Oh please, just one more.
or the humble yet oh-so-useful hyphen
Not such a visually arresting post as I would normally strive for, but hyphens aren’t all that striking, are they? Mind you, neither are Trade Unions these days.
On vaguely the same topic, I must just share with you a conversation I had with my husband the other day.
Husband: I think I must see a doctor.
Me (abstractedly): Wha’?
Husband: It’s about all these ducks I keeps seeing.
Me (puzzled): Wha’?
Husband: Or maybe I won’t bother. He’ll just think I’m a hypochondriac, and tell me that they’re mallard imaginaire.
You see why I love him so?
