i’ve developed a bit of contempt for a few words that i use with great frequency. it all started when my sister told me to edit them out of my resume,, this was 3 years ago. at any rate, i’ve become really, very tired of them:: that is really and very. perhaps even so. i’ve been wondering why i even need them at all. they’re empty, cheap words. i need to replace them with words of color. words that actually say something rather than leaning on another. whenever i feel them pound out on my keyboard, i shall greet a thesaurus for consultation! yes!
