Blog Challenge "B"

I really wanted to post yesterday like I was supposed to, buuuuuuuuut . . . I was traveling back from Miami.  Needless to say, it was a long day!  It was the end of a trip where we changed time zones 6 times in 6 days!  We got back and we didn't know which was was up!

Anyway, for the blog challenge I'm doing, you're supposed to post Monday through Saturday, but I think I have a legitimate excuse for posting today instead.  :)  So onward we move with B:

B is for: Battology


Well, first off.  What does it sound like?  Someone who studies bats?  Nope.  That would be too obvious. :)  A Battologist is actually someone who repeats the same thing needlessly.  You know, someone who likes to say the same thing over and over in different ways as if you didn't understand the first time.  Kind of like a person who over-explains through repetition. . .

You get the idea.  Unfortunately, I think I'm a little battalogical, myself.  Maybe not on my blog, because I have the opportunity to reread several times before posting.  In real life, words just come right out.  No taking those back!

Know any battologists?  Feel free to let them know we have a word for them!  LOL.

My significant other is unfortunately a battologist. So glad I have something to call it other than 'annoying'...

Very cool word! Can't wait to use it in a sentence. The suspense will be unbearable until I can put this with other words like verbs and nouns. It will be difficult to delay in using this new found word. In other words, I will be in despair until I can show off this newly acquired word. See what I'm saying, I...

My grandmother is definitely a battologist. She will repeat herself in various ways about six times before I have to insist to her that I understand, she doesn't need to tell me again. Drives me crazy.

So what you're saying is that Battologists are also OCD and Type-A? I find myself having to be one occasionally, because people don't listen, so I feel that by saying it differently it will work. I also think, Jess, that every grandmother is one...
