"Step foot." It's not step foot, it's set foot. Or step. One or the other, not an illiterate mashup. :evil:

I don't watch news nor the sportsing things but I happened to overhear a sports broadcaster person say that their local team was "LITERALLY on fire". I felt bad for that team.

From Merriam Webster:

Definition of literally

1: in a literal sense or manner: such as
a: in a way that uses the ordinary or primary meaning of a term or expression
He took the remark literally.
a word that can be used both literally and figuratively
b—used to emphasize the truth and accuracy of a statement or description
The party was attended by literally hundreds of people.
c: with exact equivalence : with the meaning of each individual word given exactly
The term "Mardi Gras" literally means "Fat Tuesday" in French.
d: in a completely accurate way
a story that is basically true even if not literally true

2: in effect : VIRTUALLY —used in an exaggerated way to emphasize a statement or description that is not literally true or possible
will literally turn the world upside down to combat cruelty or injustice

So, in other words, the word "literally" now has no meaning whatsoever. Literally. :shock: :lol:

I thought you couldn't use the word being defined in the definition....

. . . growing "exponentially." :roll:

Well, they probably mean it figuratively. :wink:
More likely, they have no idea at all what it means. Especially the ones who pronounce it "expodentially." :shock: :lol:

"Essential workers". Anyone who has to work to support themselves, their family, pay a mortgage, rent, buy groceries, etc., is pretty essential.
