Additionally, I was contacted by the creator of a project called "A Rewording Life" asking if I would like to participate. It's an interesting idea: take lesser used words and have Canadians write a sentence using that word in context. For example:
While I'm not getting paid for this, part of the proceeds will go toward the Alzheimer's Foundation, so there is a certain altruistic appeal to it. Writing one sentence is next to the least I can do (the least I or anyone can do, as always, is nothing). One sentence? I can do that in my sleep."I eschew the cashew; I'm allergic, and it makes me ah-chooo." Robert Hough
And I probably will be working on it in my sleep as I fret and deliberate on the many different possibilities for the word that I have selected. I want it to be a funny sentence, but not funny-stupid but rather funny-clever. And it needs to convey the meaning of the word itself, without just coming out and saying what the word means... You can see the pressure that I am under.

It's almost 7 am and RG still isn't up yet. Not that I'm complaining about a baby that sleeps through the night, but my morning goes so much better when I leave for work having gotten snuggles and a smile...
