Fanfaronade

Fanfaronade (noun): Swaggering; empty boasting; blustering manner or behavior; ostentatious display.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this word was:


The “fan” part. Followed by…


The “faronade” part, which reminded me of serenade, which reminded me of something related to Giant that you shouldn’t be aware of unless you know me.

My mind is a scary place to be.
