The following are like nails on a chalkboard to me:
*** Can you take a "pitcher" of us?
Oh, a PIC-TURE.
*** We drove "acrost" the country?
*** I love all kinds of chocolate, "expecially" dark chocolate.
*** As in, Bush calls for a development of more "nucular" power.
*** "For all intensive purposes"
Uh huh. So the purpose is intensive. Mmm-hmmm. Did you mean for all intents and purposes? Please say yes.
Try being married to me. I'm no fun.
Oh, but here are some new words that I LOVE using as verbs. It may drive you crazy, but I'm all about these:
*** I Googled it. As in googling an ex-lover.
*** To get an idea of the value of my home, I Zillowed it.
*** I'm Blogging this.
For extra credit, use all of my favorite words in one brilliant sentence.
