I Lust Verbs

Maybe it’s just me. It wouldn’t be the first time I lusted after something/someone no one else gave two shakes about. But every time I read a strong, creative verb in a sentence, I drool a little. Yes, it’s gross. But while I dribble down my chin, I reread the entire sentence to experience that lust again. And again and again.

No need to question my sanity – I checked out of reality long ago. But my lust has stirred in me the need to make a list of my favorite verbs since lists also make me lust. The following are just a few of my favorites in present tense. Some of them look like nouns, but could be used as verbs.

lance
lick (no, I don’t write erotica!)
arc
echo
loll (not to be confused with LOL)
scar
prick
sheet
slice

That’s all I can think of at the moment. What are some of your favorite verbs?

    –j–

  2. agitate
    decapitate
    appreciate
    exfoliate
    regurgitate
    eviscerate
    confiscate
    ruminate
    interrogate
    laminate
    collaborate

    Hey, they all rhyme!

    Gosh, I love strong verbs, and I’m constantly trying to weed out my weak ones. Too much smiling and looking going on.

    You’re cracking me up! If I come up with any more, I’ll post them.
