So I wanted to know what precious words might be "endangered." After all, I care about endangered species, this is the same.
Some of these words, OK, deserve to be put to rest, they're awkward at best, strange, dissonant, weird would be a kind description.
But that's kind of the fun too... You don't want just useful words... You want words to confound, dissociate, discombobulate and just plain put some annoying people in their place from time to time. Especially when you write it into a book where you know it can't help but draw notice... And its alive for another day, month, year.
So, it's worth the time and the money. Plus, it was just plain, simple, calorie and alcohol free FUN!
