My wife laughed at me again the other day. Not with me, mind you, at me.
I used the word “hence” in her presence. I’m not even sure what the situation was when the term came up, however, my son and I believe I used the word correctly and there was no need for her hearty guffaw.
She called me a Mister Smarty-pants with my big words. I pointed out that “hence” only has five letters. She proceeded to explain that during the entire 23 years she has known me, she has never once heard the word “hence” come out of my mouth. She evidently is much more used to my more common one-syllable phrases such as “yep” and “huh?”
