Well, the stressed syllables may be a little off, but it works for me: misevents

Ah 2sleepy , remember! 7night is Hogwash!! A little tsuwm offgame joke. That's why I cried YES! yes yes. (Hog seems to have passed away.)

This "game" is about numbers making part or hidden of/in a word that is not about numbers.

Oh , Jackie, Oh os O4 Oh......... grin

Misevents is a word? Ain't is a word. Irregardless is a word. Unfriend is a word. But misevents?

Oh, OK. Maybe. It's certainly no worse that 5orite or 1ting.

Learn something new every day (one might hope).

Yeh, you have to stretch it cause you do not pronounce it mis-évents , you pronounce this mis-evénts, so you never really hear the seven.
mi7ts.
7of9 I mean we's up to nine.

Are you still snowed in?!?

Okay, there's lots for 9, so let's all find one related to our profession/vocation/day job/whatever...

stanine

Amusingly, it follows the roolz and the "nine" is not 9, but itself deals a lot with 9s... :0)

abbreviation of standard nine Yes, you hardly can go wrong with this one. I looked it up, thought it was something like amphetamine or some other drug, smile

Yes, great, snow still hanging on and ice and hazardous bike rides. People who are buried in snow every year can't imagine how boring a winter without snow is. People look more alive.
