I’m no longer going to say ‘proper English’
I’m going to call it ‘Corporate Approved Vernacular English’
Because that’s what it is. There are so many dialects of English out there, and ALL OF THEM ARE PROPER LINGUISTICALLY.
And this one is simply one that is used more often in business settings.
…Aside from the fact I agree 100%, I’m incredibly amused that the acronym for that is CAVE. Very appropriate to my twisted humor taste.
I’m just unbelievably fortunate to know the people I do. My boss/close friend is having a big get-together/meal tomorrow for everyone she knows who has no place to go for the day and we’re making plates for everyone stuck at our workplace (I have the afternoon-evening shift, so it will be easy to go from the brunch to there). We don’t have much more time to do this, with our schedules and her children, so this may also be a big, memorable send-off party before next month’s move. As much as I like living here, I’ve contemplated stowing away in the back of the moving van.
Shout out to all the closeted LGBT people who have to return to unsafe family environments this season. Remember that there is nothing wrong with you and that no, you are not a hypocrite for loving the people who raised you despite the things they have done to hurt you. Above all remember that you will always have friends who support you even if your family does not.
