Hello all. Chickie here to keep the spirit of the CAWOW! series alive. Believe it or not, I've devoted an immense amount of time looking for this week's word and when I saw this one, I had to have it. It's a nice, compact little word and can probably be used in a variety of situations. Without further ado, please, put your hands together for this week's CAWOW! word... (drumroll, please)

spinky adj. (generally) good; neat, nifty, cool, spiffy. In the phrase spinky new, brand new. Also spinkee.

Nifty and spiffy are a couple of my favorite words and I just love finding another word that does the same thing as they do.

Spinky! Spinky! Spinky!

It just feels good to shout it. I've also had some fun whispering it to myself.

While I'm here I'd like to give an example of something that is the opposite of spinky: men who wear khaki shorts with tennis shoes and knee length socks. Agh! I've just about got all the males in the house switched over to ankle socks for those types of situations but sometimes they sneak the knee socks past me. While at a little league game yesterday I was checking the ratio of knee sockers to ankle sockers and it was about 2 to 1. One spirited fellow was wearing knee socks in the same color as his kids uniform, orange. And then I looked down at my calf and realized that I needed to shave my legs so I quit picking people apart.

Last night I told Sweety that I thought he was super spinky after he told me that he loved me but he did not take it kindly. Some people just don't know how to take a compliment.

So everyone, go spread some spinky around and let me know how it works out for you!

Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my work from home related site. It isnt anything special but you may still find something of interest.

AAAAAGH! Fucking Spammers!

I like that one. However, it is spinky to wear matching knee socks as a male if you are playing soccer. Other than that, NO.

Thank You Chickieeeeeeee!!!

I LOVE it! I must say, I'm having a blast in Nuth Carolonna. The highlight of my day was seeing a sticker on the side of a huge ass pick-up truck that said, "Git 'er done fer Jesus!" I'm tempted to think it was spinky. But, actually, it was a little disturbing. :-)

My favorite bumper sticker was one that said "If we're not supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat?" I actually fumbled for a pen while driving in order to write that one down! Spinky!

Wow, you have immensely helped my poetry career as you have now provided me with a viable choice with which to rhyme slinky! Oh the possibilities are endless now. To the moon I say!

Spinky? Wasn't he The Brain's sidekick?

Chickie said...

bonanza jellybean - In that case, the socks would be part of the uniform. So it would be unspinky to not wear them.

zube girl - I don't think the sticker would be considered disturbing. How about dedicated?

junebee - My favorite is "Beware of dragons for you are crunchy and good with ketchup"

erika - Are you mocking me? I think I'm going to go write a poem.

kyknoord - I knew I'd heard that word somewhere before!
