That’s not a word

“That’s not a word”.  Jim looked at Carol as she spoke about yesterday’s events in the twangy accent and southern colloquialism, and this ordinarily  amused Jim but, today instead of amusement, this merely added to his situations frustration. “Yes it is I just used it in a sentence and you understood  it. My mama uses it and so does my cousin and daddy. Don’t be a sour puss on account of this work stuff. Here let me help you.” Jim smiled and showed Carol what he was working on.

You will find more times than not that our attitudes will alter our perspectives and our perspectives can alter our realities. In Jims case his bad attitude about work caused frustration which in turn made him lash out at Carol. In lashing out Jim made a statement I have heard before and it is not a true statement. Remember just because we don’t know a words definition or use doesn’t make it non-existent. A word is; a single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others (or sometimes alone) to form a sentence.

How is your attitude?  When I was in fifth grade there was a poster that featured a statement plastered over a pov photo of a hang glider, that read “Attitude equals Altitude” I don’t think more true words have ever been spoken (or written).

Oh and as far as words go…. well they are all made up and they are all real.
