Forsythia is an entertaining word for me to say. Of course, it's this particular flowering plant. My Nana always loved saying forsythia, especially because I used to mispronounce it growing up. I would say forthythia. :)
My mom once called one of our cats a "Rabble-rouser" and it made me laugh so hard because this term is usually used in a political context. But it can also just mean, "troublemaker". So, in this context she was correct.
Now it is one of my favorite words and I use it frequently to describe the cats when they get in those wily moods :)

"Darcy was clever. He was at the same time haughty, reserved, and fastidious, and his manners, though well-bred, were not inviting." — Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
I've been reading and watching a lot of Jane Austen lately and love the way this word sounds; I have decided to add it to my vocabulary.
Serendipity is one of my favorite words. It's fun to say and sounds as happy as its meaning. We live in a neighborhood developed in the 1970s and many of the streets in our area have really pleasant names -- Carefree; Whimsical; Fascination; and yes, Serendipity Circle.
