I will, however, amend my first post by first, saying that the title of my blog is a quote from Laura Ingalls Wilder:
“The use of words is of itself an interesting study. You will hardly believe the difference the use of one word rather than another will make until you begin to hunt for a word with just the right shade of meaning, just the right color for the picture you are painting with words. Had you thought that words had color? The only stupid thing about words is the spelling of them.”
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, quoted by Donald Zochert, Laura: The Life of Laura Ingalls Wilder)
Secondly, I will say that words piss me off because they are fickle bitches who won’t play nice.
