The Thursday Threesome: Hook ’em Horns!
Onesome: Hook– Just to get us back in the swing of things after the holidays: when you’re at home, where do your keys hang out, on a hook by the door? …or do they have a special place? …or do you find them wherever they landed the last time you walked in?
There’s a hook on a door. Which door and which hook, I won’t say.
Twosome: ’em– Do you use contractions like ” ’em ” in your daily conversations? …or do people use a contraction or phrase that particularly bugs you past the point of rationality?
I don’t pay much attention to my own speech, but I’ll say, probably not very often. I’m not bothered by other people using contractions.
Threesome: Horns– On the Horns of a dilemma: if you had only one movie you could nominate for the Academy Awards for 2005, which would it be? …and why? The screenplay? …the lead player(s)? …the setting?
I haven’t seen very many movies in 2005 so I’d pass on this.
