Mystified...

I overheard someone speaking of the recent heat wave in Kentucky. She was saying...

"We were at a pool party at the country club and heat was just oppressive!"

Really? Oppressive? The heat at pool party at the local, private country club?

Oppressive?

I found it humorous and sad all at the same time. What a poor choice of words. We just don't get it sometimes, do we?

We should raise money to build private country club pools in Tibet -- they're known to help overcome oppression.

I wonder how she would describe a bush taxi ride on a 133 degree day in Niger?
