Not a pleasant word…

Merriam-Webster:

“To exude something often in a faintly repellent manner.”

My initial reaction to the Daily Prompt ‘ooze’ was one of repulsion.

Sure, you can ‘ooze with confidence’.  A turtle can crawl through the ‘ooze’.  You ‘ooze’ moisture when you sweat.  Evolutionists might say we climbed out of the ‘primordial ooze’.

My mind turns to words like ‘seep’ and ‘percolate’.

If you have a septic system (we do), and have replaced a tank and drain fields, then you probably know about the importance of percolation.  Basically, there is a lot of oozing involved.

And there you have it.
