Good Sunday morning to you. Last week, one of my students said, "Happy Monday," and I snorted and said, "That's an oxymoron!" Then I had to explain what that meant even though it's the same word in French. They finally got it when I explained, "You know it's like saying a kind asshole, or a fat anorexic." It's not quite the same as redundant phrases such as "free gift" or "unexpected surprise", though both are frowned upon in writing.
Yesterday, we enjoyed a lovely dinner at our friend Dan's house. He made cassoulet. It was delicious. Afterward, we were sitting around and I asked, "Is everything already formed when it comes out, or is it more like a pastry bag effect down there?" Dan felt that everything is previously formed, while Serge felt that at times it's more like a pastry bag. We agreed that the worst is when there's air caught in the pastry bag. That always complicates things.
