I adore words — my favorite word in the world is snack.  I love how it smacks in the mouth.  I especially love to hear the flight attendant announce it.

(One might be surprised that my favorites don’t start with “F”.)

After some deliberation, however, I’ve come to the conclusion that all of my favorite words/terms  start with “V”  

 (in the order they pop into my vapid mind):
