I need your feedback, peeps. I left a comment over at Laid Off Dad’s and this guy ‘Prego’ leaves a comment in return. I can’t figure out if he thinks I used the word ‘aplomb’ incorrectly or if he is amazed that I knew how to use it properly in a sentence. I meant exactly what I said and there is nothing incorrect about it. He, on the other hand, wrote some really poorly constructed sentences and then used the word ‘sangfroid’ in a really odd way. I just can’t tell what he is saying.
So what do you think? I’m not going to start a debate on someone else’s blog so I’m bringing it over here.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Aplomb, n.:Self-confident assurance; poise.WTF is wrong with everyone?Ok, it’s ALL taken care of babes.
ooooh, now he talked DOWN to me. lack the reader’s digest version of humor? again I say: WTF?I INVENTED humor, buster!
Wow – he’s so clueless. I can’t figure out what he means at all. I’d respond to him at LOD but it just seems inappropriate for me to do it. Thanks for giving it a shot, though!
He’s a man. That’s the whole story, right there!
Actually Jeanne, he is a man who writes about poop, not just once but reapeatedly. He uses lots of potty mouth vocabulary on his site – and he has the temerity to question my command of English. What can we realistically expect from such a person? 😉
I think Prego is the clerk from the Swiss Army knife store.Ciao, baby!
oh I just looked at his site; it seemed a wee bit mysoginist (probably just misspelled that bcs I failed to look it up in my NEW DICTIONARY!) He talks about his wife in a weird, condescending way.
You used it correctly, dear (coincidently, it is one of my favorite words). I think we might have a “dolt” on our hands in Prego.
