The British comedian, Miranda Hart, has just been on our screens in the sitcom, Miranda, which is about life as the proprietor of a joke shop, daughter of the odious “What I Call”, Patricia Hodge; and would-be lover of Gary, the chef.
In a recent episode when about to launch into her naughty child schtick, she was waylaid by a word.
“Moist”, she said, looking deep into the camera, mouth as round as she could make it, eyes glittering with mischief.
“Don’t you just love that word?” she asked, “Moist”. Then for good measure, she said it a few times more. “Moist”. And that was it, joke done.
We all know there are magic words, right? Words that change something in the uttering. Sometimes the magic is personal, sometimes, universal.
Here’s an example of a universally magic word which I’m going to divulge for free just because I like you: impromptu.
I’ve experimented with this word, and I tell you it is an odd bird who can resist its allure. Attach it to your invitations, and 9 out of 10 people will say “yes” to whatever you’re requesting.
What are your magic words?
