Words....wordswordswords..

It's funny sometimes to think of words..

..of what would be the 'logical' thing to say..

Such as....why we don't say..."last day"..

I mean, we say last night..

Or why not yesternight..no, it's yester-day..

hmmm, weird, no?


Yes...

And "hot"..thanks to Paris-mega-hotel-chain Hilton, who, by the way proves one can certainly be "too rich or too thin"..I hate the word hot..what a lazy way to express something, by popular definition, is supposed to be wonderful..

Lazy lazylazylazylazy..

"Hot" should be reserved for...Lame LAKE  Havasu AZ, {seriously - this WAS a typo...really..ah come on..it REALLY was!} where my sister Kathy lives..can get to 127 degrees



"Hot" as in wasabi

"Hot" as in jalapeno peppers..

"Hot" as in "that's NOT a blow dryer..it's a heat gun..hot"

NOT...as in...

"That's hot" when seeing a purse..that costs more than a small country would..

"That's hot" when some one burps the alphabet..

"That's hot" when someone with no designer taste orders green shag carpet..for the walls..

OK, so maybe we need to try..picture-sign-language!


I think I've been on that road before...



It's enough to give anyone a head ache..

so....

Thanks for the hug. We need it as the temperature is dropping. It is 19 C /65F and for us that's cool enough for a sweater. It is not "HOT." Bill still finds some English words funny. If I say, "You need a hair cut." He replies, "Which one?"

LOL! Lame Havasu!! How funny. The English language IS strange and the weird thing is, it keeps evolving. Hence, the word 'gay'. Remember when The Lone Ranger was on and in the intro the word 'yesteryear' was used. I still think that's the strangest word.

Definitely some things that make you go "hmmmmmmmmm........".

Totally agree with you on the use of
"hot".

It has often been said that the English language is the hardest to learn - is it any wonder why?

Wishing you a wonderful holiday weekend.

Sue:)
