    Yesterday’s guardian had ‘Eustachian tube’ as an answer and now I’m just tired.

    what was the clue tho
    a hit tune, almost because somehow it connects to the listener

    (it's an anagram, but a slightly ropey one).

    i hate this

    I like words that are what they mean.

    Awkward is pretty awkward to write.

    Esoteric always seemed kind of esoteric (at least at a lower education level).

    Cutesy somehow feels cutesy.

    Polysyllabic has a whopping five syllables.

    Sesquipedalian literally means "a long word" (I had to cheat and look this one up, but I knew I'd heard it before).

    Grandiloquent? It certainly is.

    Obfuscation definitely doesn't seem clear or straightforward.

    Oblong feels kind of round and wobbly.

    I also like words that technically aren't onomatopoeias but "feel" like it. Round feels round, soft feels soft, sharp feels sharp, sludge and mud feel gross and sloppy, slow feels like it takes a while to say, quick comes out fast, etc. etc. etc. (I just learned these are called phonesthemes - neat!)

    How about “monosyllabic”? It has 5.

    Easy - you just gotta marry someone else also with a moderate-level white-collar income and live together. Then you can have SO MANY avocados, like you don't even know!

    wise decision

    Thundercats was a great cartoon

    until I watched it again and learned that it was not a great cartoon

    My favorite word has always been "snacks."

    There's something about that s-n combo that just feels really pleasant to say, and also seems like a more rare sound in general. Then you add the crisp bite of the k, and end the word with a final s for a really tasty finale.

    And, you know, it means food, often lots of it, in bite-size portions, and probably not all that great for you. Top tier word, would vocalize again.
