Using the Word of the Day

I get the word of the day on my phone. I like to see new words, and normally, I don’t have time to look right then. I might go back and have a look, if I am really curious. So, when I saw this word of the day back in January?

I’ll admit………..I said, “What?!”


Sounds like a pretty good concert in Germany. Am I the only one that says it with an Arnold accent?

Anyway, I like getting the word of the day. It makes me feel smart. It makes me feel accomplished. It makes me feel like I could possibly learn something, even if don’t. Because that would mean reading the definitions and/or using it in a sentence (maybe in that same month?). Ahem.

But katzenjammer intrigued me. I saved it and had to look it up tonight. What did it mean? And who in the world (besides Germany) would use it in a their normal language – not that there is anything wrong with using katzenjammer in every day language in America.

What secret does katzenjammer hold? What mysteries of the language will it reveal? Admit it, you like saying that. Does it make you giggle too?

If it’s not a concert in Germany, then could it possibly be a yacht sailing around the world?

I can smell the coconut oil, and sea breeze. Feel the warm sun as it sinks on the horizon of blue [pan close-up of umbrella drink].

You might be surprised to know the definition.

It is not a German concert.

Nor, a yacht sailing the tropics.


Does that change the word for you too? It’s no longer exotic, or foreign. It’s Ralph talking on the big white phone.

Katzenjammer, I will never drink again.

Katzenjammer, I need a big greasy burger.

Katzenjammer, pass the ice pack and two Tylenol, wake me when I can stand on two feet.

I had some katzenjammer times myself. Sooooo glad those days are over.

Thank-you word of the day, I remember why I love a glass of wine. ONE glass of wine. I wouldn’t want to have any katzenjammer hair of the dog.

I feel much better now, don’t you?
