I don't know about you, but we've been having kind of a wet week around here. Our weather prompted the word for this week: drizzle [driz-uh l], a noun meaning "a very light rain". It can also be used as a verb meaning "to rain gently; sprinkle" and "to pour in a fine stream".
I love the sound of the word. Drizzle. Drizzzzzzle. What a fun word to say! I also love its rhyming companions, fizzle and sizzle. :) Here are a few sentences I came up with, using the word of the week:
While I'd much rather have sunshine,
I do prefer drizzle to a downpour.
The weather forecast says
it's going to drizzle all week long.
I love to drizzle honey on my peanut butter toast!
How would you use the word drizzle? What are some words that you find fun to say or hear?
