WORDS/PHRASES I LOATHE
This new section is a conduit to air my distaste for trite, repetitive and stupid word and phrase usage that is all too common. Most are noise used by speakers who cannot deal with silence.
First on the list is, “… you know… you know… you know…”. You can fill in the blanks between the inanities.

A COMMON ERROR
“Between you and I” is often heard.
What is wrong with that phrase? Why? What is the correction?
WORDS I LIKE
Today’s word is “revulsion”.
Define the word and try to use it in conversation today.
