a confession

I am studying to take the GRE, so I'm working on my vocabulary. I came to a rather embarrassing realization last night:

Ruse: a wily subterfuge. Synonyms: see 'trick'.

While I thought I was being clever with my blog address, it turns out I was misled. 'Ruse' does not connote deep thoughts or profound observation; rather, it implies a trick, a 'wily subterfuge' to throw off pursuers in a hunt.

So if you were looking for the real LynnaeEtta, you came to the wrong place. :)

so, were you thinking of "muse" instead of "ruse"?

LynnaeEtta said...

Perhaps. My last name begins with 'ru', so I thought I was being clever...
