A word of caution to tourists: Keep your windows rolled up when driving through the countryside to avoid contracting the bucolic plague.

The first symptom is mooing out the window. See a doctor if you or a loved one exhibits this symptom.

Daily Prompt

Sounds Right This is clearly subjective, but some words really sound like the thing they describe (personal favorites: puffin; bulbous; fidgeting). Do you have an example of such a word (or, alternatively, of a word that sounds like the exact opposite of what it refers to)? What do you think creates this effect?

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. It’s not deadly, though – and I should know!

  2. I have had this for years. There is no known treatment and you end up segregated and marginalized from the people who live in cities because of their fear that they might catch it.

  3. You have it bad! And I want some!

  4. I love Bucolic Plague! I need regular doses —- cause I can’t get enough. Thankfully I am well placed to satisfy my addiction.

    Is it any wonder? Had the privilege of spending a good part of my childhood on a working farm — I love me some “Moo(s)” 🙂

  5. Cows may go weeks or months without being spoken to. One kind mooo out the window could make some lonely cow’s day. 🙂

  6. I’ve always thought ‘bucolic’ to sound completely wrong for its meaning.
