Perilymph

I spotted today's word whilst looking up last week's. Perilymph is the liquid inside your ear which sloshes about and makes you dizzy if you spin round really fast. (Come on, I never actually said these posts wold be useful, did I?)

If you'd like to spin round fast without the sloshing part, take a look here.

If you'd like to read about me confessing to a couple of writing mistakes, have a look here.

Damn! That's another word I can't use, because if I ever find a place for it in one of my novels, you'll know exactly where it came from!!

And the reason I can't do wild rides at an amusement park...

Hi Patsy - it's certainly an interesting word ... and one where on occasions I'd definitely have to use! Great word ... cheers Hilary

Probably will not find many times I use that word, although people likely think I am a bit dizzy at times.

I almost got that way watching the monument. I guess I'll look for reprint publishers, maybe that will solve it or make it worse.

I don't have to spin around too fast for my perilymph to slosh about. I now have sympathy for little old ladies who fall over.

Patsy said...

If you avoid all the words I use, you'll have a very short novel, Paige!

Patsy said...

I can't do them either, Alex - but that's just because I'm a wimp.

Patsy said...

I hope you can work it into something soon, Hilary.

Patsy said...

I'm sure the same has been thought about me, Neil.

Patsy said...

One or the other, Oscar.

Dizzy spells are no fun, Maggie. Hope it doesn't happen too often.
