How words feel in your mouth.

So I was thinking of epiphanies, and the word “Eureka” came up.

You've got it

That word sounds like an infection, or a pain associated with vomit, or something horrible and medical.

The doctor said solemnly, “Eureka, you’ve got it. An acute case, in fact.”

So then I thought of all the nice-sounding medical words that are actually really nasty things.

Like evil aunties in Roald Dahl books

And then I put those two things together.

words are fun
