It strikes me that a lot of cool words begin with "th." Thrice comes to mind. We all say, "I tried to call you twice last night" but who ever says "I called you thrice, so you must not have been home"?
Thud. Thong. Thump. Thirst. Thorax. Throes. Thrives. Thirsty. Thermos. Thieves. Thrombus. Thronged.
David Letterman used to say that any word with the "k" sound was funnier than any other word that mean the same thing. I am all for using th- words as thoroughly as I can. And of course, you can find plenty more of them in any Thesaurus.
