A four year old and a frenchman.

here/yesterday


That was brilliant.

That was a treat.

First swim of the year.

Many to come.

It was fresh!

It was invigorating!

The body is a tingle!

Talking of tingles, I heard a new word today.

And what was that?

Draggled.

How would you use it?

Well, I’m absolutely draggled; I’ve been through the hedge backwards.

So it’s like bedraggled, only shorter?

Exactly. I have another.

I’m all ears.

Oftently.

How would you use that?

I am oftently in the river.

So it’s like often, only longer?

Exactly.

I’m oftenly draggled.

You’ve got it.

Where do these new words come from?
