    Roster is a stupid word

    When I was a kid I got a Pro Football Almanac at school through the Scholastic Book Order. In this age before the Internet, I spent the next week telling anyone within earshot who the QBs were on the Jets "roaster." Because that's how that word looked to a 4th grader.

    What a crappy word.







    These are the memories I have of grade school.

    I really believed that "cold turkey" was a miracle food for drinking and smoking and whatnot.

    Naive in my 20's, huh?

    Why say "defenestrate" when you can say "throw someone out of a fcuking window?" Wacky language, this English.

    When I was a kid, they used to read the school lunch menu over the loud speaker each morning, and every day the hot lunch ended with a choice of "soup or juice".

    I spent six years drinking the juice and wondering what made it so "super".

    when he was 4, my son constantly got defenstrate and decapitate confused.

    He's straightened that out, thankfully. (My wife was a little perturbed that he knew either of those words, but whatever.)

    It's the word's fault that you read it wrong?

    Personal responsibility, man. And stuff.

    Now that we're trying to figure these things out, is it "ON the wagon" or "OFF the wagon" ???

    There are 2 or 3 people in my office who are constantly found asleep, so I intentionally confuse narcolepsy and necrophilia.

    Hilarity ensues.

    I always thought that John Mellencamp didn't want to be no "Bob Seger" or sing any "Bob" songs

    I thought "Holy Diver" by Dio was titled "Oh MacGyver" and a tribute to the TV show. Sang it like that in my car well into my teens.
