Outlier

Prompt: Outlier

garfield outlier

Love or hate the cartoon character Garfield, you have to love the outlier locust in the above strip.

How many people do you know who “outlie” in this way? The word “outlier” technically means separate from the pack, but the word “lie” has multiple meanings.

I love language. As a word nerd, I find stuff like this interesting.

Though I did disappoint myself with this prompt post, because “outlier” elicits ideas so sci-fi, so fantastical, so outside the box. But it is the end of a tough week, I ate too much Friday pizza, and feel drowsy. I might have to go outlie down.
