it “real”. For all you purists I do know that Amble is a word..I even know what it means. It just LOOKS like it is a half-word..a misspelling…a stupidity in the making.
I prefer words that annoy people, that show an emotion. Why can’t I sashay instead of amble? I LIKE sashay. it is reminiscent of southern ladies at an afternoon barbeque, ala Scarlet O’Hara. It is perfumed walks along a riverside, dangling a lacy handkerchief or tilting a parasol.
Or how about Toddle? That brings a smile to people’s faces that amble will never accomplish. I think of babies learning to walk
..puppies trying to get from one place to another.
Toddle is an amazingly happy word. Amble just sounds stupid.
Why can’t we use Mosey? Mosey along now and you wander slowly from hither to yon, eventually getting to wherever. No one is ever in a hurry when they mosey.
I suppose I could always loiter…except I am bound to get into trouble for it later. No one wants to loiter. No loitering is ever allowed. We have signs all over the place saying so. Instead of no loitering, couldn’t we have “please mosey” instead?
Somehow I feel like this post is just wandering around instead of going wherever it should be going….but, it is Monday, so I don’t even care. I’m off to do something amazing and/or wonderful today. I may meander around town..or I might wander aimlessly. I haven’t a clue what it is yet but I am sure it will be exciting and I will tell you all about it once I discover whatever it is.
