    Vocabulary

    Sometimes, I uses words which people don't understand or haven't heard of it before.  I don't know where I pop those words and they sure does exist.  :)  The point is; I want to increase my vocabulary.

    I Enjoy Learning New Words ...

    I enjoy learning new words and learning how and when to use them. I am a rare breed as I hardly ever swear, so new words come in very handy to express myself. I think that people who swear with every second word, have a very limited vocabulary.
