This morning, as my stubby little fingers hovered over the keyboard awaiting a spot of creative brain activity, the word 'defenestration' (in a Belgian Poirot-like accent) popped into my mind.
As I was panning to write about the bacterial farts that create the holes in cheese, I was somewhat surprised.
It's a grand word, I admit, but I was totally at a loss as to what it meant.
I refused point blank to resort to Wikipedia, or some similar site, for a definition and resorted to some good old fashioned brain wracking in order to work out it's meaning.
'I'm a smart chap' I thought. 'I should be able to work this out!'
And I did!
Of course it means the act of throwing someone or something from a window.
But it begs the question 'why did I think of it in the first place?'
It's not as if the bacteria in cheese - the bacteria that farts, thus creating all those holes - would ever want to throw anything out of a window ... even if there were windows in cheese.
And why would that word pop into my mind in a Belgian accent?
I have no answers, I'm afraid, other than perhaps I'm losing my sanity. After all who in their right minds would contemplate writing an article about cheese full of farty holes? Perhaps that is what pushed me over the edge.
Anyway, it's nice to be back after my short break!
