What has your inherited locution provided you?

Post by RandomHaruchai »

With gratitude to the ideator, and some seasons having passed since reading the series, has anyone a tale to share? Some example of... unexpected elocution or perhaps insightful perception of others' drollery ... some way in which the author's gift of vocabulary has provided an unforeseeable benefit for you? The ubiquitous their/they're/there memes and such aside?

Sadly, all I can offer at the moment is the memory of an 8th grade book report (LFB) that both made a teacher refer to a dictionary and blush when describing certain disconcerting content to my mother. I am the reason SRD was not welcomed into the junior high library.

LOL The only benefit I can think of is to my ego when people tell me they have to Google some word that I used casually in conversation. :D
