One of the remarkable things in our highly possessive society is that no one “owns” words … we just adopt them.
There are those words that are our friends: we like to see them from time to time, they smile at us, we smile at them. They talk to us, we talk back, small talk, a little lunch chat … maybe more.
There are those words we read, those we think we understand, those too abstruse for our time, too.
And … there are words and expressions that we take a fancy to, that we really like. In the same way, we like to wear these jeans or that sweater or those funny socks or that old scarf … When you come across a word or a phrase you really like … why not adopt it? You’ll be giving a whole new life to those few letters who’ll make life for others more colorful!
Adopt a word today! They’re everywhere … just waiting for a little TLC.
TLC ? TLC = tender loving care … (something like love)
