    • Yeah…well; at a certain point of time in my life, I stuck to this particular theory and followed it strictly. But then thought over it layer and I was like… Well we are hoomans, and it’s ok if we expect and get disappointed at times… we let the other person know what we expect, we might have 50% chances of disappointment; if we don’t, chances grow exponentially upto 100%…

    • Even I was like…holy moly…so this is what this is called instead of that common nickname (hashtag)…imagine saying people to tag their work using octothorpe… they might as well tag themselves in some dictionary…

      But this whole 4 words thing has really been amazing so far (for me at least)… glad you liked it!!! Thank you for the same.

      • I’m truly excited … I have a passion for exploring words and lament that we don’t use as many as we should in everyday “parlance” 😇

      • Well well… here we are now…As a school kid I had this knack to use such difficult and uncommon words that my teacher used to scold me. It amuses me now thinking how hard time I was giving my teachers…
        I guess I mentioned this story somewhere in my blog where I first wrote 4 Words Daily- the beginning I guess…

        Anyways, the journey is interesting, and so is being a “logophile”…

      • The child mind has room for a seemingly infinite number of words…I’m disappointed you were scolded.
        Yet, your passion emerges now regardless! Hooray!

      • It was bound too! Ultimately the teacher had some regard for me, I guess. Maybe I taught her a few words she might be teaching right now…
