Getting Over Yourself

When you’re at a loss for words

Filed under: Observations — Barbara Rocha @ 12:43 pm

I saw this interesting approach to being at a loss for words. Does this seem odd to anyone else?

In a gardening catalog was this description: “After tasting Sugar Pearls we were at a loss for words to describe the full-bodied sweet golden-honey flavor of this incredible white apricot.”

Imagine how much more delicious it would have sounded if only they could have found the right words. (Okay, that probably should be identified as an attempt at irony on my part.)

Try to avoid confusing your audience with such contradictions–unless you can grin while you’re saying it so they can get the joke.
