Leopard Print and Grammar
So dear reader, (yes, the grammar police will be after me but it's necessary to break the mould now and then) I have been styling America this week. More on my boring blog. However, I must tell you an anecdote.
I was on the platform with my faithful Nat Nav.
She was wondering whether any UK people were following the style prompt which that day was burgundy, leopard print and black. She asked if hair counted!!!
I looked around and saw a lady with burgundy long hair (grammar police, beware, this is not the correct order. Revel in how wrong burgundy long hair sounds instead of long, burgundy hair)
'Oh I thought you meant leopard print, ' I said.
We contemplated the leopard print hair concept for a bit then moved on. We caught our train, got off at the next stop and put on our hats.
'You're the one with leopard print hair, ' she pointed out.
Now for the grammar police and linguists here's a little something Petra sent me.
Can any one tell the difference between 'Completed' and 'Finished'? No dictionary has ever been able to define the difference between 'Complete' and 'Finished.' However, in a linguistic conference, held in London England, Sun Sherman an Indian American, was the clever winner. His final challenge was this. His response was: When you marry the right woman, you are 'Complete.' If you marry the wrong woman, you are 'Finished.' And , when the right woman catches you with the wrong woman, you are 'Completely Finished.' His answer received a five minute standing ovation._*
