1) The word “manly” doesn’t have the connotation it used to. Back in the day, it used to be used in all seriousness as a compliment. It meant strong, honorable, and noble. Now, you rarely hear it unless it’s used playfully, usually as a joke. As in, “Look at those manly bunny-slippers.”
2) I dislike that the word “queer” is now relegated solely to the world of homosexuality. Its original meaning has a slightly different connotation than “weird” or “odd” do, and I think I should be able to use it without raising eyebrows.
3) Dr. Pepper is the elixir of life.
