I corrected him, and said it's "in-appropriate" or "improper."
I immediately woke up with this overwhelming urge to make a mental list of all the words I could think of that begin with the word/letters "imp."
I say overwhelming, because, try as I might to go back to sleep, or even think of anything else (like, perhaps a random song, I almost always wake up with one of those in my head), I couldn't, and the mental list basically started itself.
Of course, "imp" itself is a word, and the second word I came up with happened to be "imply," because it's an easy follower.
I kept going, and going, until I was came up with "impressionistically" and "imperialistically," when I decided, Hey, lady, you need to limit yourself to "base" words and stop adding suffixes because that could be considered cheating, and it's not fair to do that to yourself.
I decided also, at that point, the madness needed to stop. I'd be going for at least ten minutes.
So, I rolled over and woke up my husband. I told him about my game, and we laughed about it a good while, and about how I'm kind of a nerd, but he really loves me all the more because of it... and then he started playing this game as well.
I got distracted for a few moments by Spencer kicking and my urge to go to the bathroom... and shower. And in the shower, it continued. Until I decided that "percolate" is a fun word, even if it doesn't start with "imp."
So... there you have it. I have issues... and a fun list of words.
(These are the ones I could remember to type up and share)
