Never Never, So Always Always: Wait, What?

Never Never

Always always,

there are more words for always

than there are for

never,

ceased,

not ever begun,

not ever achieved,

not ever dreamed,

not ever done.

And forever,

forever,

is therefore consistently more

important

than never ever ever.

Never say never,

always, say “Ever!”

Always.

Think of the synonyms for that! Forever, eternally, perpetually, incessantly, unfailingly…on and on it goes. But then consider the synonyms of the following:

Never.

Well…give me a few minutes for that.

tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…

I’m still thinking…

tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…tick…tock…

Okay, fine, I give up. Are there any?

Not unless you count “Ne’er”, which is totally like the same word, y’know? I mean, ewhmahgawd, naoway!

Way.

What ways to say…say way?

*Koff koff koff ahem*

As I was saying, there are no synonyms for never. (If you want to count ne’er, go ahead and I’ll say “there are few synonyms”) There are several for always. Of course, since always is an antonym for never, then all the synonyms for always are the antonyms for never, and the antonym for never, always, has few antonyms, if you can get your head around that twisty snake-sentence.

That isn’t a snake sentence; a snake sentence is one that’s like that but makes less sense as it sentences soundly south and up all around the page and on and on in curvy back-and-forth reading like you do when reading most Western languages; then it’s a coiled up snake-like those that the Mayans had on their stone carvings; you could also call this a run-on, and you would be right, because this sentence isn’t quite snaky enough to be a snake-sentence.

There.

And done.

And:

–Aidyl

…always.
