Blog Challenge "Y"

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all have a great weekend.

Y is for: Yex

A yex is a hiccough.  Easy enough, right?  (Well, easier than the last word.)  I often wonder why we have so many different words for the same things in English.  I can never come up with a solid answer, either.  Even more so, I wonder why when we have two names for something, we don't always use the cooler of them.  Nobody knows "yex," but everyone and their dog knows "hiccough" and how to cure it.

Am I the only one who thinks yex is cooler?  :)

is a hiccough like a hiccup?
yex sounds like a character in a dr suess book =)

the yex put a hiccouphing curse on the quex!
he hiccoughed all day
he hiccoughed all night
until the yex took off the hex!

I like Yex instead of Hiccough. It makes it sound more dignified; although when I have them, I'm sure I will not be as amused.

@ Tara Yeah, hiccough is actually the correct spelling for "hiccup"

Nice Seussical rhyme, btw. :)
