I just finished watching the movie Ramona and Beezus. I will unabashedly admit, I rented it all by myself and watched it in the wee hours of the AM, all by myself. Can't hide behind grandkids or children...I chose it. It had some slow spots, yes. Overall, I was entertained and one of the highlights for me was Ramona making up her own words. Her teacher would tell her there is no such word, when she would use funner or....terrifical. I take great pride in selecting just the right word when I compose. I enjoy using words like 'droll' and 'supernal' while writing. However, I will now use Ramona's words and take anyone to task who would argue with me in the use of funner and terrifical to describe the day I spent with the two other women in the photo above!
I have had this photograph on my desktop, waiting for an inspired way to post about the occasion it represents. We were at Holden Beach, a more terrifical place to be I can't imagine, and the afternoon was spent decorating the beach house and preparing steamed shrimp and party food for Jim J's fiftieth surprise birthday. Three good friends on vacation with their families, celebrating one of life's milestones. It couldn't have been funner spending the afternoon with my terrifical friends! When a day is beyond fun...and my friends beyond terrific...I think funner and terrifical are precisely the superlative choices for descriptive words!
It was a very terrifical day, a scrapbook memory of funner times. Happily, I've had many other terrifical days with those two gal pals, and planning on many more funner times!
Ramona, you rock!
