Vocabulary Lesson

Sometimes I make up words.  It's not on purpose or anything; I just can't think of the right one sometimes.  So the other night at the restaurant, I was bussing a table, and clutzily knocked over a glass, which rolled off the table and totally broke. 

"Don't move," I told the group of four old fisherman at the next table, and picked up the big chunks.  "I'm gonna have to get the vacuum, this glass really sharded.  Shard.ed?  SHARDED.?  I guess I mean shattered."

As I walked away, I heard one of the old fishermen whisper to the other, in the most Southern accent you can imagine, "I thought sharded was a shit 'n a fart."

No Kady maybe that is what you did as you bent over to pick up the glass. Sharting should be included in the dictionary, it is truly the perfect word for that bodily function. It is not something you want to do at a party as Phillip Seymour Hoffman demonstrated in Along Came Polly.
