We had a breakthrough in words the other day. Here is the dialogue:
Jen: My blog is amusing to me. (yes, that's what i said. i could edit this out but i'm a conceited person with integrity.)
Sean: Amusing. Abusing... is it amusive...? It amuses you...
Jen: Ha! yeah, why not? They're almost the same word. It is amusive. Why shouldn't those words follow the same rule.
Sean: psychological amuse [hard s].
Jen: physical amuse [hard s].
...and that's when we kind of trailed off and talked about something else.
