  2. My new favorite word is ‘bewilderment’; as in:
    “Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.
    Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment is intuition” – Rumi
    and of course I have always loved ‘dispensation’.

  3. “Dispensation” is a good one. Nice to say, although it can have pharmaceutical connotations. (Which can itself be good or bad.)

  10. every time I hear “manifest” I think “their superpowers are yet to manifest” — read it in some comic way back . . .

    a fishy dispensation manifests

  11. LMAO – well, my powers have yet to manifest, so that’s very accurate. I also like the phrase ‘a fishy dispensation manifests’.

  12. I think I can sneak in here and finally say (without too many people giving me the stink-eye) that Dispensation always, always reminds me of church: “the dispensation of the fulness of times.” Just sayin!

    Also, I’ve always loved complicated medical terms, like phlebotomy and pharmacokinetics. I guess I’m partial to ‘p’ words, eh? 😉 (that would explain my fascination with the word Parliament in my late teens. Hm.)
