  1. Hello!

    I love your entire word list, especially ‘Grimalkin’. What a wonderful word for a kitty!

    Hey, I have one for you, the opposite of failure: Achievemephobia, the fear of success. I wonder how many of our fellow writers suffer from said affliction.

    Take care, and thank you for enlightening us all with a fabulous list!
    Paul 🙂

    1. Thanks for taking the time to comment, Paul! Cat owners should call thier pet cats ‘Grimalkin’ from now on 🙂
      The fear of success? Wow, that’s interesting.
      Always a pleasure for word nerds to show off their vocabulary! 😀
