English Takes A Beating

I know that my hangover has set me to a shorter fuse than normal, but someone here at work just sent me an email to inform me that a form on our system has been OBSOLETED... and it made me want to break something.

I'd obsoletify whoever said it. After I'd ridiculed and shamed them publicly. Accuse them of verbification, and call them a pervert. That ought to do it.

You could be right!

I used to have a boyfriend who said "conversate". As in: "We were conversating the other day." Like somewhere between "converse" and "conversation" there just HAD to be "conversate". Oh well, he had a big dick so we didn't spend all our time conversating.

A good word that's both a noun and a verb is BITCH.

Now I have Elvis singing "Too much conversating and not enough action!" in me head.

Now about this dick of his...

He was (and still is) an extremely hot black guy. (I wrote off "conversate" to cultural differences.) We split up years ago but would get together for the occasional booty call. Last I saw, he was dating a guy who looked just like me!

Once you try Thom, you never go back.

According to dictionary.com, 'obsoleted' is indeed a word. As is 'obsoletely'. Having said that, though, I am just as shocked as you are! And I shall continue whitching* about it!

*whitching= mixture between 'whinging' and 'bitching'.

Edna, noooooooo! Say it isn't so.
