Word of the Week

miss:

To miss yourself is not to somehow become aware of the absence of your body, but to fail to experience something enjoyable through not being in the right place at the right time: “Ye missed yerself not comin’ on Saturday … it was a right good night.”  (i.e. you missed out.)

If you are angry with someone and you are telling a third party exactly what you will do when you catch the offender, you might say Ah’ll no miss him or, in its fuller form, I’ll no miss him an’ hit the wa‘.

Hear my audio.

  1. I love your accent. It makes me all tingly and what not 🙂 🙂

  2. I am so glad you got to put the audio up. It turned out fine. There was no mention of arse….HMMM.

  3. He was so young. I’m sorry for your loss.

  4. Oh – I learned something (again).
    Thanks a lot :D!

  5. Right after I read about your OB-Gyn, I got a phone call from a friend. One our dearest pals died last night at age 49 of colon cancer. On Tuesday of last week, one of our group visited with him in the hospital and said that he was praying for him. He asked that the prayers stop if they were for him to live because he was praying that he would die.

  6. So young. So sad.

    Thank you, again, for your Word of the Week. I so love listening to your voice.

    It’s a good thing we’re not married, you and I, for I would do nothing but listen to you talk. And then you would get bored, we’d get poor, and you’d divorce me and go marry some rich guy from Australia – and you’d do nothing but listen to him talk, etc.
