de • low • cious

Yep that’s my word! Well, really it is my Aunt Betty’s word, but I am stealing it and spreading it. My aunt has always had a way of taking normal, everyday words and making them sound way cooler. For example, when she answers the phone she does not just say hi, she says Hiya! And when she thinks something tastes good, she calls it delowcious.

Delowcious is similar to the word delicious, but even better and way more fun to say. It is pronounced (di-‘lau-shǝs) and is personally defined as anything, mainly food, but technically anything that is amazing. I say anything, because I have this great story about a girlfriend of mine, who also has her own unique interpretation of the english language and the world for that matter. One time we were at the beach in California, and she went into the ocean for a dip. As she was returning to our towels, a fellow male beach goer asked her how the water was. Her response… “Mmmm, it was delicious.” I immediately started cracking up. It was classic, and I will never forget it. From that day forward the definition of delicious forever changed in my book, and so now has the word delowcious. On a separate and somewhat unrelated note, that same beach was closed down the next day for polluted water. NOT DELOWCIOUS!

You will find I use the word a lot throughout my blogging. If I call it delowcious I am trying to say I tried it and I loved it so much, because it was either so delicious or so beautiful that it was worthy enough to be upgraded to delowcious status based on my own personal opinion and sometimes the opinions of others that I value. But I try not to get too hung up on what others think. So for the most part, I tried it and loved it.

I encourage you to learn it, love it, use it and spread the word at your own free will. Enjoy!
