The use of a word to modify or govern two or more words usually in such a manner that it applies to each in a different sense or make sense with only one. (Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary)
For example, “This spring I am suffering from a broken toe and heart.”
It’s been a really rough spring with losing my MJ and my Djali llama. I’m pretty sure I lost Djali to the same illness that has killed some kids, and I’m still afraid I’m going to lose two more. Now Marley seems to be ill with the same symptoms. It’s been overwhelming. Add to that a broken toe which led me to the doctor. I now am scheduled to have surgery in July. Granted the surgery is for the arthritis and spurs in my toe, not the break, but still. I’m having a hard time doing a lot with the painful toe.
I guess the result of all this is that it’s become work to blog and visit other blogs. I know I’m not going to be linking up to those memes I love for a while, and who knows if I’ll have time and motivation to post daily. I will still try to get around to visit, but I’m sure I will be largely absent for a while with all of this going on.
