This Alphabe-Thursday is featuring the letter J as in Just. I don't mean the glorious adjective relating to all that is honorable and fair (though this is a great word), but "just" in the adverbial way.
I am promoting the usefulness and effectivity of the modifier "just." For example:
Which is closely related to the wonderfully precious, "Just because I love you."
How about, "You look just the same." A thoughtful lie which I am happy to receive on any occasion in this season of my life.
And "just in time." Evidently the preferred arrival schedule of wizards in Middle Earth. But also relating to each individual's own life scrapes and circumstances, and especially nice when having to do with love....
No more doubt of fear I've found my way
For love came just in time
You've found me just in time
And changed my lonely nights that lucky day
Just in time
Just in Time melody written by Jule Styne and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. You can hear a bit of this 1956 song made popular by Tony Bennett here, rerecorded as a duet with Michael Bublé (Duets: An American Classic, 2006).
There's "just a minute" (which conveniently means an undetermined amount of time, especially when spoken by a teenager involved in video gaming or an adult on a computer).
The ever popular silent, grumpy day response in our home.... "I'm just tired."
And the usually fun, though at times borderline, "just kidding."
So if you read through this blog and think I'm crazy to be participating in 3 Memes on Thursdays, remember that it's all... Just for Fun.
Speaking of "just for fun," I first encountered this on Facebook...
Jedi... another great J word!
