It has all nearly ruined me again.
Yesterday in church found me hearing a sermon about "The Amazing Images of the Resurrection". Geez louise, amazing?? Is the best you can do to use the most devalued word in the entire English language? After I have sweated out the week talking about synonyms for that Very. Same. Word. thatverysameword!?!?!
I wrote about sixty synonyms for amazing on my bulletin (which was actually a somewhat worshipful experience). I also spent the time pondering their choice to change "wretch" in Amazing Grace to "sinner". The connotative meaning is so much greater for wretch! Such a vivid word choice!
The writing test is tomorrow and we are 1/3 done with testing. I shall shut up soon.
We enjoyed a very swank Easter brunch, but that enjoyment was curbed pretty severely as my Granny spent the majority of the meal regaling the details of a gruesome local tragedy. At one point, I begged her to "please stop talking about the meat tenderizer when the meat course is on the way!!!".
