My favourite word for extreme pleasure, enjoyment, adventure and more. Often used it on soup. Love this word and love your poem my friend, congratulations on your win. Have been scarce of late - March - Elias had a major operation, May - we were burgled whilst on Holiday and whilst asleep in our bedroom, June - I have just come out of Hospital after an emergency op. _ hope things get a little better from here on! Hope you and the family are well. Warm regards, hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

I'm so sorry to hear of your bad luck, Jenny. being burgled is not nice, but health problems can be even worse. I hope that both your and Elias's operations have been successful. In the meantime both my son and myself have had surgery for BCC cancer. We are fair skinned and have to avoid staying in the sun. Take care and stay safe. Warm regards and hugs // paul

I am shocked I never perused the S list of winners. I thought i had seen all of them but this is new for me. so cool!! Congrats. By the way, I used to joke with my students that I could say that long word backwards. Then I would turn around and have my back to them as I repeated Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. haha

That's not the longest word tho... Your students may come back at you with "Smiles" either because theres a mile between each S or because S goes on for miles ... Ha ha!! Lol
