I just got a form-letter blog pitch from a PR agency congratulating me on my “bludgeoning career“.
I’m going to assume they meant “burgeoning”. I’m also going to assume they sent this form letter out to hundreds of other bloggers. Which is kind of hysterical.
Burgeoning: To begin to grow or blossom; to flourish.
Bludgeoning: To beat someone repeatedly with a heavy object; to inflict blunt- force trauma.
My reply: That’s very kind of you, but honestly I haven’t bludgeoned anyone publicly in years. And I was certainly never so adept at it that I would have considered it “a career”. I do appreciate the recognition though.
Surprisingly, there has been no response from the PR agency.
