Word Nerd: Gigglemug

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsygigglemug definition Word Nerd via LaWhimsyGigglemug is Victorian slang for a habitually smiling face. Gigglemug is derived from giggle (laughing in a silly way) and mug (face).

Gigglemug is such a silly, fun, kooky Victorian slang word. I mean even seeing it or saying brings a smile to the face, thus making one a gigglemug – don’t ya just love it when a word provides it’s own definition! Gigglemug goes wonderfully along with other smiling words like riant and cachinnate.

When we allow ourselves to breathe and play, even if only for a little bit, we relax and things ease up just a bit. Yes, there are still worries and fears, but with a bit of gigglemugging we can recharge our systems and even strengthen our immune systems a bit. Also, it is always the right time to use weird Victorian slang!
