is your doppleganger, mini me,
that no one, I mean no one can see,
because he or she is imaginary.

Saving bad dates for multiple centuries:
the fearless, fictional bunburies.

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

  1. Ha, I like that one.

    So it's like when someone calls off work saying, "I can't come. My Aunt Margaret's cat Snow Mittens is sick.", and there's no aunt or cat or snow or mittens? It's all just a load of bunburies.

    1. Oh no! Your bunburies aren't supposed to pick on you. Perhaps it's the evil twin of your bunbury?

  4. A bunbury is the most important thing to have in society. Life would be dull if you had to attend everything you were ever invited to, or sit through every boring conversation without relief.

    1. True, a bunbury can be quite helpful in a sticky situation, but telling the truth is good too...

      Thanks for visiting!

  8. Ah, yes, Bunbury invented by Oscar Wilde in 'The Importance of being Earnest'. Lots of fun to be had with the idea.

  10. Rachel, I wanted to leave a comment for this post several weeks ago. Unfortunately my friend has been suffering from leprosy and I've been trying to visit him as much as possible. He lives in the country, and he doesn't get much of an internet signal.

    1. Your poor friend! Please do visit him. Being with friends in their time of need is much more important than leaving me a comment on my blog.

Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
