Tee hee! I'm guessing that some of you will be wondering if I've lost the plot entirely as the word this week and in the previous entry were....well let's just say a little 'unusual'. I can assure you that I'm entirely fine although giggling myself silly with this little treasure.
This word tickled my fancy a couple of weeks ago and I've even printed it onto cards and placed it on my inspiration board.
The best thing is to say it out loud "Bumf, bumf, bumf!" and I bet you'll be surprised to learn what it means....
[noun] Unwanted or uninteresting printed matter
such as governmental forms, legal documents, junk mail, promotional pamphlets, etc.
When I first discovered this terrific little word, I must admit I was all abuzz to share it and sent a note to a few of my 'word zhushy' Gifters. One of you [I won't name names to protect the innocent] wittily replied that you would be putting a sign on your mailbox that read "No Bumf Allowed" - priceless!
Now I don't expect everyone to share my enthusiasm for this week's word but I would love to hear your thoughts - if you manage to put it into a blog post I believe you should earn triple WW points - whatever that means! Alternatively, grab the following image, print it off and give yourself the gift of a giggle whenever you see it or say it aloud - go on I dare you!
