Travis Erwin was talking about the word "tidings" and whether it was ever used except at Christmas and that brought to mind an expression I dislike that has crept into the vocabulary of waitstaff. Maybe it's only in Michigan but a busboy or waiter will come up to the table and ask, "Are you still working on that?"
Somehow this expression takes me out of the experience of fine dining and into the experience of digestive processes.
What expression sets your teeth a chatter?
One more matter, I finally saw the recent film version of I AM LEGEND. WTF.
