Last night I dreamt about President Bush. He was working on a speech, reading it out loud to himself. He used the phrase “evil-prompters.”
I had been warned to not correct his English, but this was too much. I giggled and told him that although people might understand what he’s getting at, it wasn’t good English. He should use a phrase like “people who promote evil.”
Bush got very huffy. He responded by saying that it might not be good English, but people will understand what he means and that’s just the way he talks.
