Sillily

My daughter was walking through the house with a silly walk that would have certainly been approved by Monty Python's Ministry. She asks, "How am I walking?"

"Sillily," I replied.

Then I started thinking of the word. To make an adverb out of an adjective in English, you simply add the suffix "-ly." But "silly" already ends in "-ly," So you're forced into a a sort of double "-ly." "Sillily" didn't exactly roll off my tongue; it dripped off with a st... st... stuttering hesitation.

For the next half hour, I walked around the house saying to myself, "sillily."
