The other day I was watching television, and a person on the show commented on a dress someone was wearing and said, "That is so eloquent." I think I may have even responded out loud, "ELEGANT". I was surprised that they would confuse the two words. Later that day a Chinese woman who speaks English came to my house. As we were talking, she was looking at something in my house and said, "That is so eloquent." I couldn't believe it! What are the odds that I would hear that word used incorrectly twice in the same day?
Today I was reading on facebook and saw a comment someone made about a search engine gimmick. They said that if you go to Bing, and type in "Beam me up", that you will see something fun. So I did it. It was kind of cute, but not as great as I expected. lol Anyway, it was a little boring, so I exited the window and clicked on a facebook game that I like to play. The first thing that popped up. on the game was a notice about a new part of the game called, "Beam me up"! What are the odds?
I watched "Groundhog Day" yesterday. In case you haven't seen it, Bill Murray plays a man who experiences the same day over and over. After these experiences of mine, I have to wonder if I'm caught in some kind of linguistic groundhog day! :)
