It’s a literally a lottery
I can’t believe that literally is being downgraded. According to the Oxford English dictionary it can now also mean metaphorically due to, they feel, established wrong usage. Sited as an example is, ‘I’ve literally been to hell and back’ Some may say that hell can also have a metaphorical meaning therefore the above statement may then be literally true as anyone could literally go to a metaphor and back in the old understanding of the word. Metaphorically never took off as word of everyday use but what’s to take the place of literally? I really don’t know.
BBC were round last week filming us for a new series called ‘Pies and Puds’ to be screened later on this year. Paul Hollywood? Celebrity baker seemingly. What next celebrity bricky? Why not. Still making Bramble and Raspberry wine.
