Here are some questions I've been wondering about without finding enough of an answer for paragraphs. Just wondering:
Do the makers of electronic invitations use the term E-vite or Evite in France? "Eviter" is the French word for "to avoid," so "evite" something can look like "avoid" something.
Do people who use the word sophisticated badly know just how bad it makes them sound (or look)? "Wise" is so much closer to what people think "sophisticated" means.
Is spring in Chicago just an average -- again?
Why do I enjoy looking at flowers and blooming trees so much when I'm allergic to their pollen?
When you tell someone your name, does that person frequently respond with "And what do you want to be called?" If not, count that among your blessings.
Why do we talk about "favorite" things instead of "favored" ones?
Shall I do some more lists of Serious questions later? (Let me know!)
