A little too harsh, don’t you think?

Today’s Word of the Day is draconian which means, “cruel or severe.” When I learned this word way back when I was a young Designer Sophisticate, I overused this. I used it to describe any punishment or outcome that I didn’t like, even if it wasn’t actually cruel or severe in comparison to an alternative. As such, my parents actually banned me from using this word in conversation for several years. LOL. I resisted telling them I found that draconian of them. I felt that would have inflamed things. For today’s Musical Interlude Friday, I picked a song that, well, you’ll get it. Here is “Don’t Be Cruel” by Elvis Presley. Enjoy!

Tell me what you think!
