Brinjoy?? You may ask what the heck is that?  Is there such a word?  I think not, it is a cheap rip-off of the word enjoy which is derived strategically from the word joy.

I fabricated the word in Jersey City style where the letter g gets dropped sometimes from the end of the word; for example, as said with an accent, bringin instead of the proper word bringing.

If you bring joy to someone you are practicing “brinjoy.”

Allow me to encourage you by inviting you to bring joy (brinjoy) to someone whether it be the next person you see in the street, at work, or at a mall as people shuffle briskly during the madness of this season; some completely stressed out just wanting to get home.  You can brinjoy fast and for free simply by flashing a peaceful and happy smile.

You can also brinjoy via a text, or a phone call to a long lost friend or distant family member.  Make the lost art of a phone call and simply let them know you are thinking of them.

How about the gift of an inexpensive poinsettia?  I recently brought a fire-engine red poinsettia to an elderly lady whom I met briefly only one time, it completely brightened her day and the thought of bringing her an unexpected gift brought her joy.  She could not believe the seasonal plant was for her.

The joy on her face was as if a squirrel found a pound of already shelled acorns at the bottom of a tree within a few feet of its nest.  I enjoyed this act of brinjoy before I even gave it a name.  I enjoyed her delighted reaction.  Now that I gave it a label, I will make it a point to brinjoy at least once a day.

Brinjoy.  I’d love to see it appear in the Webster Dictionary as a new and useful word.

Again, the next place you go…..brinjoy.  You will be happy you did.

    So was this word created in Jersey City or from a guy from Jersey City that lives somewhere in Northern NJ. And why isn’t roofing material called Jersey City siding?
