I have to take a brief moment and toot my own horn for a second. I scored my first goal ever at my hockey game last night! For anyone who hasn't been reading my blog for long, I am a born-and-bred Texan who decided to pick up recreational ice hockey in my mid twenties. I just started about a year ago. So yaaaaaaaaay!!
Okay, so on to business. :)
G is for: Gargalesthesia
Don't be intimidated by the number of syllables in this one. It may actually come in handy. Gargalesthesia is the sensation you get from being tickled. It comes from the word for heavy tickling: gargalesis.
If you think about it, there really isn't a word we commonly use to describe the tickling sensation. We always just say "it tickles" or "that tickles" when we try to describe it. That's basically using a sentence in place of a noun (which isn't always proper). So now you know the proper noun to use. Now you can say, "wow, you gave me a real case of gargalesthesia" after someone tickles you. Or while you're being heavily tickled, you can say "Stop! You're giving me gargalesthesia!" At the very least, they'll stop tickling you so you can explain yourself. (It's really a good tactic, playing the smart card!)
Happy Friday, by the way! :)
