Twitches


This car is my #1 Twitch
Today the secret word is Twitch. A twitch is a reaction to muckery happening with your muscles. To my great Greek surprise Dictionary.com actually had definitions for several different types of twitches. Who knew?
  • Convulsion, rapid and repeated muscle contraction and relaxation, resulting in uncontrolled shaking
  • Fasciculation, a small, local, involuntary muscle contraction
  • Myoclonic twitch, a jerk usually caused by sudden muscle contractions
  • Myokymia, a continuous, involuntary muscle twitch that affects the muscles of the face, particularly the eyelids
  • Spasm, a sudden, involuntary contraction of a muscle, group of muscles, hollow organ, or orifice
  • Tic, an involuntary, repetitive, nonrhythmic movement or vocalization of sudden onset and involving discrete muscle groups
  • Tremor, an involuntary, repetitive, somewhat rhythmic, muscle contraction and relaxation
To no one's surprise I have also found other types of twitches. It is not as cut and dry as just saying I have found good twitches and bad twitches. Because my Greek noggin is not wired like other noggins, I felt the need to also classify some of my twitches, fair enough?
