So y'all had some good guesses, but no one actually picked my veryfavorite word.
Renee's veryfavorite word:
Thwart: To oppose successfully; prevent from accomplishing a purpose; to frustrate or baffle
Katie was close when she said "svelte, followed closely by thwart." Unfortunately she flipped the order of my wordy love.
Side Note: I was shocked and amazed that when conducting an impromptu poll I discovered several of my friends were not familiar with the aforementioned thwart, and maybe not svelte, and good heavens they asked me to spell drivel.
Nor did they have a favorite word.
They do, however, play words with friends.
I'm confused and befuddled.
(another great one!)
(I'll stop now.)
I have to run now. My friends have traveled far and wide to be with me.
(And to watch their children graduate college.)
(But mostly to be with me.)
We have a lot of hilariousness to see to.
