Random Emails Leads to Wild Banter

One of my emails I received today came from Thomasville. I love their furniture as evidence of my choices in my bedroom, kitchen and end tables but that is not the purpose of this blog entry.

After further reading, Thomasville has a line of furniture named The Sililoque Furniture Collection. Although I am not fond of this collection, I love the word. For only reasons that my brain can knows, the word soliloquy has been stuck in my head since reading this silly email.
Soliloquy. Soliloquy. Doesn't it just roll off your tongue? Shouldn't we use this word and words like it in every day language just because it sounds so beautiful? Soliloquy. It makes me smile.
Shakespeare used the soliloquy in order to reveal his characters' personal thoughts, emotions, and motives. Even if you are not versed in the readings of Shakespeare, we all know the famous "To be or not to be" speech.
I am guilty of daily soliloquies. Is it still a soliloquy if my cats are in the same room?
