Based on an actual conversation my husband and I had last week. I have a list of words I cannot stand to hear misused. He pointed out that the meaning of words change over time, but I won't have it.



Many apologies for the late update! As most of you know, I live in Texas, where we are having an outbreak of massive wildfires, in addition to a dust storm blowing in from Kansas. So far, there are no fires in my immediate area, but I've been breathing who-knows-what for about a week, and I've felt ill for days now. If you're in an affected area, stay safe and hang in there!

Alanis Morisette wrote an entire song without a single correct usage! :P (If that were intentional, I'd call it brilliant.)

Ah, yes! Didn't come to think of that. xD
(My number one pet peeve, just to share my annoyance with the world, is how people use the Finnish word 'pateettinen' as if it meant 'pathetic', when it actually means 'bathetic'... there is a perfectly good Finnish word for 'pathetic', but people seem to be forgetting its existence.)

One of my favourite comedians did an entire sketch about this very subject. (This recording looks about 10 years old though)
