Me: I need a word.
Me: No, I need a specific word. I’m pretty sure it starts with an “I” but it’s not influence or instigation. It’s like…subconscious related.
Me: Um, no – too profound. Insight. Implication. Im…
Thom: I’m going to need a little more here. And stop yelling “I” words while I’m thinking.
Me: Maybe innuendo…INNUENDO! Never mind, it’s not innuendo.
Thom: But at least you’ve found the perfect name for a Native American Boy Band.
Thom: Like Menudo?
Me: About the chemo brain today. Take the witty down a notch.
Thom: Are you sure it starts with an “I”?
Me: I guess not.
Thom: Let’s do this systematically then – aardvark?
Me: Why do I call you for help again?
Me: Infiltration? Oh wait, I went back to the “I’s” again. Damn. I guess I really think it starts with an “I”.
Thom: Go with agoraphobia.
Me: It’s not agoraphobia.
Thom: Are you sure?
Me: You kick puppies, too, don’t you?
Thom: How about insidious?
Me: That’s an adjective. I’m pretty sure I want a noun.
Thom: So it’s a noun that starts with “I” – are you flexible on either of those fronts?
Me: Oh hell, I’m just going to use instigation.
Thom: Yeah! Screw the English language. What has that bitch ever done for you?
Me: That was incredibly helpful. I’m never speaking to you again.
I’m like 90% sure you wanted the word yourmom. You were wrong when you said it started with an I. Whenever I’m at a loss for words I throw in a “yourmom” and I’m all set.
I’m a huge fan of the “yourmom” use, but it gets a little tricky with Thom seeing as how we have the same mom. She gets pretty pissy when we launch into a battle of your mama jokes at family functions. Not that it ever stops us…
Wow, that was epic win on Thom’s part.

Of course you go and take his side. You’re such a dick. Oh wait…
Well shit. This blog really paid off for me, because you gave me all the words I need for my next 13 blogs!
You’ve got a blog idea for oligarchy? I’m impressed!
I wish I had a friend like Thom… suggesting everything to help his friend… however you both better start copywriting that American Indian Boy Band Name INNUENDO!
Maybe they could open for Cher!
I love that Thom’s immediate (ooh…that’s an “I” word…does that help?) suggestion for any word at all was “oligarchy.” You know, instead of, like, “apple.”
Also, if I wake the baby laughing, I’m blaming you.

You know I never did come up with the actual word I wanted…and immediate wasn’t it either. FYI, neither was vaseline.
Ditto Falling’s reaction and love to the choice of Oligarchy. Now I am thinking Caligula and the heads… Not sure why.

I don’t like to think of Caligula and my siblings in the same sentence ever. I have to go brillo pad my brain now…
Imbecile? Imbibe? Impetigo? Imperialism? Impressionist? I have no idea. But I suspect I will be thinking in “I” words for the remainder of the day. At least that’s better than doing actual WORK.
.-= AnneÂ´s last blog ..This, That, and The Other =-.
Innuendo and inappropriate tend to be my most used I words…
