Roget and Me
I've been meaning to write about one of my dear writing friends. He's been a friend for a long time, beginning in high school. He's handsome, organized, and very knowledgeable. They say I'm in love with words. He is, too. I guess that's why I have him around me all the time. He's always there for me and anyone who needs help, too.
This particular friend was born in 1946 which means he's one year older than I am, so we have a lot in common as far as history. I keep tabs on him especially when I'm writing.
When I say, "There's got to be something better than this."
Roget says, "Make sure to be precise and pick the best."
It never fails. He's right, and I move on knowing I've done my best by him.
Hail to my old but constant friend and writing companion, the Third Edition of Roget's International Thesaurus!
