You may have noticed that I don’t provide definitions of the selected words. I omit to do that on purpose so that you can make your own research and find other synonyms. I enjoy that process a lot, and naturally I think that you might too.

Once again you are free to chose either of the provided words, or more or all of them.

Have fun!
