Loquacious Means Wordy

One time my boss said I was loquacious - it means "wordy" - do you see any irony in that?

I tell you this now because I have no time to run on-and-on-and-on-and-on being all redundant and saying the same things over-and-over. I am beginning a time when an economy of words will be highly necessary. I have two major grant applications due before the end of the month. So, you can see, I will need to conserve my words and any incidental wit and/or charm that is attached to them. I will need every bit of mojo, juju and Word Fu for the shameless pandering for money contest.

Pressed for time and mental energy I'll need to go more Ernest Hemmingway on ya. There was a man. He was old. He had a boat. The End.
I love Ernie, he keeps it real; really, real.

Maybe I can take a page out of Dennis' book. I did 4 blog entries on the Womble, intricately describing occurrences both ordinary and otherwise. Dennis, very adeptly and unloquaciously, posted 2 pictures and said, "that was fun, what's next?"

For the sake of concise, succinct, laconic and compendious communication I should probably just rely on the 1,000 words that have been symbolically ascribed to a picture.

Try this one; it says see, I told ya that it wasn't that big of a deal when I fell down the tight bit on the big "exposed" hill.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, words, words, words, words, stuff and things.

Sorry, just had to get those outta my system. I can't help it, I'm loquacious.

Being the nerd that I am, I looked up the meaning of Loquacious. Here are some other synonyms: babbling, chattering, chatty, fluent, gabby*, garrulous, gossipy, jabbering, long-winded*, loose-lipped, motormouth, multiloquent, prolix, verbose, voluble, wordy, yacking. Hmm, sounds familiar. Perhaps you should look up the meaning of the word brevity.

In your honor I pronounce loquacious as the word of the day.

I love that picture. It really gives an idea of how steep the hillside is.
