"I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be
living apart." -e.e. cummings
The Washington Post's Style Invitational asked readers to take any
word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting or changing
one letter, and supply a new definition.
Here are some of the winners:
Coming back to life as a hillbilly.
Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of
Vandalism spray-painted very, very high up on walls.
A lecherous Mr. Potato Head.
The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the recipient
who doesn't get it.
To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.
A degenerate disease.
It's like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad
vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's, like,
a serious bummer.
All talk and no action.
The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come
at you rapidly.
Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it
was your money to start with.
A person who's both stupid and an asshole.
