Trust Me, I Am A Real Person






















I like words....just ask my honey. He's making one of those "blabby" signs with his hand as I type this!

A lot of bloggers have those word verification settings. It is supposed to tell if we are a real person or a machine, I think. When I leave a comment and am asked to type the word in as it appears, what do I do? I sound out the word as I type.   Like it's a real word-----Not.

Then I noticed recently that I started making up meanings in my head for the words. Here are some examples of actual verification words and my made-up meanings --

scrorede: past tense use, hurried skating. "He scrorede to his friends house yesterday."
purphaph: uber-phaph, urban slang - awesome, rad or sweet. "Dude, your skates are purphaph!"
nonnidym: root word from Chinese river Nonni, meaning fast flowing. "Dude your purphaph skates are nonnidym!"
emberner: ever since. "Dude! Emberner I saw how nonnidym your purphaph skate scrorede to my house, I want a pair."  

Trust me, I AM a real person. However, I might need tescobey: extreme intense therapy. "Dudette, you need some serious tescobey."  Am I alone here, or does anyone else try to sound out these words?  

Eamebake, chickies!

Yep, I try to make them a real word, but haven't reached the point of making up definitions for them - yet!

Angie @ Free Rein said...

Too funny. No, I haven't attached any meanings to them but it sounds fun. We all probably need a little "tescobey" from time to time!

You've started something here. Now everyone will be doing it. Something new for me to share with "Wilson", he-heeee!

Oh this is too funny! Have you noticed you get some of the same words over and over? Once I got "Satan" and my husband happened to be standing by me and saw it and said, "what on earth are you doing?" He was not familiar until then with these word puzzles!

marie said...

Too funny! I do that all the time. Every now and then I jot one of them down just becasue I like the sound of it. However, I have never defined them....but now I will!

Thanks for the chuckles!! Loved this post.

Christine Edwards said...

Love your definitions. I definitely sound out the "words" as if they were real, but I love how you've taken it the next step. I may have to come up with some definitions on my own. :-)

Darlene said...

HAHAHA those are just too funny! Some of them do crack me up when I have to type them in.

Dawn said...

LOL! I find it funny how many times the random letters make real words, and they often seem to apply to something I'm thinking about!

LOL! This is too funny. You would could be the next Webster. ;) I like words too but I think you have me beat.

Grace @ Ruby Moon Designs said...

Haha! I haven't sounded the verification words out loud yet, but I can't blame you for making "real words" out of them! Too funny!

I do this all the time! I think it's hilarious how often those word verifications sound like real words.
BTW, I don't know dressing from stuffing, either--but thanks for visiting me!

Enjoy your day.

That was very funny. it really made me smile.I wonder if I will start doing that as I am tying in those letters.

French-Kissed said...

How very clever you are! I think you have a future in linguistics. I don't think I will every look at those verifications the same way. Too cute!

LOL, I do this too. It's weird when every once in while you get a real or nearly real word. I love how you put them in sentences :-)
Blessings,

Karen said...

A couple blogs I visit have commenters who type their word verification at the bottom of their comment and make up a definition to go with it. They're always hilarious.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Yours is so very nice!
