Here is my entry for Becky’s for October Square Kinda challenge.
I couldn’t figure out what to do for Becky’s last challenge. So I went with the third long word in the English language. And that word Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious was made famous by the original Mary Poppins movie
The word is a compound word, and said by Richard Lederer in his book Crazy English to be made up of these words: super- “above”, cali- “beauty”, fragilistic- “delicate”, expiali- “to atone”, and -docious “educable”, with all of these parts combined meaning “Atoning for educability through delicate beauty.” The Oxford English Dictionary first records the word (with a spelling of “supercaliflawjalisticexpialadoshus”) in a column by Helen Herman in the Syracuse University Daily Orange, dated March 10, 1931. In the column, Herman states that the word “implies all that is grand, great, glorious, splendid, superb, wonderful”.
I figured I have watched that movie at least 34 times. I’ve had the sound track since I was a young kid So I definitely heard that way more than 34 times. One of my favorite songs from Mary Poppins is Feed the bird.
And of course, I simply had to add the Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious video.
This is been such a wonderfully fun month of squares. Let give Becky a big hand for hosting this challenge. hand 💕
