Daily Prompt: Dictionary Shmictioanary

Time to confess: tell us about a time when you used a word whose meaning you didn’t actually know( or were very wrong about it, in retrospect).

I have noticed even the most educated people have used these words inaccurately, e.g , (to, too, two) (lose, loose,) and (there, their and they’re).

Even though the above words do not seem difficult, yet they are used incorrectly. One example is :it looses its value.

In the above sentence looses is incorrect, it should have been loses. I think if we think about the pronunciation of these words we’d be able to use them correctly.

Loses has a z sound whereas loose has an s sound.

I try to use simple words when I write my posts.

A song: tum ko dekha toh yeh khayal aya posted and translated by Ranu

When I see you my thought tells me,

Life is sunshine , you are thick shadow.

Today my heart has made a wish again,

I explain to my heart yet again.

Life is sunshine, you are thick shadow.

When you leave I will think,

What did I lose , what did I find?

When I see you, my thought tells me,

Life is sunshine, you are thick shadow.

The tune that I find so difficult to hum,

Why did   Time sing that kind of song!

“Everybody gets so much information all day long they lose their common sense.”— Gertrude Stein

Do you agree?

I agree with the above statement and it’s true we forget to use our common sense and eventually lose it. We do not give importance to our thinking because someone out there has all the answers, we do not value our common sense we begin to doubt ourselves.

Having said that I will be the first one to admit some information we get through media and different ads teach us things we are not aware of. It does not necessarily mean we should follow anything or everything.

beauty wants to stay away from feeling.

Infinite wants a close relationship with limit,

Upheaval in creation who knows  whose idea it is,

freedom is praying for confinement in the home.
