Heard a popular sports talk show personality call something an object failure the other morning. Can’t chalk this up to the sports-obsessed meathead factor: this guy is smart and articulate. He just confused two words that sound alike. Of course, he meant to say an abject failure, with abject meaning absolute and humiliating. Object isn’t even an adjective. I’m adding this to my list of Wayward Words and invite you to share any that you may have!
