#MidnightMadness – 5/16/2017

scribbling-152216_960_720

Blogger friend Trent, from Trent’s World has graciously given us a new word to add to the dictionary.  Compty is the word, and it means… wanting to comment on a blog post but coming up empty when you try.  So here’s a poem I promised to write about it.  And just in case you missed it, this goes along with last night’s Midnight Madness; which you can check out here.

 

Compty

Is a very unique word

One you’ve probably

Never even heard

 

It’s a word made up

By our blogger friend Trent

Who decided to tell me

What this awesome word meant

 

So have no fear

This magical word is now here

Its meaning is simple and easy

And won’t leave you feeling queasy

 

It has to do with

Wanting to comment on a blog

During those frustrating times

When your brain is in a fog

 

It’s then that you can’t quite

Figure out what to say

So you just end up leaving

And going on your merry way

 

So thank you Trent

For sharing your word

It really is lovely

And not at all absurd

 

It’s too bad nobody else

Was brave enough to submit any more

Get with the program all you other bloggers

And don’t be such a bore!  😉

  1. That’s really a lovely word…needs to included in dictionary.
    Happens a lot with me. Sometimes I read something so awesome and I just scroll fast to comment section, but then I have no idea what to write.
    Awesome word you came up with Trent 🙂
    Nice poem, Michelle. 🙂

  2. Good word! It describes that feeling perfectly. I couldn’t come up with a word to add to your last blog post, and I suppose it was because I was feeling compty. 😉

  3. It looks like the other dozen or so people who read this before me were all compty 😉 Nice poem, and we’ll make it a true word yet!

  5. Lol…. well, now we at least have a word for it. 😉 Probably one of the best ideas yet, because I’m always coming up compty myself. Hope you’re having a good day. 🙂

  6. Well, there actually were a few comments before yours. I was lazy and slept in today, so I just now approved them. And somebody else came up with another word too. It’s in the comments section on yesterday’s Midnight Madness. Have a great day Trent! I’ll try to be more I uncompty in the future. You’d think as a writer, I’d have more to say. But I find I’m compty most days. Lol… 😉

  7. Ah yes, I forgot that you screen your calls, I mean moderate your comments.

  8. Ha ha….. yes I do. It wasn’t always this way, but one person had to screw up the normal process for everyone else. So now I’m forced to. 😉
