From my inbox: words with new meanings

6 09 2010

My older sister sent me an e-mail message this morning called “should be in a dictionary” (since the descriptions seem apt/ perfect). Although I’ve read it before, I thought I’d post it as my first blog entry of the day, and then come back later to do a ‘real’ post (on shoes – interested yet?), since I’m currently busy working. Read and enjoy:
