It doesn't even have to be one you use, alot----just, one that, maybe, makes you giggle, or one that sounds powerful, to you; or, one that just sounds COOL, to you.....

One of MY favorites is "discombobulated". It "serves" alot of purposes----it sometimes makes me chuckle, when I, or others, say it, and it's one of those words that sort-of sounds / looks like, what it MEANS (it means confused, and it looks like a confusion of letters)!

approximately - I like its sound. My tongue feels good when I say it.

perfectamente (Spanish) - A very satisfying word to pronounce.

Onomatopoeia - It's sorta rhythmic, when spoken----it's got a "beat".

The French verb 'piaffer', which means to 'paw the ground' (as in a horse etc). I sometimes use it in English to describe someone getting agitated, excited.

I love that, too! I mean crème brûlée. That's one of my favorite sweets. It's a hard word to pronounce because both 'r' and 'u' are pronounced quite differently in French. But it's fun to try that.
