Word of the Day: Persnickety
An Unfortunate Encounter with Mr. Snickety
Per-per-Mr. Percy Nicholas Snickety
Snick-snick-snicker Old Snickety
Finnicky tricks with splikity-spick jiminy
So slick you snit-pick to flick out serendipity
Tie your knickers to snotty-knotty per-sniffery
And split-nick your persnickety way home.
Many thanks to Melanie whose challenging instructions were: Write a poem, story or anecdote, inspired by this word....Most importantly? HAVE FUN! (I did.)

That is such a CUTE poem and great use of the word and it’s other meanings! Bravo Dora!

Hahaha. Your doing entirely. Saying “Have fun” on a Friday is like waving raw meat before dogs! 😉
