Beanie: c/o Choies
Leggings: Forever 21 [similar]
Boots: Thrifted [similar]
Necklace: Garage [similar]
So apparently, there are four different meanings of the word 'dope.'
1. a stupid person
2. smear or cover with varnish
3. very cool
Obviously, my beanie is representing the third definition (and on my off days, the first).
And not the fourth. Cuz ain't nobody got time fo dat.
No but really, doesn't it suck when a word has multiple meanings?
aka a HOMONYM.
(shout out to my third grade teacher who taught us that one grammar lesson I never thought would be useful.....like cursive)
Here are some examples of my frustration:
Like, what if you wrote on Facebook: "I'm engaged."
what you meant: I am engaged in this episode of NCIS.
what people thought you meant: I am engaged to be married.
Cue the 134 likes, 58 comments, and 66 texts.
You're riding shotgun. The driver asks you if they take the next left and you say "right."
what you meant: You are right. We do take the next left.
what the driver thought you meant: Not left, it's right.
Cue the shouting and sudden reckless driving.
You're telling your friend over the phone to bring a crane to help you move.
what you meant: Bring a large, tall heavy machine used for moving heavy objects.
what your friend thought you meant: Bring a large, long-legged and long-necked bird.
Cue the poop and feathers everywhere.
I mean, don't you just hate it when friends bring large birds to your house?
It's like my biggest pet peeve.
Moral of the story.
Let's not be so stuck on one meaning of one word.
Let us remember that homonyms are still alive and relevant.
Because Crocs are always relevant.
and now you know.
