One of my favorite words is, shenanigans. Shenanigan (singular) is defined as:
1) a devious trick used especially for an underhand purpose.
2) a tricky or questionable practices or conduct —usually used in plural.
3) a high-spirited or mischievous activity —usually used in plural.
I use the word, shenanigans in my writing (usually as a plural) because it sounds so much better to have my characters up to some shenanigans in my stories rather than having them just being mischievous.
My MS Word synonym finder tells me that I can also use the word, monkeyshines to replace shenanigans.
I have NEVER heard of that word before, but I LIKE it.
I mean is that another GREAT word, or what?
Life just keeps getting better and better today.
Pathetic that I feel this way, but true.
