My mini rant, I hope you enjoy!
Wouldn’t it be lovely if all English words had one spelling and one meaning! I wanted to be an English major once upon a time. I enjoyed syntax and the use of Oxford grammar and punctuation. It physically pains me to see, ‘dived’ or ‘blowed’ in my daughter’s library choices. (…like I have no other issues)
Meanwhile, there are two words that I am really starting to despise, ‘Well’ & ‘Just’. For starters, I am struggling with being short-changed in a family matter following our recent losses. I have friends praying the family courts make just decisions. As for being well, I am a hot mess, depressed and bitter. Many of you have indicated the same.
Meanwhile these cringe-worthy words have been irking me for a while. The context they are used in is either limiting, demanding or insulting.
If I hear my teen say, “Well, actually,” one more time I will lose it!
Or “We ask that you give us, just, peace, Lord, and just strength. The qualifier, just, limits His infinite possibilities, it shouldn’t be a filler.
Well, my little rant is over. You can just go about your day now.
