The imposter......
.......................................................................................

A friend called me an imposter today. Mostly because she thinks that after claiming to create a trivial blog i was tackling some deep, meaningful issues. The reasons apart, having known the vocabulary skills of this lady in question, I wish she had called me a charlatan which would necessarily amount to her calling me an impostor. Not all people know the meaning of charlatan. If she called me charlatan some people may think she was calling me cute stuff. Granted they can look it up in the dictionary, but how many people actually do that! They would just try to figure out a meaning for it based on the context and the way it sounds. Charlatan sounds so close to charismatic or chauvinistic for those who havent heard it. Charlatan sounds so french, and thus so sweet. The dictionary tells me it indeed was french, derived from Italian ciarlatano, which means from Cerreto, a city which was habitated by such impostors in question here. So thats what charlatan is, its a sweet sounding word with a negative meaning

Thus I really wish if she wanted to call me an imposter she should have done it this way, with batting eyelashes "Ohhh, you are such a charlatan ". She sill gets to say what she wants to say, and i get said what i deserve. All i want is that maybe some people will misunderstand it and think she was saying something like, "Ohh, You are such a knight in shining armor". Is that too much to ask? :)

This post also proves i am ohh so incorrigible :)
