    Word List - onomatopoeic words

    I still can't say that 'o' word correctly - but I enjoy those kinds of words - words that sort of sound like what it is/does

    Please add to my short list:

    plop
    whoosh
    sizzle
    fizzle
    crackle
    quack
    squish

    By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
