The Wisdom of the Streets

The English language gives us so many options. We never have to use the same word twice within the same paragraph or certainly the same sentence. There is “dragging,” and there is “tired.” There is “smart,” and there is “sharp." And I could go on and on.

But yesterday I discovered a new one. Have you considered a synonym for “homeless?” Well, as I was walking on Fifth Avenue, I came upon a disheveled man sitting on the sidewalk near a Fifth Avenue building who was wearing a sign that said “dwellingly challenged!” Can you top that?
