Turns out my local power company is about to turn out my electricity for two hours — the price of living right next to an electrical substation, I guess!!! (Or is “price” the wrong word? Because isn’t a price something you pay in exchange for something that might have worth? Ah, words…)
Anyway, due to prices or costs or random electron-associated proximities, this will be a quick post.
WORD SWORD: a metaphorical sword which one can use to divide the words (and phrases and usages and spellings) which one likes from those one does not.
So…my word sword chops down, and when the dust clears, I see:
ON THE GOOD SIDE…i.e. words and phrases I particularly like today:
And pretty much anything Oscar Wilde ever said.
ON THE BAD SIDE…i.e. words/phrases/spellings that I don’t much care for (or hate passionately) today:
impact (as a verb)
all intensive purposes
So….what does your word sword show today?
All answers welcome!
