Pare a Pair of Pears, Please Image Posted on August 1, 2014 by kathryningrid Share this:FacebookLinkedInEmailPinterestMoreRedditTumblrTwitterLike this:Like Loading... Related
And the next time you go to the ocean, don’t forget to peer at a peer on a pier. (Did you know that the nouns pair and peer are historically the same word? They are.)
Of *course* I didn’t know that. I get most of my etymological knowledge from you, if you didn’t know it yet!
I did try to do as you recommended when we were at Long Beach (WA) the other day, but I was with Richard, and as you know I think he’s pretty much without peer, so nothing came of it.
I saw “Long Beach” and immediately thought of the Long Beach on the south shore of Long Island. As a child I spent many a summer afternoon and early evening at that beach. I suspect the water is colder at the one in Washington.
I’ve not visited LB-Long Island yet, myself, so I don’t know about relative temperatures, but I can vouch for the bracing quality of the WA side!
Love it, Kathryn. 🙂
An unpredictable paranormal poem:)
As I think paranormal things are by nature unpredictable, I guess my work here is done! 😉
Love the word play.
Kind words from a master of wordplay!! Thanks!
