Pet Peeve of the Day

There's no such word as "cardi".

That knitted thing with sleeves that's open in front is called a CARDIGAN. For crying out loud, it's only three more letters to not sound like the kind of person who dots their "i"s with hearts.

Corollary: It's not a shrug if it's just a short cardigan. It's just a short cardigan, though it might be a bolero if it's also close-fitting and cannot close in the front. Alternately, your cardigan should be a size or two bigger.

I could not click "funny" or "like" so I had to post a comment.

In my head, in this Brave New World, I am clicking commentary all the time. Most of the time it's a good thing it stays in my head.
