Boiling It Down

This is another treasure I picked up last weekend. It's a very old dictionary that contains 33,000 words. It's teeny tiny and fits in the palm of your hand. The reason so many words can fit in such a small book is because the definitions are boiled down to just a few simple words.

Jenny DohLike the word "ass." It's a noun. And the defintion is "stupid fellow."

Isn't that great? Boiled down. Straight to the point. (I think it's hilarious that "donkey" is nowhere to be found in its definition.)

Jenny Doh Boy, if I could get my hands on several copies of this dictionary, I'd love to send it to folks who drone on and on with a pile of either misused or overused words that add up to nothing more than gibberish.

Let's boil it down, shall we? All together now: Don't be an ass.

Happy Friday. :)
