My bar manager is the proud owner of the $1,000 Oxford English Dictionary. It is 2000 pages long and you need a magnifying glass to read it. The definition for blue is 20 pages long.
I ask him,
“How’s the dictionary going?”
“I read about the word rut.”
“I know rut.”
“No you don’t. You do?”
“I do. Rut, rutting. Doing it. Usually refers to animals mating.”
“That’s right. How do you know that?”
I like to think I have a decent vocabulary.
My bar manager adds,
“Of course you know all the sexual innuendo.”
