New words to live by: “Furture”

Time, once again, for New words to live by. This is a word or phrase not currently in use in the U.S. English lexicon, but might need to be considered. Other words, such as obsurd, crumpify, subsus, flib, congressed, and others, can be found by clicking on the tags below. Today’s New Word is created by taking two nouns and creating a new word. Without further waiting and just in time for the new year, furture.

Furniture, n. 1. the moveable articles, such as desks, tables, chairs, beds, sofas, etc., required for decorating a house, apartment, office, or some similar space. 2. apparatus, fittings, or accessories for something.

Future, n. time that is to be or come hereafter. Not past. Not present.

Furture, n. all the moveable objects, fittings, and other baggage brought from the past through the present and into the future. For example, a grudge.

Used in a sentence: Despite Bob’s claims that this new year was going to be fresh start, he always brought with him too much furture to make the future a fresh start. In particular, he still polished a grudge against his ex-wife that he could not let go, and that was only one of the pieces of the past that he drug through the present and into the future like a piece of old, ratty furniture scratching against a hardwood floor.

Most recent new word: grungle.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Tea kettle”

Your image returns, /

a tea kettle’s whistle: /

loud, whiny, undone.

Monday morning writing joke: “The right block”

Genie: “You have one wish left.”

The writer thought about it for a few minutes. He looked around the bar. He had already messed up twice and didn’t want to screw up this third wish. Finally, he said, “I want to forget my writer’s block.”

“Is that your wish?”

“Yes, I wish to forget my writer’s block.”

The genie disappeared in a puff of smoke. The writer paid his bill and left the bar, happy to know that he would now be able to write again, once he remembered where he lived.

Haiku to you Thursday: “A thousand stars”

A thousand stars wake /

in your smile each morning /

each bright with passion.
