If you have been reading my blog long you know I am sort of a word nerd. I actually read the dictionary for fun. Always have. I love words. I love a thesaurus. I remember the first time I got a thesaurus I was mesmerized for weeks. I looked up every "cool" word I knew and learned all the synonyms for the word. Looking up every single synonym to make sure I knew all the definitions.
So today I thought I'd share some word fun facts. You can bust these little tidbits out on your unsuspecting friends and family and everyone will think you're smarter. Or not.
Hey, at least your children will think it's cool info. Or not.
O.k. so I will think you're cool. How bout that? We good now? Moving right along.

Therein contains 10 words without rearranging any of the letters! There, here, ere, in, the, he, her, therein, herein, rein.
The only city in the United States spelled using all vowels is Aiea, Hawaii. Also, "q" is the only letter of the alphabet not used in the United States.
Subcontinental is the only word that uses each vowel, only once, and in reverse alphabetical order.
O.k., I'll stop now. I could do this all day.
Happy Triple F Friday!
