I’m a Curmudgeon, Let Me Be

At least one critic has taken issue with today’s post, I Want to Be a Rebel, given that this blog ostensibly is about the use and misuse of language, and that post is about something else. How can I justify my choice?

Can I tell you that what one chooses to wear, or how one chooses to appear to others, is as much a type of communication as is the language that one uses?  I suppose I could, but the truth of the matter is this:

I am a curmudgeon and this is my sandbox, from which I will comment on what I please.

My Bad!

If a curmudgeon were more modern, he would say “My Bad!”, for, in the words of Jon Winokur, curmudgeons “have the temerity to comment on the human condition without apology.”

For a discussion as to why saying “my bad” is not really an apology, see my June 20 Post
