Just read something about the informal and inaccurate use of the word 'literally' (e.g. 'I was LITERALLY gob-smacked!!' ---me, in my mind: 'really? did it hurt much? how is your gob doing? have any plans on averting inanimate things from causing you physical violence in the future?') entering the dictionary.
'...Oxford Dictionaries begrudgingly admitted the shift: "In recent years an extended use of literally (and also literal) has become very common, where literally (or literal) is used deliberately in non-literal contexts, for added effect....'
Rather than being irritated by this development, I was just happy that someone is out there reporting on it.
A small win for the dull.
But....I'd like to think....I make dull just that bit sexier.
***Ready? Tits out: dot those 'i's! Bat those lashes! (Learn the rules so you'll know just how to break 'em...)***
All of this is my way of avoiding talking about the panic attack I had last night.
What happened? People always ask. Hormones, basically, but also....I've been letting my fear of not being able to stay in the UK get to me....and of not being able to find a decent job....and yeh, sometimes a girl just feels a bit....alone, and anxious.
