I think I have writer’s block. How else am I supposed to explain that I’m sitting here at my computer, staring at my scrabble dictionary and wondering if I have anything to say about it? By the way, “rheology” is a word. It means, “the study of matter in the fluid state”, which is code for “sucks to be a rheologist”. Also? “Quiff” is a word. It means, “a forelock”, code for, “what the crap is a forelock?” The point is I’m really good at decoding.
I’m also really good at identifying the difference between certain words. It’s nothing special really, except I worry a little about the people who don’t share that ability. For example, a person who gets confused between self deprecation and self defacation could be in BIG trouble. Or, take Oxytocin and OxyContin – one is a hormone, one is an addictive opiate. Critical information if one needs to stage an intervention. Know what else? Intervention and Intermission? TOTALLY different. If you need to stage an intervention and you go for an intermission instead, everyone will be totally confused.
Glad I could help.
p.s. Anyone who can identify the reference of my post title without googling is my HERO! Can you? Huh?
