    Stephen: But that’s a really good neologism!

    Kadie-Wa: Breathe slowly. It will pass.

    Recently I met a lawyer named Deb Solvibili and thought “that should be an adverb.” As in “She’s solvibili taking her own sweet time” or “The kitten bounded solvibili in the spring sunshine.” You get the idea.

    Aren’t adverbs the ones we are told to never use (at least the -ly words)

    Mark: Ignore such stupid advice. All parts of speech are good.

    So does Ms You Know Who. We won’t mention names lest I seem to be trading on her glory…is an abundance of adverbs the secret of success?

    Oh no, that’s not the secret of success! To be successful you have to love Elvis and dance whenever you can—especially near Stephen Fry.
