Sometimes, life’s just too … well, absurd and funny not to share.
I like Kickstarter and have contributed small amounts to several campaigns. For my donation to Wordnick, I got to adopt a word. Dwindle. I adopted dwindle. We all probably know what it means, but it’s the sound that gets to me. Really. If you pronounce the word out loud, you’ll see what I mean.
And you can’t confuse it. It has few synonyms: decrease, diminish, lessen, falls. That’s it pretty much it. And hardly as onomatopoeic.
Now. How’s that for a fancy word? Onomatopoeic. Gotta love words.
What’s even better, I receive a reward sticker. Which led me to wondering exactly what I might do with a reward sticker that read dwindle. Stick it to my forehead? On my car’s back window?
I’m pretty sure I’m not getting a metal. The announced reward is below.
We’re thrilled that you’ve adopted ‘dwindle’!
The reward stickers have been printed, and will be on the way to you soon!
If your reward included a backer medal, that’s being designed now, and we’ll be showing the design in next Monday’s Kickstarter backer update. For medal backers, we’ll be mailing your stickers and the medal together.
