Sorted! a rant.

On a display of bottles of pink gin:

in my local Sainburys supermarket there is a notice which says:


Valentine's Day: sorted!

.....

and I really don't think that's truly in the spirit of the occasion.

Word To Use Today: sort. The Latin word sors means fate. 

Fate, as in fatal, is what might quite easily happen if you forget Valentine's Day.

So perhaps that notice has something to say for it, after all.
