Friday Favorites: Favorite Words

friday favorites


Hello, fellow bookworms!

Today’s post is a tag that was created by Something of the Book and she has a whole list of Friday Favorites to follow. They are awesome and it is a fun way to find new books with a twist and see how others have answered it!

I am excited for this prompt! I am a fan of using great words and honestly, there are a couple that I use daily. There are also words that I just find hilarious and should use more. So, let’s get into this!

1.) Dillweed

This one I use everyday more than once. It is my go-to insult for everything. ” What are you doing, dillweed?” or “Come on, stop being a dillweed!”


2.) Flabbergasted

I mean, this one is just fun to say. I do need to use it more because it is such a fantastic word!


3.) Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

I love all things Disney and this was a perfect time to mention this word. Plus, Mary Poppins is so pretty!


4.) Appalled

Honestly, I feel like this is me all the time. So, I use it a lot, Haha!


5.) Lollygag

“Come on guys, quit lollygagging around!” I probably say this one too many times.

There are more that I enjoy but these are definitely used more and are my top 5!

  1. Omg I love all of these words. Dillweed and Lollygag are definitely two that aren’t heard or used ever in this part of the world (at least, I haven’t found anyone who even knows what it means haha)! Flabbergasted was on my list too. I surprisingly use that word a lot 🤣 Great post, Joanna!

  2. Great choices! I love every single one of these. One word my dad and I have been using a lot is ‘defenestrated,’ which means throwing someone out of a window. I’m also partial to the word ‘hobbledehoy,’ which is old and rarely-used and means a ‘clumsy and awkward youth.’ 🙂
