As I wait for inexplicably late printing (because COVID, I presume), I see a heater face way behind the counter to join the one in the banner. This one evokes the Home Alone face, which makes me wonder . . .
If I can be home and home alone,
why can’t I be office and office alone?
At least it’s not because COVID. This peculiarity of the language-as-she-is-spoke certainly predates the pandemic.
