of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
You have probably told a taradiddle (tare-uh-dih-dull) at some point in your life.
Well, have you? Yes. I'm sure you have. I have told thousands of them.
A taradiddle is a tiny fib, a white lie, a small fabrication, an insignificant untruth, an embellishment.
So, now I ask you once again. Have you ever told a taradiddle?
If you still say "no," I believe that might be a taradiddle itself. But, perhaps not. Maybe you have honestly never told a taradiddle, and if that is the case, good for you!
Next time you tell a fib, and someone asks you if it was a lie, simply say, "Yes, I'm a notorious taradiddler!"
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
