What Does It Really Mean

November 7, 2017

 

 

Words help us communicate with each other. There’s no world-shattering news there. Aside from writers and readers, most of us live day to day without even considering the power words can wield—eloquence, encouragement, consolation, insult.

Throw in some pepper if you’re not feeling refined.
