24 Things You Might Be Saying Wrong…

A Reader’s Digest article from last year, 24 Things You Might Be Saying Wrong, includes quite a few examples of what I call “Close but no cigar,” a word or phrase that we almost get correct.

I didn’t even know that Reader’s Digest had a Web site (I guess everyone does, huh?), so while you’re reading that, I’m going to look for some of their jokes. That’s the only part of the magazine I read when it was delivered to my parents house a three decades ago (or so).

Humor in Uniform, here I come!
