TUXEDO TUESDAY, TOO ... Revisited!
Fellow felines always ask me, "Daisy ... How did you acquire your phenominal command of Standard American English?" and "How do you manage to convey your opinion on such unequivocal terms without insulting your human?"
Other than the fact that my mom is a teacher with a pretty impressive vocabulary that she indulges me with daily, I supplement my knowledge of the written and spoken word through exhaustive study sessions in the old reference library. Felines would be amazed by the sheer breadth of knowledge obtained through scratching sessions on the Funk and Wagnalls or the World Atlas (as you can see in this weeks T-3).
Next time you find yourself describing your bowl of stinky goodness with the same tired adjectives, whip out the dictionary and exercise your claws on the cover (pages, too!). Stretch your lexicon from the pedestrian "meow" expressing simple satisfaction with the meal to the more erudite "meioooowwww" demonstrating high praise to the purveyor of the paté. Give your drab daily diction the day off and you might be surprised by what you find in your dish tomorrow!
