Apparently I have a lack of "O's" in my life, other than saying "Oh" from time to time. But saying "Oh" is not a subject to write about. I also thought about "Oldies" because I thought an Oldie would be an elderly (not to say old) woman or man, but apparently it only concerns songs.

Sitting here in front of my blank canvas screen I finally asked Google to give me some ideas. I googled for words starting with O ! The result was amazing ! I learned so many expression that from now on I will talk like a scientist !

I stated that some of my plants look oligopetalous, which means that they have only few petals ! That the birds this year are oligotokous, they only produce few youngs.

When I looked at my feet while stepping into the swimming pool I stated that I am not oarfooted which means that my feet are not adapted for swimming. Fortunately I didn't have an onycholysis which means the separation of a nail from its normal attachment to the nail bed.

I also would need an opificer, to do some reparations in the house. It sounds much better then a workman. Next time I'll ask my neighbor if she doesn't know some efficient opificer !

And for supper tonight I told Mr. G. that I would cook some oryza together with chicken and vegetables, he of cours thought it was a very opiparous(sumptuous) meal but it's only rice.

With that I hope that my O level in school has improved.



  1. Hi Gattina .. well done - what a good way to increase your vocabulary .. but you'll be spending so much time explaining all the words all the time .. but I loved the post.

    I do enjoy oryza .. cheers Hilary

  2. What a fun post! Who knew there were so many big and complicated O words!

  3. Great post. You taught me some words tonight.

  4. I love doing stuff like this.
    Makes me look intelligent. lol
    Then I too forget the words cause they are never used.
    But it's fun and this was a fun post. :)

  5. Oh, oh, oh and OH! I loved it, especially the silly happy face guy!

  6. I have to admit, I didn't know even ONE of those O words you used. So don't feel like you were missing OUT on anything. My O words are that ONEROUS! {:-D

  7. Hi Gattina,

    Oh dear, I s enjoyed reading about all the letters with O - didn't realise there was another word for rice!Next time I will say oriza instead of rice! Good post dear!

  8. I can tell you, you DO talk like a scientist now!!

  9. wow...that was quite an education!
