Week in Seven Words #349

channel
Like many kids, he doesn't like writing. If only there were a program that could instantly convert his thoughts into coherent paragraphs. Instead, he has to grind the point of his pencil into his notebook and dig up each word.

divvied
One of the most companionable kind of dinners is when you and your loved ones demolish a pizza.

exponentially
When we've almost arrived at the solution to the math problem, I realize we could have done it in 27 or so fewer steps...

habitual
One sign the dog is on the mend is that she's getting yelled at again for eating toilet paper.

reunion
They spot each other at opposite ends of the room. One of them laughs, and the other flies across with arms reaching.

self-diagnosis
An insect bite of indeterminate origin. Should I worry? Half the sites say yes; the others tell me no, probably not.

throb
They're at a bar, and the beat of the music fills the space between them, helping them delay a conversation they'd rather not have.

Your thoughts on "exponentially" apply to many things in life, not just math problems. Such a realization leads to a strange mix feelings involving both a sense of accomplishment and frustration.

I now want to eat pizza for dinner :)

Hi Hila,

I haven't heard the term 'divvied up' for ages. I am in my late 50s now and it was something we said all the time as children!

Using the internet for self-diagnosis is always a risky business. Whenever I have used the sites, what started off as something small ends up as something potentially life threatening! and as for the side effects of medication??? Best off staying away from the sites and doctors for as long as possible!!

Thanks for sharing, it is great to catch up with you and enjoy your weekend :)

Yvonne

@ Brian - Very true (sometimes the frustration outweighing the feeling of accomplishment).

@ Yvonne - Sometimes the Internet does help with self-diagnosis. Other times, yes, it can drive you nuts :) Hope you have a good weekend too.
