Getting creative with English

I’m a stickler for punctuation, simply because without it the written word makes no sense. But I love the way people get creative with language. 

Creative English – Long live change!

I discovered yesterday that ‘gravy’ apparently means ‘excellent’ these days if you’re under twenty five. Not so long ago ‘wicked’ was a wholly negative word but today even old folk use ‘wicked’ to describe something spectacularly, awesomely good.

And according to the nice young chap in Le Magasin, a posh cafe in Lewes, ‘epic’ is the perfect way to describe their cake selection. Which is, I have to admit, probably the finest in the known universe.
