Don't you just love that word. Rambunctious. It is so fun to say, like being young and Julie Andrews, through her Mary Poppins character, teaching us to sing "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious".

Atrocious - another great word.

 I also like the word slither, although I don't particularly like snakes that slither. Hither, as in hither and yon, is another good one.

Then there is the book I used to read every year to my first grade class, Tikki Tikki Tembo, the story of a Chinese boy who had the very long name:

Tikki Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-chari Bari Ruchi-pip Peri Pembo.

I read the story for my own enjoyment of reciting the sing-song name, and then teaching the children to memorize it, who in turn used it to impressed their friends and family.

Words are magical. I like them. Happiness is often times found in the simple things.
