L’équilibre de miel.

November 18, 2010

Huhnee.

The balance of honey. In my daily commutes to/fro work, I have gradually acquired this habit of playing out with words just to alleviate boredom. And just last night on my home from work, I realized that the word honey, is an equilibrium in itself. A neutral word.

Now, here’s why.

When you do a backslang on the word honey, you’d get yenoh.
Yenoh.
Yenoh.
Ye is used sometimes to denote yes. Noh is roughly, well, the word no. So that’s a yes, and a no, in a single word, making the word honey a ying-yang in the lexicon parallel universe.

 

I was bored. So don’t you dare judge me.
