Is it just me or is the art of lively conversation with a warm blooded, real person who happens to be standing in front of you dying away in favour of staring into a screen to let people know what we're doing, how we are feeling, what we think about this and that, etc.?
(sounds a little hypocritical coming from someone who spends her day sitting in front of a computer, voicing her opinion to a virtual audience? Believe it or not, while I love doing what I do, I find nothing more enjoyable than face to face interaction, big or small with an actual person. I'm just funny like that!)
The dictionary (that's the dusty old book with a whole bunch of words in it that is probably hiding in your basement somewhere!) is chockful of delicious nouns, adjective and verbs that have disappeared from daily use and I think we have to do something about it!
Let's start today...I for one will take out a 'resplendent' pair of yellow Hunter wellingtons out of the closet and make my way through the ice and snow, maybe just a little lighter in my step!
