semantics baby

February 12, 2009

At the law firm where I work they title the divorce matters, “Marriage of So and So,” like they think they might jinx it if they say divorce.  As with abortions, so much horror is in the word, I listened to my friend once tell her sister to get a ‘shmashortion’ for three hours.  I don’t think I’m the first person to come to this conclusion, but as far as I know no one ever came to a lawyer for a divorce and left without jinxing their marriage or dropping seven grand. 

You can shoot yourself in the foot and say it was someone else’s foot, but you’re still gonna be the one with a limp.

    I have no difficulty with being wrong. In fact, I’d very much prefer to be in this case.
