This week in language arts, I learned the meanings of some really awesome words. One of the words, epiphany, I had already heard, from speech and from Ellen DeGenerous' book, The Funny Thing Is... Epiphany is a word that is basically your ah-ha! moment. My friend in humor, actually made her speech from Ellen's The Funny Thing Is..., which I find hilarious. One of the reasons I love the word epiphany is because of the way my speech friend said it in her humor. That is one of my many reasons on why I love the word epiphany. Three other words that I love would have to be utopia, wheedle, and jeered. I like the word utopia because it just sounds cool rolling off your tongue Try it now, but not if you need to be quiet, then don't try it right now. I like the word wheedle because it sounds like a really cool word even though it isn't that cool in definition. I like the word jeered because it sounds like what it means. When you say the word jeered, you kind of want to jeer yourself.
