I am convinced that the word “absolutely” has its own publicist. It’s everywhere all the time.
For example, take this Christmas selling season. Have you noticed how many things are not advertised as merely “free”, but “absolutely free”?
The word “free” means costing nothing. Adding “absolutely” to it does not make it any more free of cost.
I can understand a promise of “buy one, get one free.” But would it entice me even more to hear, “buy one, get one absolutely free”?
I think not.
Blogs are great for providing a forum for people like me to prattle on about things like this. And guess what?
Blogs are FREE.
No, I am not going to say it.
