Too many great words.

In Fellini's movie Eight and a Half, a reporter asks a long, rambling, convoluted question which the main characters answers with, "Perhaps." That scene opened my mind to the endless possibilities of the word 'perhaps' which I overuse.

I like thinking about the relationship between words like scintilla and scintillating, from the latin for spark and sparkling but I seldom get to use them. It might go to her head if I told her.
