recently, i've been sifting through my vocabulary. similar to a pair of jeans that develops holes from consistent wear, there are words that wear on us, culturally speaking, and they need to either be mended or thrown out. today, i'm mending my relationship to the word just, and i invite you to join me!
i often misuse the word, as in: "i just wanted to tell you..." or "i just wrote to ask...". using just in this way is diminishing and, frankly, unnecessary. both those sentences would work
anyone out there want to join in on the challenge? oh, and i invite you to call me on using the diminishing version of just in my posts if it sneaks in unnoticed by me! deal? deal!
