      Physiognomy.
      I remember when I was small, my Mum would sometimes say I had a miserable Physog, if I had been crying (I was a very emotional child!!!). I never really understood what Physog was until I was older and realised she had just shortened the word Physiognomy. Its a nice word to say!

    Shakaka.

    It's an Ace Ventura reference. Anytime I feel like swearing, or get mad about something I just say OH Shakaka! and it makes me smile.

      Hey, I like it! LOL!  Now when I get annoyed, I am going to say OH,Shakaka, and I bet it will diffuse any tension. Wish I had known this word when I came across a rude ticket agent in Texas who gave me a little scolding, which astonished a young dad with his son, but I just ignored her as I didn't want to add tension to my trip. Oooh, Shakaka!!!roll

      My favorite word, is Namaste. smile

    I think a good word is the verb "CAN' do    something
    instead of saying the opposite "can't"  BB

    Please and thank you
    They are very under valued and can be used in a nice postive way or even in a sarcastic/ nasty way if u see fit.
