Over Thanksgiving I plan on eating a plethora of delicious food. You know what I mean? Seriously, do you? A “plethora” is an overabundance, as in a glut, as in too much of something. A “plethora” isn’t just lots. It’s an excessive amount. But you know what, on this holiday full of warmth and family and graciousness – and did I mention the homemade lattice-topped apple pie? – the calories don’t count. That’s my philosophy anyhow.
There’s so much to be thankful for this year, and correct word usage at the table is one of them. (Oh, how my family must love me!)
