Why this word?
I like the variety in its meanings. “Croosle” could identify that sound people can’t help making when sleep-drugged in those sluggish moments of just barely being awake, or the excited, chattering not-whisper of someone eagerly sharing a secret, or the high-pitched, syrupy whine of a sycophant blowing verbal smoke up someone’s ass.
“Croosle”. It’s a cuttlefish of a word, owning three very different emotions that humans can express.
And I think that’s awesome.
