Maybe it’s just me, but the older I get, the more thankful I am for the Thesaurus feature in Word. There are times when I have an entire sentence or paragraph mapped out in my head, but by the time my fingers get to that critical word, it has disappeared to that special place in my mind — you know the one — the place that is similar to the spot in the washing machine where socks go to hide. Normally, I can get close enough to the right word to look it up in the Thesaurus, but there are times when even that doesn’t help and the word is just completely gone. Fortunately, I’m still creative enough that I can usually rewrite the sentence using a completely different word. If this never happens to you, please don’t tell me.
I might end up with one of those…um…what’s the word…something to do with a complex? I might end up feeling bad about myself.
