"Tina! Why must you always be gallivanting? You are such a monkey. I'm going to wrap you up in cotton wool and make you live in a shoebox." -My mother
My two big ones:ostensiblyspeciousThey just TASTE good.
Tonight I used the word "hamstrung" and created some confusion. I was describing an actor and the person I was talking with said, "Yes! He is so ham-handed!"Then I tried to explain what hamstrung actually meant, but I had a hard time. The best I could come up with is that one's hamstrings have been damaged and left to rot in the past tense, making it impossible for one to run.
That was me, not anonymous! Drat!
