Thank you Mike Essig. I’m all in for the hilarious uses of the Thesaurus. Bring them on! The Thesaurus’s main usefulness for me is as a road map to somewhere else.
I was writing something this morning and didn’t want to use the word “compose.” Old Thessie, didn’t have any interesting synonyms for compose (this is why online is so amazing) so I just kept clicking through antonyms and synonyms until I stumbled upon “prettify.” The two words are not related to each other all that much but it took the work in a new direction.
Then “prettify,” turned into, “petrify.” Which was heading in the same direction except now I am more frightened.
Thanks again. I appreciate your reading and comment.
