Teeth into the wind
There are two things (other than the usual exclusions, like wife, friends and family) for which I have a true passion, and they are words and dogs. Words and dogs are both unconditional, loyal and steadfast.
Recently this dog came into my universe and showed me the meaning of the word INTREPID, by bravely traveling 4,000+ miles by air, through blizzards, reroutings and delays and landing without complaint in a strange setting, giving and looking for love with every step of her grand entrance at SFO United Receiving . As I look at this picture and roll the word INTREPID around in my brain I wonder if I am using enough of a word to properly translate what I wanted say about her. A quick GOOGLE has put my fears to rest.
Take a minute and read each of these synonomic-descriptors in turn and as you say each word slowly to yourself, look at her picture.
“Fearless, unafraid, undaunted, dauntless, undismayed, unalarmed, unflinching, unshrinking,
unblenching, unabashed, bold, daring, audacious, adventurous, dashing, heroic, dynamic,
spirited, mettlesome, confident, indomitable, brave, courageous, valiant, valorous,
stouthearted, lionhearted, stalwart, plucky, gutsy, spunky, game, and ballsy.”
Yeah, I think I that’s a good word. Don’t you?
