(I’m saving some Facebook posts here, in preparation for the likelhood that Facebook will become unusable in the near future. It looks like the best way is to post here first and link to Facebook afterwards, since copyijng stuff from Facebook takes a lot of time and care.)

Denise asked me this morning if I wanted to use the toaster. I said I didn’t because toaster rhymes with ghoster, and that is too scary.
After a few moments’ silence, I pointed out that she hadn’t challenged the premise of my objection. “‘Ghoster’ isn’t a word”, I pointed out.
“But it could be a word,” she noted.
So now “ghoster ” is a word… its definition is “a contractor who provides ghosts to haunt a house that has hitherto not experienced enough death and tragedy to warrant one.”
