I missed about 5 phone calls at work when Harry posted the photos on insta, another 5 when Niall went snapchat crazy yesterday, and was late to work today because I was staring slackjawed at the magazine photos. These boys are gonna get me so fired.

DAMNIT I KNOW! every time my manager came over to my desk today i was hunched over my phone. not a great look.

BUT THIS WAS LIFE CHANGING STUFF. SHE’D UNDERSTAND IF I JUST EXPLAINED THAT HERO OF THE LIVING WORLD HARRY STYLES HAS ASCENDED TO THE NEXT PLANE OF EXISTENCE!!!

There’s a kids club called ‘After School Satan’. The Satanic Temple’s alternative program doesn’t worship or even believe in the existence of Satan, but instead focuses on scientific rationality, aims to teach kids that all issues have multiple perspectives, and engages them in literature and science lessons, creative learning activities, puzzle solving, and art projects.

Alright everyone. It’s metaphor interpretation time.
‘I’m a crumpled up piece of paper lying here.’
‘Two paper airplanes flying, flying, flying.’
Taylor was a crumpled up piece of paper; constantly being crushed down and hurt by the media. Then, however, she folded into an airplane, a new version of the same piece of paper, and she rose above their snide comments, renewed and strong.

If we’re going to be pedantic, let’s go all the way.

“Literally” doesn’t literally mean “literally.” It means “pertaining to the alphabet.”

It’s from the same root as “letter” and “literature.” The non-figurative meaning is itself figurative.

Hyperbole and euphemism are inherently unstable parts of language. One generation’s novel metaphor is the next generation’s tired cliché.

If you still need a word for The Meaning Formerly Known As Literally, there’s: physically, actually, non-metaphorically, non-hyperbolically, and all kinds of newer metaphors.
