Grammar Wednesday is taking a break this week. I’m neck-deep in analysis papers and I’m single parenting and, to be honest with you, Wednesday just slipped my mind (I tend to get a little confused when there’s a holiday – my whole schedule shifts forward and I forget what day it really is).
Kizz sent this to me yesterday. She stumbled across it somewhere and found it too funny not to share.
This is not even appropriate for Grammar Wed fodder but it’s so hilariously Archie Bunker that I could not help sharing. Better than creek where it should have been creak. Better than my allowed for aloud. Better than anything out of place I’ve read or written this week.
” He had a backpack slung vicariously on one shoulder”
It’s not even correctable it’s just a complete misunderstanding. Unfortunately I have NO CLUE what she thinks vicariously means.
So, what do you think? Was the writer going for something like “jauntily” or “rakishly” or even “casually”? I’m with Kizz – it could be anything…
Happy Wednesday, Everyone!
