Where This Meets That

Monotony Control for a Rainy Day

I love wordplay. In fact, some days, it’s what gets me through.

So, here’s a fun little trick to draw a chuckle or two out of a gloomy day.


Whenever you hear or say the word “various”, replace it in your mind with the word “nefarious”.

Here’s a quick example:

Wife: “You were gone for a while. What were you doing?”
Husband: “Oh, various things.”

Now, re-read the husband’s line, substituting in “nefarious”, and you have a whole new ball game. You can now almost picture the Dracula cape on the husband!

Childish and odd, yes, but simple and free. 🙂

    Here are some more various plays on words, so to speak:

    A quicker way of saying “a rest stop” would be “jail” (also known as “arrest stop”).

    Politicians’ names should be shortened. I just call Barack Obama “Barama” and Mitt Romney “Mittney.”

    Thank you for tolerating my comment.
