Attention Scrabble players, this is a real word that can be wrought with a Y a Z and two ?’s! Yippee! And even though one does not need to know the meaning of a word whilst racking up these 35 to 70 points (play the colored squares people!!!), such is provided below.

Fun Fact:

Gray Matter *


Gray matter…

…contains most of the brain’s neuronal cell bodies. The grey matter includes regions of the brain involved in muscle control, and sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, speech, decision making, and self-control.

Ergo, this blog is titled Gray Matter, a repository of sensory perceptors on overdrive as you see, hear, memorize, emote, speak, decide to share, and lose all self-control when reading these posts, coming to you no more than three times a week, and sometimes less.

The grey matter in the spinal cord is split into three grey columns.

The anterior grey column yadah, yadah, yadah — and which I call #MorphologyMonday
The posterior grey column yadah, yadah, yadah — and which I call #BadWordWednesday
The Lateral grey column yadah, yadah, yadah — and which I call #FixItFriday

This blog, a massaging of your gray matter, three times a week.
Get smarter. Laugh harder.
