Word Fun Monday

It’s Monday, and while I (as I’ve mentioned before) find that inspiring, many people look at the work week ahead and think oy!

So here’s a little fun to brighten your day 🙂

My family is very game oriented, and especially word-game oriented (in case you haven’t figured that out from my many posts about how much I love games :))  My sister is visiting with her kids, and last night at dinner the following questions were posed:

Only 2 words in the English language contain uu.  What are they?

Only 3 words in the English language begin with dw.  What are they?

What are the 2 longest one-syllable words in English?  (I’ll give you a hint – one is 8 letters and one is 7 and they both begin with s – also, this game refers to root words, so no prefixes, suffixes or verb endings etc.)

Technically I should be offering a prize for the first person to guess all three, but I’m fresh out of prize ideas… unless someone wants one of those nameless dead sea creatures I mentioned on Friday (she said hopefully)?  For the time being, you will have to be satisfied with the fame of being the person connected with this blog who is That Smart!  If you can answer all three I will be impressed and if you think up a reasonable prize for yourself I’ll consider it 🙂

Ready, set, GO!  I can’t wait to see if you can guess the words!
