I admit it, I still read newspapers. Since I freelance for at least one, that is probably a good thing.
In the local paper a couple of day ago, a reporter was telling about an upcoming photo exhibit. For whatever reason, the (professional writer) scribe said the event was “somewhat unique.”
By the way, in a prior post I ranted about a couple of reporters who used roll and role incorrectly too.
An event is UNIQUE. No adjectives needed. It isn’t uniquely unique, quite unique or even mostly unique.
This is like being “slightly” pregnant. It is an all or nothing proposition. (No pun intended)
Closer to home for me is the term slight heart attack. I have heard it said that a slight heart attack is one that happens to someone else.
Ok, I feel better. More next week and until I take a break as I get my body worked on.
