Now for a little fun — more lexophiles

Earlier this year, I posted some of the entries in the New York Times’ Lexophile contest. Lexophile describes one who has a love for words and the Times has an annual competition for the best original lexophile

There’s a link below to that original On Second Thought. But since then, I’ve had a couple of readers submit their own “lexophile.”

Here’s one from a Bill Schoenborn: My optometrist lives in Alaska. He’s an optical Aleutian.

And here’s one from Richard Blatnick, a Ph.D:  The earth is bipolar.

Maybe they’ll enter their lexophile in the next New York Times contest.
