It’s going to be a really (really) long offseason
Dedicating this post to the word “plethora.”
Chasm… I”ll never live that down…
Most of the words within my vocabulary.
'Hypocrite'- I still cringe at the memory
poltergeist and Ginny…harry potter fucked me up on that one
hoax…I read it in a book and asked my mom what a “hoe-ax” is and she laughed so hard…I’m still upset about it
I asked my dad what gentile herps were.
Melee (I read it a bunch of times with those french accents, and my Spanish education forces me to stress the vowel with the ` accent on top, thus mispronouncing this stupid fucking word in front of a bunch of friends)
Placate, Malicious and Wrath. Oh man, cringing even now
vehemently, and i’m pretty sure when i was younger I asked my dad what cologne was and eventually i had to SHOW him the word on the page to make him understand what i was saying
I’ll never live down the shame of “Matthew, it’s IN-ven-tor-y, not in-VENT-or-y.”
The Greek gods omg
Enveloping and specificity. It still takes me a second.
Lascivious. Still feel the shame.
Waking up my mom to ask what a ‘machete’ (“match-ette”) was.
(just realizing I had the best parents who never censored a thing I read)
You think one wouldn’t remember this, but she brings it up any time I have pretensions at intelligence.
On the next anniversary, let’s renew the vows
