I know, I know, I know, the ‘Fifteen’ post has been up for way too long. But guys? The work? It kills. Yesterday was horrific, and today only looks to be slightly less so. But in culling my e-mails (for something work-related that I was supposed to have received days ago), I saw this little gem sent to me by a friend.

Aaaaaaaaannnnd…because I’m such a wordnerd, I loved it. Because way back in the day, when I first adopted the ‘wordnerd’ moniker, I did it NOT because I’m a grammar snob but because I love words. I love what they do. Simplistic? Yes. But it’s da troof. Complex interplays of words with different meanings? I cannot imagine life without ’em.  Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnndddd…agaaaaaaaaiiin…it IS Wordplay Wednesday in some parts of the blogosphere, so what better way to recognize it?

So…if you’re here, you at least love to read, if not to write. Enjoy!
