• Hey, it's easy to write using the same word over and over. The girl was happy. The dog got his food by happy coincedence. I want to eat a Happy Meal. But good writers can use similar words to spice up their language. And REALLY good writers can do so while using these different words correctly. The girl was joyous. The dog got his food by felicitous coincedence. I want to eat a Happy Meal. (That one's trademarked) And if you get really good at it, you can sound all pretentious and annoy everyone. YES!!!! So, how much of a walking thesaurus are you?
