I found a word today and my being out of touch with the facts did not recognize it. I use word like opine and some of the other o words from time to time, “opium” is not one that is fixed in my verses each day. I told someone that I had to look it up because I thought I had a new word. Now, sometimes I feel so stupid.
The other word “elixir”, is a valid word that I have never heard of before. So I am not totally stupid. There is always a ghost somewhere around.
