Self-Discovery

I have just discovered the most beautiful word that I have ever encountered. This is a word that so captures the deep essence of such an integral part of me that it seems as if this word was first uttered in the same moment I drew my first breath in this world. It captures me, it is me. You must forgive me. To see oneself crystalized in one simple word, in one single arrangement of meaning in text....is an experience ironically quite beyond words to convey, even if one were to wrap the whole of language around it like a silk sheet. It is too perfect, too precise. So what is that word which has so released me to the fullness of my voluble nature? See for yourselves:

circumlocution - \sir-kum-lo-KYOO-shun\, noun:
The use of many words to express an idea that might be expressed by few; indirect or roundabout language.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Ben: the Circumlocutor. This is his blog and these are his words, and they are legion.
Enjoy.

That is to pronounce with a french accent, but I think that there's no big difference, n'est ce pas ?

Missed you at bible study today, buddy.
I think it went ok, though, so that was good.
Get well soon.
Don't drool too much.

aww, ben...I was gonna call ya, see how you were doing but I realized you may not be that coherent. Hope your mouth doesn't hurt too bad cause you need it for a lot of things...like talking and eating and yelling...etc.....

And biting. Don't forget biting. I'm actually just about as coherent as usual (which isn't saying much, I know). My mouth isn't bleeding anymore and I only have a little swelling, nothing really noticable, so even though I still have to take it kinda easy when it comes to food and so forth, I'm more or less myself. I actually would have come to Bible study if I hadn't slept in (sorry guys). Oh, and if any of you want to come and visit me, that would be awesome beyond words. Well...I guess that's about it. I'll check in with you guys later. By the way, is there any way I can get fudge out of this?


...yelling? When do I ever yell?

I'd totally bring you fudge but we're going out of town tomorrow. However, if you are still in pain come Monday, I'd be happy to bring you some...:)

What can I say bro? I'm a dry well...

...but I suppose I could whip something up, just for you. Stay tuned...of course every time I say that it's weeks before I post next...but not this time....I swear.

Sorry Ben, I just had to do it since I am getting no hits in the Japan-Mission-trip-pictures blog and I am jealous because your blog is so popular. If I could I would go into your blogger accoun and erase every single post and blog you have. Watch out.

You're a very vengeful person, you know that? I like that in a man. Watch out.
