T is for Tim

Sometimes a word is fun just because there’s a Tim in it. Par example: Altimeter. Timid. Intimidate. Timothy. Timpani. Ultimatum. Timing. Stime. Lunchtime. Dinnertime. Suppertime.

But these are my all-time favorites:

Stimulate.
Intimate.
Ultimate.

Good words. Good times with my guy.

I’m lucky.

This is fabulous! You've got your own Timbit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timbits). And you sure are lucky, and so is he.

OMG, Helen, I have a Timbits box (empty, flattened snack pack) thumbtacked above my worktable! And yes, I savored every one of them in a naughty way.

Helen said...

I wasn't sure if Tim's had made it down to the U.S...

Sounds like you have a crush on this Tim fellow.

Helen: I first discovered them on a trip to Cape Breton. Then, back when the company forced Tim to stay in South Portland instead of Portland, in the midst of malls and highways, there was a Tim Horton's! That's where I insisted that I needed a box of Timbits. I had to wait in line for quite awhile, but it was worth it. I think they are scattered about northern New England just a (tim)bit.

Craig: Is that the SY Craig? Where, oh where, have you been? (And yeah, I gotta crush. He comes home today after 24 nights in Portland. But who's counting?)

That was great!

You need to try TimTams too. (http://www.arnotts.com.au/products/TimTam.aspx)

I've tried to come up with a dirty word with TIM in it, but my brain isn't working.

Great post

Helen said...

How about "timptation"? It's not very dirty though.

I've never heard of Timbits, TimTams nor Tim Hortons.

We may take a road trip to Canada this summer, so maybe I'll be enlightened.

Susan said...

What a great post! It has a timbre all its own.
