Verbal Pet Peeve

Happy Friday the 13th with a Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde.  Whatever you do, don’t panic – but don’t be too surprised if nothing goes smoothly today, either.  Please, refrain from doing any magick, making any major decisions or throwing your phone because communications are so frustratingly screwy.

Okay that’s all your horoscopes for the day.

It is kind of exciting that we’re having the phenomenon of a Full Moon on Friday the 13th, and that it won’t happen again until the year 2049!   To try and ward against any mayhem with my laptop due to Merc Retro, I’m opting to keep my answer to the Daily Prompt short, sweet and to the point.

Saying “These ones” and “those ones” is redundant.  Knock it off!  It literally makes me cringe when I hear you say it, as if you’ve just raked your fingernails over a chalkboard.  “These” and “Those” are exactly perfect and do not require the addition of “ones.”  You are already indicating which ‘ones’ by saying ‘these’ or ‘those.’ Please for all that is good and vital and sane – Stop it!

Okay, I feel better now.  Hope y’all have a great, black cat, ladder free day! 😉

Unless, you’re like me and share space with black cats…

and aren’t superstitious in any way…

Just, have a good freakin’ day!
