Catch-22

I have come across this word, catch-22 from a movie that had the same name. The word describes a paradoxical situation in which in order to fight the rule, you have to accept it.

I like to think about things when I shower. Last night, a word occurred to me when I was showing. The word was “oriented”. This is a word I am familiar with and I hear it all the time. However, I’ve hardly ever used that word in speech.

I tried to pronounce it. But I found myself having a hard time to do it correctly. That’s when I came to realize that if I can’t pronounce a word, I don’t use it. The reason is that I am not comfortable using it. The problem is I will never be comfortable with it if I don’t use it. Isn’t this a catch-22?
