This blog is for everyone who uses words.

The ordinary-sized words are for everyone, but the big ones are especially for children.

Sunday Rest: get-go. Word Not To Use Today.

If your Christmas is going to include the word get-go then your turkey is too large, your anxiety levels are entirely inappropriate for a celebration of love, and you haven't explained to the children carefully enough that if they get up before dark then they might scare Father Christmas off before he's had a chance to drop off the presents.

(See? He's still working at dawn...)

I mean, I doubt the shepherds keeping watch over their flocks by night ran off screeching come on, or we won't be in at the get-go!

After all, didn't someone say And on Earth, Peace?

Happy Christmas, and goodwill toward men*!

Word Not To Use Today: get-go. This word seems to have emerged in 1960s America.

*And don't start all that gender lark, either!
