Dictionary Of Clichés

A couple of weeks ago when Cindy and I were over at Daytona Beach, we stopped in at a used book store we had visited before.

I walked back to the “Writing” section and after a minute or two of scanning the 6 shelves they had dedicated to the subject, I came across this beauty; The Dictionary of  Clichés by James Rogers, for an excellent price of only $5.00. This will be a great addition to my reference bookshelf!

The Dictionary Of Clichés

There was also an extra “kick” in it for me because when I opened the Dictionary Of Clichés up and began to browse through it to be sure it was intact, I glanced at the first entry and was pleased to see that I already knew the origin and definition of A-OK.

Yeah, I’m easily amused.

 

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
