Here love truly does not seek its own, even if this be the salvation of one’s own soul.

The following interchange took place as I purchased beer at a convenience store on my way home from my extended family’s Christmas party tonight. The cashier was a cute brunette who sold me beer, so she was at least eighteen years old.

Cashier: May I see your ID?
Me (getting ID): You just made my day.
Cashier (looking at ID): Oh, you were born the same year as my mom!
Me (laughing) You just ruined my day.
Cashier: You’re still young.

Yeah. Right.

I’ve updated my page on problematic words for readers. A decent resource for words of which readers seem perennially unsure (or sure and quite surely wrong).
