THIS morning we heard that one of the most frequently used words in the English vocabulary is TIME. We thought that was
ridiculous silly funny hilarious … in fact, we said to no one in particular, “Wassat? Time? That’s just stupid… we don’t have time for this nonsense. Is it time for us to start watching something besides Headline News? Whoa! Look at the time!” Then we raced to our happy little computer in hopes of being first to comment on Waking Ambrose today, alas to no avail. We didn’t get there in time. Nevertheless, we did leave a definition for the word of the day (retractable) and had a good time setting a certain quote record straight(ish).
Time. Apparently a word we all use a lot. According to that study by some group whose name we can’t recall, time is not only on our minds, but on our lips ALL the time. We have it on our hands, over our heads, in ourselves. We race against it, we waste it, we fondly remember it, we look forward to it. We can lose it, but, once in awhile, it’s on our side. Often, time is preceded by words like “good”, “on”, “party”, “Father”, “over”, “bed”, “Miller”, “down”, “Hammer”, “borrowed”, and “life”. Time is also followed by things like “out”, “off”, “to go”, “for more”, “share”, and “for this one to come home!” (stupid Tudor Turtle reference). And now, dear Snarklings, as much as we’d love to continue with these clever and sort-of-but-not-really timely examples, we, ourselves, are out of it. For, as we all know, “time waits for no man and/or woman”. Besides, we can’t do ALL the work around here ALL the time, can we? No. We cannot. Therefore, if you really want more, you’ll just have to come up with ’em on your own time. ~
