From today's Wall St. Journal:
"Rather than bemoaning the frothy and fleeting nature of new words and phrases, however, we can embrace it."
I fear the mixed metaphor is unfortunate.
Embrace the frothy - feel it pop.
Embrace the fleeting - it won't stop.
From The Villager, one of our neighborhood papers:
"Walking or other activities that alternate movement of one side of the body and then the other help to clear our thoughts and improve our moods."
I want to see a controlled study of the mental health of freestyle swimmers - as opposed to breast-stroke swimmers. I bet either stroke will clear your mind as well as the other.
A lot of times
that I can clear my mind
by making silly rhymes.
