The Internet Is ALL I Have Left.
And Truth Be Told, I am Just Fine With That.

But I Opted For Two Kittens

“So, He Did Not Answer The Question, Did He?”
“Maybe He’s Fat.”
“No. He would never do anything that prosaic.”
And, IMHO, ‘Prosaic’ Is a GREAT Word–It ‘says’ A lot–
With Economy, No Verbosity–
Just Seven Letters.

Out There In ‘Radio Land’:
Prosaic Has Literary Origins
In the past, any text that was not poetic was prosaic. Back then, prosaic carried no negative connotations; it simply indicated that a written work was made up of prose.
That sense clearly owes much to the meaning of the word’s Latin source prosa, meaning “prose.”
Poetry is viewed, however, as the more beautiful, imaginative, and emotional type of writing, and prose was relegated to the status of mundane and plain-Jane.
As a result, English speakers started using prosaic to refer to anything considered matter-of-fact or ordinary, and they gradually transformed it into a synonym for “colorless,” “drab,” “lifeless,” and “lackluster.”
