Living words: resilient

Current allocation: I would not know this word from before. it is quite new to me.

dictionary deffinition:
(of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.

(of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.
1640s, "springing back," from Latin resilientem "inclined to leap or spring back," present participle of resilire (see resilience). Figuratively, of persons, from 1830. Related: Resiliently.

Sounding of word:

i am being silly again that is what i meant
again there is a silly with
something silly appears one more time

Negative: it sounds very like mathematic
Positive: it is like a insurance of its quality. it is a good thing - also to be silly sometimes.

Creative writing:
again i am laughing. again i am breaking my back on laughter. i laugh myself to death
he read something silly and he ended/died (laugh himself to death)

New definition: dare to bend and curve/change to see something new - after action with a detail/being. Like an affection.
