Supposably Orientated Towards the Heroizing of Manliestness

Someone used the word “heroizing” on me this week. Twice. This would not get by a  sharp-eyed gardener (watch her pluck those cabbage worms), editor (lay? lie? laid? she’s on it), writer (need proof? look here), or eclipper like The Sublime Miss M.

She spots it for me, sandwich stuff, fascinating odd bits that I follow down the electronic sidewalk, nose aquiver (speaking of words that look made up).

Heroizing does, however, seem mighty applicable. I’ll give you that. Take, for example, the

Macho, Macho Sandwich

Macho, macho sandwich: Primanti Bros. named ‘manliest’ in U.S.
Tuesday, November 22, 2011

By China Millman, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Primanti Bros. has beaten out 8 other regional finalists for the title of the “Manliest Restaurant in America,” awarded by Men’s Health magazine and featured in the December issue on newsstands now.

On Nov. 30, the Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise” will feature the contest and explore what makes Primanti Bros. and the other regional finalists so “guy-friendly.”

And, I ask you, where are you gonna go with your manwich? Where can you simply bask in your bad heroizing selfness? Look no further.  The Manshed

    Tiera Humphries Bonnefond It drives me crazy when “troops” is used to talk about individuals in the service. I can be a member of a troop, but not a troop on my own. Websters defines troop as a group of soldiers. Aarghh!

    Donna Belleson I like the idea of people freely expressing themselves. There is something liberating about not always needing to be grammatically correct. That’s how new words and ideas are sometimes formed. I love words like Colbert’s, “truthiness”. The word-making process works a bit like art… someone important must endorse it before it is accepted as being ‘good’.

    I admit to being put off by errors and even try to go back to correct my own, when I catch them. But, for the most part, I look away because I know I am one of those who is very regularly screwing up!

    Saul Goldberg Well, yes, Donna. Howsomever, you gotta know the basix befo’ you can improvisise. Like doing straight lines before comedy; walking before running; and, like, well knowing how something is spelt first before you can intentionally misspeel it. Goddit? QED.

    Donna Belleson I hate to say it, but I plan to use heroizing in the future…jus cuz. More efficient than hero worship … one word too many and it takes the idea in an unnecessary direction.
