Word predictions are fun. Creating words is fun, too. I suppose that makes me a wordy. I appreciate the play of words, the sound of words, the arrangement of words, the roots of words, the usage of words, the flow of words, the fashion of words, the glory of words, the inadequacy of words, the visuals of words, the synchronicity of words, the execution of words, in both senses of the word.
