New meanings for old words – part two

Compassion n The feeling of extreme pity that you have for other people who simply don’t realise that you know the right direction to go in and they don’t.

Intelligence n The more advanced the microprocessor becomes in your laptop, the more it takes over from you and the more powerless you feel.

Discrete v To say bad things in private about Greek islands in the Mediterranean.

Coffer n Someone who coughs with extreme surprise when they open their wallet to find that there is far more money in there than they realised.

Incense v To become irate when the smoke from burning sticks gets into your eyes, nose, and throat

These definitions and others can be found in the book called The Rhetorical Musketeers and other Stories

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
