Word of the Day

awkward

Greatest word in the English language. Looks cool with the Ws flanking the K. The only word that can adequately describe adolescence. Loads of fun to say too. Awkward, we love you.

Awkward: bunglesome, ungainly, clumsy, blundering, graceless, klutzy, floundering...

I remember those days well.

What prompted this Slappy?

An email when someone flippantly suggested we get together and play Risk. I responded that Risk reminded me of my awkward adolescence. Then, as the Jiggs community is oft to do, I obsessed over the word until I decided to post it.
