Have you ever gone to use a word, then decided your audience wouldn't receive it the right way? I hate having to dumb down my vocabulary for business, but I'm regularly given a hard time for using "big words". So tell me... is this really so much that I must be mocked for it?
I was going to use the word analogous today (it was honestly the first word that popped into my head) but instead I jammed on the backspace and said "just like". Do you know how much I attempt to avoid the word "like" as a rule?
Maybe that's just me rebelling against my Valley Girl roots.
