You must have forgotten your Ballade for Banjolele, Op. 433?
Do what I must do, and let what must happen happen.

Oh yes that is a good one. I remember my son had a kids book that used the word. It always made us smile.

My wife came across the word peduncle in the instructions of her 'tiny' crafting project today (pictured below). Can't say I would ever use it, but it was a fun find!

Discombobulated

I have actually started using the word combobulated (at least around my wife who understands my sense of humor). "Hold on honey, I need to get combobulated before we go!"
