Hi and welcome to my blog. There are so many great blogs already, that I decided to start with a theme that everyone can relate to. Words!
So here's a word to curl your toes. Torture. This word probably conjures up different images for everyone. For some it may be a medieval rack but for others it may be a low carb diet!
The Oxford Dictionary describes Torture as the infliction of severe mental or physical pain as punishment or means of persuasion. Scary stuff!
Whilst cruelly incarcerated in the depths of Carrick Castle, Morven and Zest were victims of a dastardly blend of both physical and psychological torture.
And - just as an interesting sideline - the word torture is closely linked to the word labour. The French word trevail is derived from the Latin trepalaire - meaning to torture or inflict suffering or agony. So, if your work sucks, this could go a long way to explaining it!
Words, words, words. I'm never sick of words!
