As an example, when my Nanna had a cast on her foot after surgery, I called it a cactus.
In this cartoon, Arnold (my Dogberry counter part) uses mascot instead of boycott. I also love the fact that he captures the spirit of me and my coworkers at the time. While complaining about our cut in pay, not one of us knows what a FICA is! It's a plant, isn't it?
Last week, in my blog, I used the word "accommodation" instead of the word "commendation." This is both Dogberryism and a sample of Ianese. Truthfully, Edit Mom is the one who discovered this, so please do not give me a pop quiz. I am still looking for my accommodation for spelling and using incorrect words. Edit Mom tells me that I need a dictionary, but what I heard is a "Diction Airy." Hmmm, now it has affected my hearing too.
